Hi, i've set up a form on a web site to allow people to email me theirr details to join a mailing list. However this seems to only work on certain peoples browsers. ie it works fine on a few peoples IE but not others, on theirs it just emails an empty form... any ideas? the code is below for the POST

<form name ="details" method="post" action="mailto:**email address here**" enctype="text/plain">

Does your server support server-side scripting (i.e., ASP. PHP)?

The best, most consistent way to email form data would be to have a script compile the form into a message and mail it from the server.

If you look up your scripting format plus "form mail" on Google (i.e., "PHP form mail") you'll get a bunch of free, copy and paste scripts to use.

Hope this helps...
