Uhm, do you know you can do a post to a mailto: action with your form contents? The browser will open your email client the same as a mailto link.

How does this handle the majority of users who use webmail clients?


I'd be really curious to A/B test mailto versus contact form, but my gut is that fewer people would use a mailto.


Yes, but since half the people who contact us have no smtp server, that doesn't work out too well.


Not sure about operating system's other than Windows, but gmail (opens a compose window in a new window) is my "default" handler for mailto: links.
