Am a total idiot/ novice at php. I was tring to get a very basic guestbook for my local NGO/ interest group set up and thought I had it. Everything works except that the form data, the most important part, never comes out in the e-mail at the other end. Can someone help? Thanks.

I have the following form html on a web-page:

<form action="sendmail.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="input">
<h3><font color="#003366" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">If you have any comments, news or ideas please take the time to fill out this form.</font></h3>
<p><font color="#003366" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Name:<br>
<input type="text" name="name"
value="yourname" size="20">
<input type="text" name="mail"
value="yourmail" size="20">
<input type="text" name="comment"
value="yourcomment" size="40">
<p> <font color="#003366" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><br>
I am interested in taking out a membership, please send me some more details:
<input type="checkbox" name="InterestedinMembership">
</font> </p>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">

The php file is coded thus:

$name = $_REQUEST['name'] ;
$mail = $_REQUEST['mail'] ;
$comment = $_REQUEST['comment'] ;
$InterestedinMembership = $_REQUEST['InterestedinMembership'] ;

mail( "me@myorg.com", "Feedback Form Results",
$message, "From: $mail" );
header( "Location: http://www.myorg.com...m/thankyou.htm" );

Any ideas? Am I missing the obvious?

Change $_REQUEST to $_POST
