[!--PHP-Head--][div class=\'phptop\']PHP[/div][div class=\'phpmain\'][!--PHP-EHead--]

 

$to = $_POST[\'email\'];[/span][!--PHP-Foot--][/div][!--PHP-EFoot--]

 

Then just call the mail() function to send the mail to the address that's entered in the form. This assumes the text box is called "email", but you could call it whatever you want.

like lexnaturalis said, you've got to use the mail() function to get the mail to send. he was simply showing you how to pull the address to use in the mail function. click on the function above to view the php manual page corresponding to this great function.

 

good luck!

that's going to be the easiest way... let me see if i can break it down for you:

[!--PHP-Head--][div class=\'phptop\']PHP[/div][div class=\'phpmain\'][!--PHP-EHead--]

[span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]<?php

$to [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= [/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\'you@yourdomain.com\'[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]; [/span][span style=\"color:#FF8000\"]// the recipient of the email

[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$subject [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= [/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\'Some Subject\'[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]; [/span][span style=\"color:#FF8000\"]// whatever you want to appear in the subject line

[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$message [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= \'[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]Text for message goes here.\"; // message text

mail($to, $subject, $message);

?>

[/span]

[/span][!--PHP-Foot--][/div][!--PHP-EFoot--]

 

that's all there is to it! you have lots of additional "optional" settings that you don't need to worry about at this stage, but to get it to work, all you have to do is provide a To: address, subject, and message.

 

hope this helps some.

 

good luck!

ok, here is the full code for a basic contact form page:

[!--PHP-Head--][div class=\'phptop\']PHP[/div][div class=\'phpmain\'][!--PHP-EHead--]

[span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]<?php

[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]if (isset([/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$_POST[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"][[/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\'submit\'[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]])) {

  [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$to [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= [/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\'you@yourdomain.com\'[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]; [/span][span style=\"color:#FF8000\"]// replace your address here

  [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$subject [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$_POST[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"][[/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\'subject\'[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]];

  [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$message [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$_POST[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"][[/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\'message\'[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]];

  if ([/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]mail[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]([/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$to[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"], [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$subject[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"], [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$message[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"])) {

    [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$message [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= [/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\"Mail sent!\"[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"];

  } else {

    [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$message [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= [/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\"Couldn\'t send mail!\"[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"];

  }

}

 

echo (isset([/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$message[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"])) ? [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$message [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]: [/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\'\'[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"];

[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]?>

[/span]

<form name=\'email\' method=\'post\' action=\'\'>

Subject: <input type=\'text\' name=\'subject\' /><br />

Message: <br />

<textarea name=\'message\' cols=\'60\' rows=\'20\'></textarea><br />

<input type=\'submit\' name=\'submit\' value=\'Send It\' />

</form>

[/span][!--PHP-Foot--][/div][!--PHP-EFoot--]

 

this saved with a ".php" extension should allow you to send basic emails through the form.

 

hope this helps!

just include a text field to enter their email address into (named 'email' or something like that), then do the following:

[!--PHP-Head--][div class=\'phptop\']PHP[/div][div class=\'phpmain\'][!--PHP-EHead--]

[span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]<?php

[/span][span style=\"color:#FF8000\"]// change this line:

[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$to [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= [/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\'you@yourdomain.com\'[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"];

[/span][span style=\"color:#FF8000\"]// to:

[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$to [/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]= [/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]$_POST[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"][[/span][span style=\"color:#DD0000\"]\'email\'[/span][span style=\"color:#007700\"]];

[/span][span style=\"color:#0000BB\"]?>

[/span]

[/span][!--PHP-Foot--][/div][!--PHP-EFoot--]

 

that's it.
