Php mailing

Recommended Posts

I looked up some code for a mailing page, so people can instant mail to the contact mail of the website, but it does not really work.

so far I got
[code]<?
if ($_POST["email"]<>'') {
$ToEmail = 'harold_break@hotmail.com';
$EmailSubject = 'Contact us';
$mailheader = "From: ".$_POST["email"]."\r\n";
$mailheader .= "Reply-To: ".$_POST["email"]."\r\n";
$mailheader .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n";
$MESSAGE_BODY = "Name: ".$_POST["name"]."<br>";
$MESSAGE_BODY .= "Email: ".$_POST["email"]."<br>";
$MESSAGE_BODY .= "Comment: ".nl2br($_POST["comment"])."<br>";
mail($ToEmail, $EmailSubject, $MESSAGE_BODY, $mailheader) or die ("Failure");
?>
Your message was sent
<? } else { ?>
<form action="contactus.php" method="post">
<table width="400" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td width="29%" class="bodytext">Your name:</td>
<td width="71%"><input name="name" type="text" id="name" size="32"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="bodytext">Email address:</td>
<td><input name="email" type="text" id="email" size="32"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="bodytext">Comment:</td>
<td><textarea name="comment" cols="45" rows="6" id="comment" class="bodytext"></textarea></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="bodytext">&nbsp;</td>
<td align="left" valign="top"><input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Send"></td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>
<? }; ?>[/code]

I can send the mails, but they do not arrive into the mail, is there something I am doing wrong?

thanks for your time

The reason may be this portion of the code.

[code=php:0]
$mailheader = "From: ".$_POST["email"]."\r\n";
[/code]

Change this to an email address that is known to the server ..i.e. you @yourdomain.com

I would place the [code=php:0]$_POST['email'][/code] in the message body. Like this.

[code=php:0]
$MESSAGE_BODY .= $_POST['email'] . "<br />";
[/code]

Give it a try. I would be willing to bet that this will fix your problem.

Hope this helps,
Tom

Ok I just looked at the script you already have the users email in the message body. So disregard that. Now if you do not have an email address with the mail server..? Maybe your host has the fake mail enabled. So try [code=php:0]$mailheader = "From: noreply@yourdomain.com\r\n";[/code]

Give that a shot.

Good luck,
Tom

I still have not figured it out, I asked a few other people I whom know a bit of PhP as well, but they didn't have a clue either, anymore suggestions are welcome =).
