Hi
   From the code you have give the browser will open the mail client installed in the users machine. Please let me know whether you are asking for java code to send email.

if so you can use the following code:
 
 public static String sendMail() {
          Properties properties = new Properties();
          properties.put("mail.smtp.host", "<your smtp host>");
          properties.put("mail.from", "Sun Microystems");
         
          Session session = Session.getInstance(properties,null);
         
          try {
               Message message = new MimeMessage(session);
               int i=0;
               InternetAddress[] address = {new InternetAddress("<address here>")};
               message.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, address);
               message.setFrom(new InternetAddress("fromaddress@here.com"));
               message.setSubject("Hi");
               message.setContent(mail_Content, "text/html");
               transport = session.getTransport(address[0]);
                                        transport.connect();
                    transport.sendMessage(message,address);
                              }catch (Exception e) {
               System.out.println("Exception: " + e.toString());
               return "Error sending Mail";
           }
          return "Mail Successfully Send!";
     }

If you want to use mailto as the form action, your users will always be sending the email from a spawned instance of their email client. It is possible for you to use javascript to have the form submit action also cause the browser location to change to your thank you page, but that would be a little odd since the user won't necessarily have sent the email by the time the thank you page loads.

You'd be much better off having your form submit to a servlet which processes the input and send you an email, after which it would forward or redirect to your thank you page.
