Hi. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what is wrong with my mail form. Its supposed to have two boxes (URL + Description) and a submit button. Then i'm meant to receive the mail telling me what they have entered. The only problem is (i think) that its hosted on a free hoster - php0h.com, beacuse my proper hoster (NTL) doesn't support PHP. Does the email I type in have to be on the same domain name thing as where the script is? e.g if my address was www.cat.com my email would have to be anythinghere@cat.com? cause if this is true im stuffed, cause php0h doesn't offer free email services. If there are any other email form restrictions or stuff i need to know i'd be greatfull. heres my html code and php script if it will help:

<form method="POST" action="http://everythingred.php1h.com/scripts/contact.php">
Fields marked (*) are required

<p>LinkURL:<br>
<input type="text" name="LinkURL">
<p>Description:<br>
<textarea name="Description"></textarea>
<p><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
<p>

and the php script (hosted somwhere else)

<?php
// Website Contact Form Generator 
// http://www.tele-pro.co.uk/scripts/contact_form/ 
// This script is free to use as long as you  
// retain the credit link  

// get posted data into local variables
$EmailFrom = "A Visitor";
$EmailTo = "myemail@ntlworld.com";
$Subject = "Submitted Link";
$LinkURL = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['LinkURL'])); 
$Description = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['Description'])); 

// validation
$validationOK=true;
if (!$validationOK) {
  print "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=error.htm\">";
  exit;
}

// prepare email body text
$Body = "";
$Body .= "LinkURL: ";
$Body .= $LinkURL;
$Body .= "\n";
$Body .= "Description: ";
$Body .= $Description;
$Body .= "\n";

// send email 
$success = mail($EmailTo, $Subject, $Body, "From: <$EmailFrom>");

// redirect to success page 
if ($success){
  print "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=ok.htm\">";
}
else{
  print "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=error.htm\">";
}
?>


PLEASE help i've been stuck on this for ages.

Your server configuration may be the cause. Some hosts won't allow you to change the headers of the message (because of spam) and require you to use an existing email account.
