Simple form script test doesn't send email...

Recommended Posts


I'm a jobless person who accidentally got a webdesign job with an employment agency. I kinda said that I would try to provide them with a free form instead of them having to pay someone like www.logiforms.com

I'm completely new to PHP, but managed to install a local server and create these files:


I kept getting errors when trying to run the script locally, so I uploaded to:

[a href=\"http://www.smartrecruituk.com/form.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.smartrecruituk.com/form.php[/a]

It's just a test form. I uploaded it to the HTDOCS directory. There was a CGI directory but I think that this server is PHP enabled... hopefully.

I tried the script on the server and it successfully took me to the thankyou.html page but I never received an email.

I'm not sure why this script doesn't work and I have been unable to find a free web host that supports PHP and SMTP...

please help!!!!
