>>>Can the mailto & submit buttons be combined with an a href tag to take the visitor to the download page after it has sent the mailto?
>>Don't use tricks to get Email addresses, Make sure they know you are going to get it when they click on any button.
>Not trying to use tricks - the submit button specifically notifies the visitor that they are subscribing to a newsletter - The page I want to take them to is a download page for the program they are enrolling in.
p.s. - I would appreciate the person who applied to my original post - Darryl - reading through the documents at this site. This is where I found the mailto: code being used with the submit button to capture addresses. If he has a complaint, it would be better addressed to the webmaster at this site.
In the meantime, for those of yo who know what you're doing, is there an answer to the original question - can the submit button be used to both effect a mailto: response and direct the visitor to another page?

Thanks, gnarly
