That would be normal operation for your situation.  Most of the time, we create a second page in a server programming language like PHP or ASP that send the email from the web server.  What you have above is all you can do with just HTML.  Do you know what server languages your web server supports?

use the following code (ASP)
Dim Mail
set Mail=server.createobject("CDO.Message")
Mail.From = xxxx@xxx.xxx
Mail.To=xxxxxxx@xxxxx.xxxxx
Mail.Subject = "Subject"
Mail.TextBody = "BODY"

Mail.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
Mail.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") ="relay-hosting.secureserver.net"
Mail.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") =25
Mail.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/tpauthenticate") =1
Mail.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") ="my email login eg email@domain.com"
Mail.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") ="my email password"
Mail.Configuration.Fields.Update
'Mail.Send
set Mail=nothing

That's nice but "relay-hosting.secureserver.net" is specific to Godaddy hosting.  You would need to put in your own SMTP mail server if you use that code.
