You have to place it between the "form" tag

<FORM ACTION="bla.html" METHOD="post">
 <INPUT..... NAME="blabla">
</FORM>

the "name" tag is needed to fetch the data in bla.html

How to fetch the data is a choise you must make... you can either do it by JavaScript,ASP or CGI

I can transmit the datas via e-mail in the action part but how do I call a second site after clicking the Submit Button ? The data
transmission via e-mail works but I'd like to view a site which says the user the the datas have been sent.

1. You really need to have a cgi backend to do this right.

2. It seemed possible with a zero frame technique or maybe not (martinag said that this won't work with mail submission on another post somewhere).  Never tried it myself, but if you place a similar form in a hidden frame and have javascript send that form and update the main screen simultaneously.  But this is so not the way to do it since even when the mail failed to be sent, the screen will still say that it has been sent.

Go with cgi or non at all.
This can't be done correctly without cgi.

Ok, then I must do it without showing a second site. Does anybody know, how I can make the datas, which are sent to me by e-mail,
readable ? The datas consist of &'s and +'s ... thats really
sinewy. It would be better if they would arrive formatted like this:

Name=Myname
Street=Teststrasse 9

etc.

I get them as an attachment.

But that will not send them on to another site after the submit.... because you're using the ACTIOn for the Mailto tag.

If you want to do BOTH, the correct way would be with a cheap little free mail script like fmail.pl.

Processes forms to an address specified in a hidden tag and then sends them on to a URL specified in a hidden tag.
