PHP mail - probably easy fix?

Hi,

 

I am very new to php, and have a contact form on my website (which works!).

 

However, when I receive the email, there is no email subject in the email header. I can see them email content fine, and the senders name, but no email Title.

 

Could somebody possible take a look at the code and see if they spot anything?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

This is my index.html form code

 

	<form id="ajax-contact-form" action="javascript:alert('success!');">
				<fieldset class="info_fieldset">
					<div id="note"></div>
					<div id="fields">
						<label>Name :</label><input class="textbox" type="text" name="name" value="" /><br />
						<label>E-Mail :</label><input class="textbox" type="text" name="email" value="" /><br />
						<label>Message :</label>
						<textarea class="textbox2" name="message" rows="5" cols="25"></textarea>
						<label> </label><input class="button" type="image" src="images/sendNew.png" id="submit" value="Send Message" />	
					</div>
				</fieldset>
	</form>

 

 

This is my contact.php code...

 

<?php

include 'config.php';

error_reporting (E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);

$post = (!empty($_POST)) ? true : false;

if($post)
{
include 'functions.php';

$name = stripslashes($_POST['name']);
$email = trim($_POST['email']);
$message = stripslashes($_POST['message']);


$error = '';

// Check name

if(!$name)
{
$error .= 'I think you forget to enter your name.<br />';
}

// Check email

if(!$email)
{
$error .= 'I think you forget to enter your e-mail id.<br />';
}

if($email && !ValidateEmail($email))
{
$error .= 'Invalid E-mail id !!!<br />';
}



if(!$error)
{
$mail = mail(WEBMASTER_EMAIL, $subject, $message,
     "From: ".$name." <".$email.">\r\n"
    ."Reply-To: ".$email."\r\n"
    ."X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());


if($mail)
{
echo 'OK';
}

}
else
{
echo '<div class="notification_error">'.$error.'</div>';
}

}
?>

 

Finally this is my config.php code..

 

<?php
// To
define("WEBMASTER_EMAIL", 'xxxxxx@xxxxxx.com');
?>

 

note - I have a contact.php, config.php, functions.php and feedback.php on my webserver, I also have a few javascript files which I think are related to this form - sorry to sound really confusing but I downloaded this form with a template.

 

Like I said, the contact form works fine, just no subject when I get the email.

 

Is it something to do with $headers??

 

thanks again.

from your scripts, $subject variable is not set.

 

try changing this

contact.php

$mail = mail(WEBMASTER_EMAIL, $subject, $message,
     "From: ".$name." <".$email.">\r\n"
    ."Reply-To: ".$email."\r\n"
    ."X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());

to

$subject = "your subject";
$mail = mail(WEBMASTER_EMAIL, $subject, $message,
     "From: ".$name." <".$email.">\r\n"
    ."Reply-To: ".$email."\r\n"
    ."X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());

That worked!!

 

Really, thank you very much :)

 

I was having real trouble with that and couldn't find an answer anywhere, first post here, and wahey!  :o

 

I am such a noob at php.

 

I know I am pushing it but can I ask one more thing, now that my email sends fine with a subject title, name of sender, and message content.. How do I get all of this information in my email when I open it, eg:

 

 

Subject : Hello

 

From: Joe Bloggs

 

Message: Hi this is my message to you

 

I have all the necessary info, just would like it all in the one place - although not THAT important!

 

Thanks again!!!

Sorry went a bit AWOL...

 

try this...

 

<?php

include 'config.php';

error_reporting (E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);

$post = (!empty($_POST)) ? true : false;

if($post)
{
include 'functions.php';

$name = stripslashes($_POST['name']);
$email = trim($_POST['email']);
$message = stripslashes($_POST['message']);


$error = '';

// Check name

if(!$name)
{
$error .= 'I think you forget to enter your name.<br />';
}

// Check email

if(!$email)
{
$error .= 'I think you forget to enter your e-mail id.<br />';
}

if($email && !ValidateEmail($email))
{
$error .= 'Invalid E-mail id !!!<br />';
}



if(!$error)
{
$subject = "your subject";
$messageform = stripslashes($_POST['message']);
$message = "Subject: " . $subject . "\n\nFrom: " . $name . "\n\nMessage: " . $messageform;
$mail = mail(WEBMASTER_EMAIL, $subject, $message,
     "From: ".$name." <".$email.">\r\n"
    ."Reply-To: ".$email."\r\n"
    ."X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());


if($mail)
{
echo 'OK';
}

}
else
{
echo '<div class="notification_error">'.$error.'</div>';
}

}
?>

thanks - this also works a treat!!

 

now when I receive an email I get;

 

Subject: xxxx

 

From: xxxxxx

 

Message: xxxxxx

 

--

 

However I don't get a 'Reply to:' field, is this missing?  :confused:

 

I just noticed that on my actual form, if I don't enter an email address, the form validates and produces the 'I think you forget to enter your e-mail id.' But if I enter an incorrect email (like .bom or .cpm etc) the email form just 'shakes' a bit but produces no error.  :shrug:

 

Could this be linked?

 

thanks :)
