Email form

Recommended Posts

I have an HTML form that is being used as a Contat Us form. I want it to email me the data. Can someone help with how to do that with PHP?? I have it redirecting to a site that says "thanks for contacting us"....and shows the data they entered. Can I set it up so it will email the contents AND still go to this other page? Here is my form code. Thanks!

The PHP mail() function is what you are looking for [a href=\"http://ca3.php.net/manual/en/ref.mail.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://ca3.php.net/manual/en/ref.mail.php[/a]

Just integrate the mail() function in your sendfeedback.php file and it will still display the message.

I appreciate the reply, but I'm way to much of a beginner to be able to follow it. I did get this much out of the link you sent me. Am I anywhere close to where I need to be?


[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]<?php
$to = 'cameron@caminator.com, blueair23@caminator.com';
$subject = 'the subject';
$message = 'hello';
$headers = 'From: webmaster@example.com' . "\r\n" .
'Reply-To: webmaster@example.com' . "\r\n" .
'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();

mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
?>

looks good to me. Just pop that into your .php file and see if you get anything sent to your inbox.
