The use of mailto is discouraged since it only works when the client has a mail application configured in his computer.

I would recommend using a PHP script to process your form and let it use your server's mail features to send the processed form

Let me know if you want a simple example on how to process a form using PHP.

See ya'

yes, if you still want to send an email to your address then you will need to run a server side mail option. your server should be compatible.

this is a php example:
mail('caffeinated@example.com', 'My Subject', $message);

from http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php
