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

so...what do you mean by it "can't" send the mail? are you getting an error message of some kind? are you getting your "Thank you for your feedback. The following message was sent:" but it wasn't sent? please provide as much details as possible.

and by the way:
$realname = strip_tags($realname);
$email = strip_tags($email);
$feedback = strip_tags($feedback);
unless register_globals is set to ON in your php.ini this won't work. you need to do this:
$realname = strip_tags($_POST['realname']);
$email = strip_tags($_POST['email']);
$feedback = strip_tags($_POST['feedback']);

and it should be $_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] unless register_globals is set to ON, as well.  but even if it IS set to ON, you shouldn't use your variables as you are using them. you should be using $_POST and $_SERVER for security reasons.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
