try something more like the below

else
{
    $from        = "From: $name<$email>\r\nReturn-path: $email";
    $subject    = "Form Submission";
    $to            = "youremail@yahoo.com";
    $message    = "you likely will want to loop through your $_POST variables here";
    
    mail($to, $subject, $message);
    
    echo"
        <div class=\"contactform\">
            Thank you for contacting us, please wait for our reply!
        </div>
    ";
}

there is also an option fourth parameter in the mail() function.  preferable to use it well if you dont want your emails being dropped in spam folders, blocked, etc.

For instance how would I put this into $message?

<?php
  $aMeat = $_POST['tMeat'];
  if(empty($aMeat)) 
  {
    echo("You didn't select any meats.");
  } 
  else
  {
    $N = count($aMeat);
 
    echo("You ordered $N meat(s): ");
    for($i=0; $i < $N; $i++)
    {
      echo($aMeat[$i] . " - ").;
    }
  }
?>

Problem is you're echoing the values, which will just go out to the browser. You want to add it to a string.

$aMeat = $_POST['tMeat'];
$message = '';
if(empty($aMeat)) 
{
   $message = "You didn't select any meats.";
} 
else
{
    $N = count($aMeat);
 
    $message = "You ordered $N meat(s): ";
    for($i=0; $i < $N; $i++)
    {
      //add this meat to the end of the $message string (string concatenation)
      $message .= $aMeat[$i] . " - ";
    }
}

alternatively, since $aMeat is an array, you can use implode() on it, like

$N = count($aMeat);
$message = "You ordered $N meat(s): " . implode(', ', $aMeat);

Message would now be something like:

You ordered 1 meat(s): pork

or if there were more than one selected:

You ordered 3 meat(s): pork, beef, chicken

I need all of the information to go into the browser as well.  I have it all set up to echo to the browser and it works perfectly, now I just need to send all of the different arrays in an e-mail message.  How do I echo them to the browser and add them to my message? Also, I am wanting to add more than just meats, I have other variables similar to $aMeat that I want to add in the message, is that possible this way?

$name = $_POST['name'];
$email = $_POST['email'];

$to = "youremail@yahoo.com";
$subject = "submission data";

$fields             = array();
$fields["Name"]     = $name;
$fields["Email"]     = $email;

$message = "We have received the following information from a submission:\n\n";
foreach($fields as $a => $b)
{ $message .= sprintf("%30s: %s\n",$a,$b); }

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