This is a real problem with mailto forms that utilize having to open a third party software to send the mail( such as MS Outlook). I recommend using php as the sending script. It is a little bit more time consuming to set up- but once done it is very easy for your customer. Take a look here;

It will walk you through step by step. The form in the middle is a working form. So just try hitting submit on it and it will prompt you for your name and so on. If you have problems or questions just post back.
