    form submit with Outlook97

    I have a small problem. I have writen some code for my father's company, that simply put; is attached to an e-mail - to produce a HTML E-mail. On submission of the form, it should be sent to the addressee. This performs fine in Outllook 2000, but not in Outlook 97. I am yet to try Express or XP.

    Code Listing....

    <form action="mailto:d198574@yahoo.com?subject=Information Request" method="post" enctype="text/plain">

    <center>
    <table cellspacing=10>
    <tr>

    <td valign="top">
    <input type="checkbox" value="Futher" name="LaunderChannels">Launder Channels<br>
    <input type="checkbox" value="Futher" name="WeirPlates">Weir Plates<br>

    </td>

    <td width=50>
    &nbsp;
    </td>


    <td valign=top align=right>
    <b>Name:&nbsp;</b><input type="text" size="20" name="NAME"><br>
    <b>Company:&nbsp;</b><input type="text" size="20" name="COMPANY"><br>
    <b>Address:&nbsp;</b><textarea name="ADDRESS"></textarea><br>
    <b>Post Code:&nbsp;</b><input type="text" name="POSTCODE" size="20"><br>
    <b>Telephone:&nbsp;</b><input type="text" name="TELEPHONE" size="20"><br>
    <b>Fax:&nbsp;</b><input type="text" name="FAX" size="20"><br>
    <b>Email:&nbsp;</b><input type="text" name="EMAIL"><br>
    </td>

    </tr>
    </table>

    <input name="submit" type="submit" value="Contact Me">
    <input type="reset" name="Reset" value="Reset">
    </center>

    </form>

    YOUR HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED

    d198574,

    There is nothing wrong with the code as far as I know, I have tested it using Outlook XP and works fine.

    Maybe try using: enctype="multipart/form-data", see below.

    <form action="mailto:d198574@yahoo.com?subject=Information Request" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

    Also, when you say it does not work in Outlook 97, exactly what does it do.

    Unfortunatley i have only been informed of it's resultant lacking. It simply e-mails a blank message to the user's e-mail address. No subject, no body text.
