    Welcome to AOL...heh heh.

    With over 30 million members, it's a good idea to make sure it works in AOL. Problem is, their email is set up so strangely, hardly anything seems to work...even your simple text form.

    Some questions:

    Do you have AOL to test with?
    What error message do you get?
    HTML or plain text?

    I'm afraid I don't have the answer to your question without more information...and even then...no guarantees.

    As usual, it's best to do this server-side with a cgi/php/asp script. Using mailto: attracts spambots, annoys customers by opening their email client, has prompts, is unprofessional looking, and is much much slower. Using a server-side script, the customer just fills out the form and poof...It's sent in 2 seconds. These are available freely at Bravenet and several more at Hotscripts under 'remotely hosted' scripts.
