I have a simple form with one field.  After I click the submit button, I would like to clear the Esend field.  Right now, everytime I open the form it is showing all of the old email addresses.  How can I clear this field?  Thank you.

<form name="contactform" method="post" action="/Scripts/send_form_email.php">
        <div align="center" >Enter Your E-Mail Address</div><br />
        <div align="center"><input name="ESend" type="text" id"Esend" maxlength="80" size="30"/></div><br />
        <div align="center"><input name="Send" type="submit" value="Submit" /></div><br />
        <div align="center"><input name="Cancel" type="button" id="close-btn" value="Cancel" /></div><br />

Did you try to add the autocomplete="off" attribute to the <form> element?
