Submit mail format...

Well, I hv a form here which has a some text fields that need to be filled. But when the form is submitted, the mail sent to the person comes in a very horrible format. Something like this:-

textfield=amitapotnis@hotmail.com&Mail+Me=Mail+me

How do I bring this to human format so as to make life easier?

You need to use cgi. (e.g. PERL or ASP)

Use a third party to process the form for you, one good provider of this service is www.dk3.com, go their and follow the steps.

it might be an idea to try using one of these other form mailing programs as not all computers have a mail program setup properly.
The results mailed to you are in an url-encoded form.  In order to change this to plain text you need to add an attribute into your form tag.
<form enctype="text/plain" ....>
.......form
</form>

Hope this helps you
