mailto: by default opens up the local system's email client. To be able to click on Submit and it be sent off to you directly, you need a server side script to send the message for you. This also requires you to have server a server with access to to a mail server.

You can find tons of scripts like this for almost any server side language on google, mostly free as well. ;)
