Yes you can, but please note that depending on the visitor's email client settings, the form info might not be sent. (This is has nothing to do with the email address, it's just a warning to you. You should use a php script to send the info, not the simple mailto: action in your form)

hugo-

Yes and no. Yes it should get there if the client uses the microsoft outlook or default program to send it and it is configured correctly. To be honest- I usually ignore it when it brings up outlook to send the mail. The reason is that it leaves a copy of the sent mail on the computer. If I am at the library or work- I donot want a copy lying around. Therefore- many many not use it for that reason.

Using the php script to send the form info is the best way and easiest.

Copy the script you used and post it here along with the URL of your form and we'll take a look.

In the future- post a new thread topic like this on it's own. That way- when someone does a search that has the same problem, they will benefit from your thread.
