I am editing a form in PHP that I need to use to send out information collected in a web form, the form I am adapting would send information to a database and email out a message to view the information submitted, what I need to do is collect this information and have it sent out in an email, the email part is below however when I added fields from the form like $submitterSurnamefield = "Surname: $submitterSurnamefield"; I it fails to submit.

I am new to PHP so any help on this would be great

$email_from = "me<me@me.com>";

$to = "me@me.com";

$header = "From: $email_from\n";

$header .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";

$header .= "Content-Type: text/html;";

$subject = "mailtest- Request for information";

$submitterSurnamefield = "Surname: $submitterSurnamefield";

$body = "Hi.<br><br>A website user has submitted a request for information.<br><br>Please see the information below<br><br> Thanks.";

mail($to, $subject, $body, $submitterSurnamefield, $header);

Try this, I'm not sure if it works.
$submitterSurnamefield = "Surname: $submitterSurnamefield";
$submitterSurnamefield = "Surname: " . $submitterSurnamefield;


To be a coder, you must learn how to think and not to give up so easily.
