Server-side scripting can easily do what you want.

On the client side, a FORM cannot have more than one ACTION=.

One workaround (there are others) is to separate the steps. At the end of the validation routine this

var mailto_string = 'mailto:'+your_email+'?subject='+your_subject+'&body='+your_choice_of_fields;

    var eml = window.open(mailto_string,'emlWin'); 
    if (eml && eml.open && !eml.closed) eml.close(); 
    location.href='http://www.google.com'

will open a new window and immediately close it (leaving the the user's email program of choice [assuming that there is one] with the values you provided already plugged into a message and waiting for the user to review and/or edit and hit send. Meanwhile the desired URL opens in the browser.

I have realted problem. I need to open a document on click of button. I used window.open(). it does not work for IE6 only. So what alternative method I can use to resolve this issue.
I have tried window.location but in this case I can not attache form bean. so my app gives error.

You have an entirely different problem.
And you have already started another thread for it.
