What is wrong with my Java Script code on the attached?  I want the program to send two emails if certain parameters are true and one email if other parameters are true.  The program runs without sending back an error, but does not send the email.

The following is the code:

Mailto: will probably just open the default e-mail client, I don't think it will send the e-mail too.

In other subroutines where there is not an "if else if"  variable, mailto both opens the client and sends the email.  Besides, in this one, it doesn't even open the mail client - it just gives the "thank you" page.

i'm not sure if it will work but you could try using the document.write

if _POST(120_w/o_air = "checkbox")
            {
                  document.write('<form action="MAILTO:bill.sullivan@mac.com, bsullivan@northlakecc.org?subject=Kaizen Support Request" method="post" enctype="text/plain">');
            }
      else if (b = "checkbox")
            {
                  document.write('<form action="MAILTO:bill.sullivan@mac.com, bsullivan@northlakecc.org?subject=Kaizen Support Request" method="post" enctype="text/plain">');
            }
      else if (c = "checkbox")
            {
                  document.write('<form action="MAILTO:bill.sullivan@mac.com, bsullivan@northlakecc.org?subject=Kaizen Support Request" method="post" enctype="text/plain">');
            }
      else if (d = "checkbox")
            {
                  document.write('<form action="MAILTO:bill.sullivan@mac.com, bsullivan@northlakecc.org?subject=Kaizen Support Request" method="post" enctype="text/plain">');
            }
      else if (e = "checkbox")
            {
                  document.write('<form action="MAILTO:bill.sullivan@mac.com, bsullivan@northlakecc.org?subject=Kaizen Support Request" method="post" enctype="text/plain">');
            }
      else if (f = "checkbox")
            {
                  document.write('<form action="MAILTO:bill.sullivan@mac.com, bsullivan@northlakecc.org?subject=Kaizen Support Request" method="post" enctype="text/plain">');
