    Hi, people...

    I'm having problems with an e-mail form I've created. This is my first webpage, and my first e-mail form, so I'm still working out the kinks...

    The problem I'm having is that when you click submit on the form (at least in my browser, IE 6 SP1), it asks you if you want to submit it and warns you that your e-mail address will show, instead of just doing it.

    Also, when I try to use it in Mozilla, it doesn't even send the data. It just opens up my e-mail program and waits for me to write something, and none of the form data is in there.

    And while I'm at it, I'd like to open a new window (with no navigation/address bar) when the user clicks on the link to the form, with the new window only being as big as it needs to be to hold all the form fields in it. Does that make sense?

    Anyway, here's the link to the form itself...

    Help?!

    Thanks!

    Both of those are unavoidable; the browser does that to prevent spammers from grabbing your IP address (they could make the form submit without your knowledge; the browser tells you before that happens).

    It is possible however to do it server-side...I don't recall, do you have PHP on your server?

    It should be reasonably simple to modify the script to suit your needs...they can already enter the necessary information in the "Comments" field.
