Use:

ACTION="parent.location='mailto:yourname@yourserver.com'"

Note the single quotes within the double quotes.

Or another way is to use:

<input type="button" Name="Submit" onclick="parent.location='mailto:yourname@yourserver.com'">

techbuilder: Why the strange parent.location? A mailto action works fine with ACTION="mailto:yourname@yourserver.com@" if the maito works at all - no javascript needed...

This is the second time I see you use that and I still do not get it...

I think Khairi has problems getting his server to actually process a successfully submitted mailto. Sorry to say I haven't got the faintest idea of how to configure an MS server...
