Hello MegaMaster

Can you explain a bit more about your code or any of the black bold text below help.

<form name="myform" action="handle-data.pl">
Search: <input type='text' name='query' />
<input type="image" src="go.gif" />
</form>



<a href="mailto:yourname@somewhere.com?subject=More info needed">Hello True Blue</a>


Warning:
Placing a link to your main e-mail address on an open public form will lead to spam. Only use a secondary e-mail address you can bin if needed.

test: http://elementalheroshine.forumotion.com/h1-judge-admission-test-1

I'd suggest going with a free form maker if your not strong with HTML.
Google 'Emailmeform' and you'll get a good one.

Your opening form tag should look like this:

<form action="MAILTO:email address here" method="post" enctype="text/plain">

Hello MegaMaster

I used Microsoft Word 2002 to create a "newsletter" and got the same results, had to bin it in the end, but I did use the frame without text and added text later for better results.

so like

Code:
<body style="colbucket.com/albums/mm108/Coolx10/jadenheros-2.png">
<form name="judgeadmissiontest">
<form action="MAILTO:trimoski2008@gmail.com" method="post" enctype="text/plain">
  <p>Welcome to the official EHSA Judging Admission Test<br>

@True Blue, did u try sending it. its awkward. u have to choose to email it or not. I would prefer it auto-submit directly to me, but i guess since we can't use php this is the best that could be done.

Yes you need to include the form name. But all in one tag like this:

Code:

<form name="judgeadmissiontest" action="MAILTO:trimoski2008@gmail.com" method="post" enctype="text/plain">
