Are you saying you get e-mails when the form is used?
But you want to know if the site stores the comments so you can look at all of them at one time?

If that is the case, most contact forms just send the email out and do not store the comments.

Without seeing the code of the mailer, I can't say what it is doing (right or wrong).

I assume you are using a CMS, which one?

<div style="text-align: center;"><a href="mailto:leigh@divebuddha.x10hosting.com"><span style="font-size: large;">leigh@divebuddha.x10hosting.com</span></a><br /><br /></div>
<br /><br />
<div>
<div style="text-align: center;">{%contact%}<br /></div>
<br /><br /><br /></div>
</div>

ok above is the code from the page and below is the link to the actual page

i do have a link to my e-mail above the contact form

maybe looking at the page will be the easiest option

Errr.... Thats not really the way you want to make a contact form...

EDIT:
We would need to see your php page which processes the form data.

I'm wondering what this is for:
Code:
<div style="text-align: center;">{%contact%}<br /></div>

I've seen a sort of it used before in like forums when editing templates to place different bits.
but in this case,
where did you get your script from. (tutorial, web, ...)

and also I don't see any form, I just see the link. So im not sure what you mean cyclop when you need to see the PHP page?

Using <a href="mailto:your_email@x10hosting.com"> is very easy, but many times it will not work. All you are doing is giving away your email address and hopping for the best.

If you want some more control over what’s going on, you will have to do some programming. It’s not very hard, and you will learn a lot.

Google "php contact form" and go thru the tutorials.

You can get started with this one:l http://www.phpeasystep.com/phptu/8.html

Then you can go to this one:
http://www.kirupa.com/web/php_contact_form.htm

And when you are ready for real, you can try this one
