I posted in general originally and was instructed to post here... I have a from to request name and email to be submited to email me the html code for the form is

<FORM name="LayoutForm" method="POST" action="mailto:rob@peacestream.org" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<INPUT type="text" style="position:absolute;left:24px;top:103px;width:112px; z-index:39" size="14" name="email" value="">
</FORM>

1. I can type an email address in the form but the Submit button does not submit.
2. I can hit return or enter after typing in the email address and I will get the email posted to my email but with A POSTDATA.ATT that I can not open. I get an error: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel." How do I do that?

So, one thing at a time: 1. Your Submit button doesn't work because the form area only covers the email field. Pull the form area both towards the top and towards the bottom so the form are covers all three fields.
2. Change the encoding type in plain txt, so you will receive it in plain text.

Thank You!! That did it. The submit button was somehow not on the form field at all.
