The code I'm using looking like this:
Code:
<form action="mailto:vito@ufa-league.net" method="post" enctype="text/plain">

<legend>Personal info</legend>
Name:<br>
<input type="text" name="name">
<br>
Mail:<br>
<input type="text" name="mail">
<br><br>
Which is your favorite color?<br>
I like red<input type="checkbox" name="color" value="Red"><br>
I like blue<input type="checkbox" name="color" value="Blue"><br>
I like yellow<input type="checkbox" name="color" value="Yellow"><br>
I like green<input type="checkbox" name="color" value="Green">
<br><br>Comments:<br><textarea name="comments" rows="6"
cols="65"></textarea>
</form>
<input type="submit" value="Send">
Does anyone know what is wrong ? Why I'm not recieving any messages,, simple "send" button doesnt work. Sad

I tried, and its better but still not like i expected.
Before, "send" button wasn't active at all right now after pressing this button its redirecting to Office Outlook, does it have to be like that ?
I thought that after pressing button this will send a message directly from a this form to my mailbox without any help from external programs, i think i have seen something like that in the past on other forummotin forum, any ideas how code like that should look like ?
