<form action="MAILTO:tech_overload@chevyzseries.com" method="post" enctype="text/plain">

Hi techoverload,

You'll see the images didn't make it, sometimes the forum code is touchy!

A question - are you using ChronoForms in Joomla or is thais just a general html question? Assuming that you are using ChronoForms (as this is the ChronoForms forum)

Please remove the form tags from your html code as ChronoFormns re-writes them.

I believe that a mailto action will work but that's waste of ChronoForms. Complete the required info in the General tab, turn debug on and see what results.
