submission form help
I can't seem to get a basic submission form to work on my site. The code I am using is:
<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="mailto:EMAIL ADDRESS HERE">
<font size="1" face="Arial, Helvetica" color="#0033CC">Sign up for our newsletter!</font></b>
<input type="text" name="textfield" value="Enter e-mail here">
<input type="submit" name="apply" value="OK">
Can someone plese help me? The write email window comes up with the email address intact but the information I put in the text fields do not show up in the body of the email.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me. Off to bed

mailto is not a valid form action. It is used as a link to open the users default mail client. To process the form your action should point to a script such as formmail.cgi if you have it.
