I tried sending email messages without using the form...
fortunately there was no error but the problem was i can't see the message in my inbox..

these are the codes:
echo 'your I.P. address is: ';
echo $ip;

if($ip != '')
       echo "ip not equal!\n";
else {
                $recepient = "webmaster@domain_name.com";
                $subject = "You have Guest!";

    $contents = "Your ip is:" . $ip;
                $headers = "Reply-to: webmaster@domain_name.com\n";
                mail($recepient, $subject, $contents, "From: webmaster@domain_name.com");


I wonder what was the problem with my codes or what do you think is lacking?

Ok, just change the I.P. address with your address so it works with you....

If I understand what you are saying you comment that you cant send emails through your browser?

Some hosting companies block the ability to send emails through your browser.

You have:
                $headers = "Reply-to: webmaster@domain_name.com\n";
                mail($recepient, $subject, $contents, "From: webmaster@domain_name.com");
You create the $headers variable, but you don't use it. The "From:" header should be terminated with a new line character. You might have to include the fifth parameter on the mail() line.

               $headers = "From: webmaster@domain_name.com\n";
               $headers .= "Reply-to: webmaster@domain_name.com\n";
               $p5 = '-f webmaster@domain_name.com';
                mail($recepient, $subject, $contents, $headers,$p5);

The fifth parameter is almost always needed when sending to a Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, or AOL address.
