The trouble with using this method (mailto) to send form results is that it is highly dependent on the browser in use and the email client in use. In particular, some of the most popular versions of Internet Explorer will not work correctly. With all of the browser troubles, you're likely to lose about half of your users' messages. Also, what about people with Javascript disabled?

In fact few browsers these days accept mailto as a form action. You need a really old browser for it to work as more modern browsers simply open the email program (if any) and ignore the form. If you are going to use a form then use a server-side formmail script as the action - there are several good free ones out there.
