Hi All...

I have a HTML form which accepts user information. I have a javascript which does some validations and some processing on that information. Now, I need to send the user information through email.

Can javascript(or HTML) do this WITHOUT having the user to open his mail brwoser? This is because, my javascript does some processing and I do not want the user to view that. When the Outlook window opens to send the mail, all information will appear as the mail body, which is what, I don't want.

Also, it is always better to send the email seamlessly, rather than have the user click 'Send' in Outlook.


Can someone help me out?



Cheers

Not possible. A mailto link will utilize the default email client. Anything else requires server-side activity.
