Hi All

I'd like to collect the contents of a form into an e-mail and send the e-mail without using any server-side components.

I've encountered forms which pop a message up, telling you that the data you entered is about to be transferred through e-mail and therefore is unsecure.

Is this possible? I have tried using mailto:xyz@xyz.com in the action tag of the form, but the content of the form is collected into an unreadable attachment!!

How do I get around this?

Thanks,

nItRiC

have you tried opening the attachment into a text editor such as notepad?

Try that, let me know if it works :D

In your form tag you need to add this:
enctype="text/plain"

That should clean up the text.
