PHP to send email listing from field in email

Hello -

I have a small php file that will send email from Flash. I can get the name, address, city, etc to work but it fails to show in the 'from' feild of the email client when email arrives (in fact the email show 'nobody' in the from field).

Here is a copy:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Welcome to to my site</TITLE>
<BODY>
<?php

$TextVariable = '&results=';
$response = 'Data Sent. Thank You...';

echo $TextVariable;
echo $response;
$return = "From: $name\r\n Reply-To: $email\r\n";


mail ("myemail@anywhre.com", "On Line Service Form Response", "

Good day -

You have a new entry:

Name:          $name          E-mail:     $email

Home phone:      $home
Work phone:      $work
Cell:           $cell

Address1:      $address1
Address2:      $address2
City:           $city
Zip:           $zip

Comments:    

$comments

Sent From : $REMOTE_ADDR"

$return

);

?>

What's wrong?

Thanks

Jim

Try adding a comma before return. To add the From you need the argument for addition headers. Without the comma it's adding it to the message.

Sent From : $REMOTE_ADDR",$return);

No Problem. It the little things that kill us and the most fustrating. It's amazing how a little comma can effect a script.
