Hi, I've got an html form which basically sends output to a php script, which emails it  like so :
<form action="send.php" method="post" name="quoteform" id="quoteform">

and this is send.php
<?php
$to = "me@abc.com"; // E-mail address to send mail to.
$subject = "Online Quote Form"; //Subject of the e-mail
$message = "Quote request received:
Name: $ctcName
Tel: $ctcTel
E-mail address: $ctcEmail;

mail($to, $subject, $message, "From: $name <$ctcEmail>\nX-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());
mail($cc, $subject, $message, "From: $name <$ctcEmail>\nX-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion());
echo "redirecting..please wait";
sleep(8);    //slight pause to display message above
header("Location: http://www.google.com/"); /* Redirect browser */
exit;
?>

Well, I get the following error:
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/mydomain/public_html/send.php:2) in /home/mydomain/public_html/send.php on line 30

I figured that prob is because  header can only be used as the first statement in a script yes? So is there a way I can redirect after displaying a message like 'thank you' for a few seconds?

Thanks...

You can attach this script to your script

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<script>  
function redirect()
{
 window.location.href='http://www.google.com';
}
</script>
</HEAD>

<BODY onload="setTimeout('redirect()', 5000)">
Thank you..
