View Full Version : form submit with Outlook97

11-04-2002, 07:16 PM
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....

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.
