How to Write a Simple Form for submission by e-mail

How do I write a simple form for submission by e-mail. Seems to me you can 
just use a mailto: url as the action attribute of an html form element like 
<form name=seek method=POST action="mailto:rcaloggero@bhcc.state.ma.us">
<em>Name: </em><input type=text name=qt size=40 value="" maxlength=2047>
... ... ...
I've tried using method = GET as well as POST -- it just warns me about 
e-mail submission and puts me in my mail program with a blank message. 
Shouldn't it at least have the names of the input fields along with their 
values as strings like "qt=Something"?

Sorry for the newbie question.
