    Submit button help

    I need to get the form on my page to email me the info on the form when Submit is clicked. I got close but when it gets emailed I can't read it. Help would be great.

    Thanks

    How is the email being delivered? If through a server side script, could you post the code please?

    Using mailto for an action is generally not advisable but try adding in enctype="text/plain" .

    <form method="post" action="mailto:youremail@email.com" enctype="text/plain">

    Are you able to use any server side language like php? Does your host allow php?
