What don't you know how to use with it? you want the form to be sent to your E-mail correct? What do you want the form to do? Do you want it to redirect you to a different page after they click submit or something else. JF

I want to have it directed to my email account but the way that, that is, it directs it only to a page

You mean that you want the entire page to be directed to YOUR E-mail account. This would allow everyone who uses your form to have access to your E-mail.

If you want to have it SENT to your E-mail and have the page redirect to a different page insert this under form action. Value is the address that you want them to be redirected to.

<input type="hidden" name="url" value="text">

If you have PHP installed on your server, why are you using the ugly, unreliable mailto: action? I suggest you have a look at the PHP mail() (http://uk.php.net/mail) function.

Oh, and Freeman meant an URL, not your email address.
