Html Email Form - How to Create an HTML Email Form

name type div website

An HTML email form is a popular way to allow interested parties to contact you via a website. Many popular website-building software packages have built-in HTML email form generators, but forms are very simple to create with only limited knowledge of HTML or other common website language coding, including PHP and Java.

An email form in HTML is a series of text-entry boxes that allow users to send you vital information via email without sending you email directly. This has several benefits:

  1. Your email address is not displayed on your website so it cannot be harvested for spam by directed or wandering web-bots. This is one of the primary methods spammers use to collect email addresses. They simply find them on random websites or on websites that meet a specific search criteria.
  2. The information you receive in the email via the form can be specific and organized to best meet your needs. A form makes sure that the sender does not leave out critical information and you always know where to look in an email to find the information you require.
  3. There is no chance that important emails are lost because the sender typed your email address incorrectly. If you are running an online business, a single mistyped email from a customer or vendor can wreak havoc.
  4. Customers and other website visitors can interact with you immediately instead of having to go to their email client. Instant interaction can be important in getting a new contact.

There are several different methods for creating an email form in HTML. The simplest method is to simply copy and paste the HTML code into the code for your webpage. This method may be difficult if you do not understand HTML or how a webpage works. Here are two examples of code that can be used for a simple HTML email form:

1. <form method=“post” action=“mailto:youremail@email.com”>
Name: <input type=“text” size=“10” maxlength=“30” name=“name”> <br />
Comments: <input type=“text” size=“10”
maxlength=“500” name=“comments”><br />

<input type=“submit” value=“Send”>
</form>


2. <form action=“mailto:you@yourdomain.com” method=“post” enctype=“text/plain”>
<TABLE BORDER=“0” CELLSPACING=“0” CELLPADDING=“4” WIDTH=“90%”>
<TR>
<TD width=“30%”><DIV align=“right”>
<B>Name:</B>
</DIV>
</TD>
<TD width=“75%”>
<input type=“text” name=“name” size=“12”>
</TD>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD><DIV align=“right”><B>Email:</B></DIV>
</TD>
<TD>
<input type=“text” name=“email” size=“12”>
</TD>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD><DIV align=“right”>
<B>Comment:</B>
</DIV>
</TD>
<TD><TEXTAREA name=“comment” cols=“30” wrap=“virtual” rows=“4”>
</TEXTAREA>
</TD></TR>
<TR>
<TD>&nbsp;</TD>
<TD>
<input type=“submit” name=“submit” value=“Submit”>
<input type=“reset” name=“reset” value=“Reset”>
</TD></TR>
</table>
</form>

Both of these generic HTML email forms can be customized to suit your needs. They both work similarly. You must change the “mail:to” email address to your email address. You can rename the form components, and you can add new components by following the same examples.

If working with HTML proves too difficult for you, there are many free HTML form generators online. These generators allow you to specify the names of the fields you require in your form and then by clicking a “generate” button, it will give you the HTML code. All you have to do then is copy and paste it into the code for your webpage.

There are also many software packages you can buy that are specifically made for generating HTML email forms. A few examples include Form Mail Hosting, Simfatic Solutions, and FormMail.
