submitting a form

I have a form on my site that the user has to fill out and submit. I am using the following method:

<form method=POST action="mailto:xxx@xxx.xxx.xxx"
      enctype="text/plain" >

This only works for Netscape. Is there a simple way like this that also works for AOL and IE? Also, is there anyway to make the e-mail secure? (i.e eliminate the security warning that pops up)
Thanks.

Here is a FORM you should have no trouble with, in an Browser:

<FORM ACTION="mailto:xxx@xxx.com?Subject=My Reply Form" METHOD="POST" ENCTYPE="text/plain">
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="Name" VALUE="">
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="Email" VALUE="">
<P>
<TEXTAREA NAME="Comments" ROWS="10" COLS="35"></TEXTAREA>
<BR>
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Submit">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<INPUT TYPE="reset" VALUE="Clear">
</FORM>

To remove the Security Warning, you need to use https (requires Secure Socket Layer with your Web Host) or to use a script like CGI/Perl in the ACTION statement (requires CGI access with your Web Host).

If you do not have CGI access and still want to get rid of the Security Warning, try a place like http://freedback.com/ and see what you think.
