best not to use mailto at all, for various reasons.
you'll need to use a server side language, such as php, to handle the form data. you can check what language to use with your host, but php will more than likely that they use.
if you've not used php before, try googling a php tutorial, or buying a good php book.
First check with your host to see which server-side programming languages
and/or formmailer scripts they support. Some hosts (GoDaddy shared hosting
for example) may limit you to using only their scripts which you must
activate via your account's admin panel.
If your server supports PHP and you can use 3rd party scripts, I highly
recommend this one from DB Masters. It hides your address from prying eye
email harvesters and has some pretty nifty spam control methods built in.
Free to use if you credit the author; $20 if you don't.
Best of luck on your project,
