The best way to do this is to use a Form to Email script.

Most hosting companies will have one available that you can use that's already installed on your server. The instructions to add those types of scripts are pretty straight forward and don't require a lot of coding know-how. Check your hosting company's knowledge base/help section for "Form To Email Script".

  • Mailto links are not reliable.
  • Mailto links promote spam.
  • Mailto links put your e-mail address and server at risk.
  • If you know what's good for you, do NOT use mailto links.

 

Use a secure contact form & processing script in a server-side language supported by your web hosting plan (PHP, ASP.NET, ColdFusion, etc...).

 

Or, use a 3rd party form service like JotForms or Wufoo.com.  Form data are processed by their servers, not yours.
