As far as I know there is no way to send mail using HTML only. I believe you can launch the default mail program but not sure if you can fill in anything other than the email address. Hopefully someone else on here knows the secret but I am pretty sure it can't be done with only HTML.

Sorry friend.

thanks for the reply

It will if its your your address in the "RECIPIENT" variable
z could have written

<?php
  $recipient = 'abc@gmail.com'; // configurable
  $subject='Enquiry Form Records'; //configurable

you get used to it
