Hi there I have created a feedback form in basic HTML, and when it submits it sends it through outlook or a similar email client.

Could anyone let me know if this is possible? Below is my current code:

If you do not want a user to go through an email client, you have to use a serverside languae to process the data and store it or email it. You will not be able to pull this off with JavaScript alone.

Thanks for the reply Eric, so what is a server-side language exactly? JSP? Perl? PHP?

What ever you feel like using or your server supports.

If you want to do this with servlets (JSP would be a poor choice), the JavaMail API is discussed in the Other Java APIs forum.
