    Hiya penguin. Welcome to the forums.

    The form kinda-works for me. It pops up with my email client to send stuff, so I guess its working.

    If its not working for you, you have to make sure you have a default email client setup.

    IF you are uing Internet Explorer, click Tools, Internet Options, Programs. Then look in 'Email' to see if there is a program there. If there isn't, this is why it doesn't work.

    mailto forms are unreliable at best. You may want to look into whether freehosting.com has some formmail scripts setup, and use them instead.

    Merry Christmas!

    Hey bd, welcome to the forums.

    freehosting.net is a part of http://freeservers.com I took a look at thier faqs according to http://help.freeservers.com/cgi-bin/help/enhance/form/a_create.html

    you will need to change your form tag to
    <form action="/cgi-bin/cgiemail method="post">

    kick off your shoes and hang awhile

    Dave
