Help with a website contact form

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
hi.  I am working on a website and am very much a newbie.  I purchased a website template that i like, and i am working on it in WE 2.  My problem is that i am having trouble figuring out how to make the form submit to an email address on click.  The code i am working with is attached.
Where and what do i put in to make the form email itself to me?
<div class="style1">Use this handy form!&nbsp; We will be back in touch right away!</div>
                <form action="" id="contact-form">
                  <div class="wrapper">
                    <textarea rows="" cols="">Message: </textarea>
                    <input type="text" value="Name: " />
                    <input type="text" value="Your E-mail: " />
                    <input type="text" value="Your phone #: " />
                    <div class="clear"></div>
                    <a href="#" onclick="document.getElementById('contact-form').submit()"><span><span>send</span></span></a> <a href="#" onclick="document.getElementById('contact-form').reset()"><span><span>clear</span></span></a> </div>
