I have a site that I have created  a form that will use the following code
to email me.Howevr it does not consistantly work.

<FORM enctype="text/plain"
ACTION=" Web Site"

  <p align="center"><strong>Name
    <input type="text" name="textfield">
  <p align="center"><strong>Email Address
    <input type="text" name="textfield3">

  <p align="center"><strong>Your Suggestions for SeniorNet Website only,
violators will be procecuted!!</strong>
    <textarea name="textfield2"></textarea>

  <p align="center">
    <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">
    <input name="clear" type="reset" id="clear" value="Clear">
  <p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
 However, it is not working for all users. Any advice to improve this,

No it won't. You need to use a proper form mail script on your server.

That's the problem, right there.

mailto: form actions are not reliable.  Use a server-side script
(action='/some/url') that sends the form data to you, rather than having
the browser do it.

aren't you a little annoyed that you're paying newsfeeds at least
$9.95/month so you can advertise for them?
