Hi, 

If you do something like this you would send an ugly mailmessage to
the recipient address. This message has also quoted all non
alphanumeric characters. But you can try it ;)

	<form method=POST action="mailto:your@e.mail.com">
	<input name=subject size=70>
	<textarea name=body cols=70 rows=5></textarea>
	<input type=submit value="Send">
	</form>

But i prefere cgi-backends for this purposes..
