Looking For PHP Mail Help...

Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone. My name is Rob. I am working on some templates for a website business I hope to get off the ground one day catering to a specific profession of people who dont know a thing about making web pages.

I know some, but not much PHP at all.

[I am making a contact form and an appointment scheduling form. The appointment form i am putting aside for now until I can figure out how to make a form that, when submitted by a trusted visitor, will place the desired appointment in a doctors schedule for the doctor. Obviously, the doc would need to have his or her appointment book on a server or something, but all that stuff is beyond me for now...]

Right now I am just trying to work out a PHP script for having a form submitted via HTML email. It is a questions/ comments type of form, pretty standard. The only thing special about it at all is a checkbox which will enable/disable a field using javascript.

I would like that form to submit to the doctors email in HTML format so that I can design a user-friendly email template for the doctor to recieve his/her questions. I would make the email tempalte, I just dont know specifically how to get the email from the SUBMIT button to the DOCTORS EMAIL via PHP. For example, how would I go about specifying a template to place the form content into?

if someone can whip up a PHP script, with directions for me to work on it if needed, which allows me to add an HTML template to the forms information as it heads out, then I will pay them via PayPal $20 or more (up to $50) dollars, depending on how good it seems and if it works on all browsers without errors, etc, and how well it is explained to me. I would like to avoid javascript. MySql is OK, but I would need directions on that, too.

I know CSS and HTML very much, but thats about it.

idono if I was too wordy, or if this type of request (script for $$$) is OK in this forum. but to sum it up:
1) php form email script
2) want form sent via HTML email with a template (ill design the template, but how to get template in email?)
3) directions with the script

If anyone can help me and would like to take up the challenge, please leave a post here or email me at iamrobromano@coldmail.com (replace cold with HOT) ;-)

i will try to check back to this thread often to asnwer questions and stuff.

good place to start:

as for using HTML instead of plain text email -- just create an HTML email message you like, and copy it verbatum into the "message" area of the php mail() command. You can go back in and add your php in the key places where the data changes.
