View Full Version : form not working properly in firefox

I have a form where I put the mailing address in the form action as below.

<FORM name=frmregister action="mailto:someone@hotmail.com?subject=Registration for Training Sessions" enctype="text/plain" method="POST" onsubmit="location.href='thanks.html';">

In the form I have some text areas for Name, Address, Phone, Email. I have a submit button also (input type="submit"). When I click the submit button in fire fox I am getting the thank you page (thanks.html) but at the same time my outlook gets activated and whatever fields I entered comes in my out look with the address (someone@hotmail.com). So at this point do I have to actually click the "send" from my outlook to send the email? So what if a user doesnt have any email setup? Is there any alternate way ?

You need to use a server side scripting language such as PHP.

Thats where I am encountering this problem. For this specific website it was set up just plain html and there is no server side or database set up. So at this point I dont know what to do. This is I am doing for some one else and they dont want to use server side coding or DB setup.

Well then they are stuck with the default mail handler opening.
