if you are using Windows & IE then yes, by using activeobject,
The code will not work for all clients, I guess the minimum you need on client side is Windows2000 or office 2000 with an SMTP server (?)

use this as a tip and search futher in google, post your question here for new doubts if any.

ActiveX only is for IE....
Server Side is the only way to go unless you use Mailto tag which uses the clients email.
