Quick Email Script Question!

Recommended Posts

Hi, Im a bit of a newb with PHP so Im hoping you guys can help....

This script sends an email to my address with the users already entered variables. I use this to basically keep record.

My script is as follows:
[code]$msg="\n".date("m/d/Y")."\n".date("h/i/A")."\n".$_POST['first_name']." ".$_POST['last_name']."\n".$_POST['payer_email']."\n".$_POST['custom'];
        mail("email@gmail.com",date("m/d/Y")",$msg,"from: email@gmail.com");[/code]

Now as you can see in the last line, the subject right now just posts the date, so the message's subject would read "04/11/06", I want the subject to be "Purchase 04/11/06"

How can I do this? No matter how I enter it, I get an error.

Thanks in advanced.

I am not in a place where i can test it but try this.

[code]$msg="\n".date("m/d/Y")."\n".date("h/i/A")."\n".$_POST['first_name']." ".$_POST['last_name']."\n".$_POST['payer_email']."\n".$_POST['custom'];
$date = date('m/d/Y');
        mail("email@gmail.com","Purchased $date","$msg","from: email@gmail.com");[/code]

Ive tried that, I get a parse error. Even Purchase $date("m/d/Y") does the same.

Any other ideas? Anyone? Thanks in advanced.

Got it, it should have been: "Purchase " . date("m/d/Y")

Thanks.
