>From what I know, submitting a form like this is a *VERY BAD IDEA* as it has
varying effects depending on the individual user's email client -- some
behave nicely and submit the form invisibly, some ask you to do something to
send the reply, and some badly behaved clients refuse to do it at all. Tut
tut tut!

A reliable way of doing this is to use a cgi script (eg formmail) which
munges all the form fields into an email.
