Overview

Generates a predefined mailto link, from a flexible form. No page, or server PHP required.

The primary reason for using this stack would be for people who's servers do not have PHP installed. Servers without PHP are unable to send forms in the normal way, so generating a mailto link for your visitor is a great alternative.

There is of course no reason you can't use the form anyway. It's a great for:
• Seeing exactly which page the email was posted from.
• Send the email to multiple email addresses.
• Having a concise relevant predefined email from your visitor.
• It's secure.
• It looks great.

What's a mailto link?
A mailto link when clicked pops open the visitors default email client (Mail on a Mac for example), and populates the email ready to send. Try one of the demos below to see it in action.
