header:Location not working

What could be the reason the header:Location... below is not redirecting the browser?:

<?php

$message = "Hello";
if (!mail('weikelbob@aol.com','From Listen Website',$message)) die('Mail Failed!');

I don't see a problem with the header() syntax.  What browser are you testing this with?  Have you tried a different one?
TomeeboyCommented:
In your actual script, you should also make sure there is no other output before the header is sent, this could even include blank spaces.

From the PHP manual:

"Remember that header() must be called before any actual output is sent, either by normal HTML tags, blank lines in a file, or from PHP. It is a very common error to read code with include(), or require(), functions, or another file access function, and have spaces or empty lines that are output before header() is called. The same problem exists when using a single PHP/HTML file."

I tested your form.. it doesn't appear to be a browser issue.  However, it does look like there is a possibly a blank line being output before your header function is called.  Make sure there is no blank space before your PHP tags in handler.php, I suspect there is.
TomeeboyCommented:
The die couldn't be his problem, as it would be outputting "Mail Failed!" if it were being called.

Tomeeboy hit it right on the nose. There was a blank space at the top of my script. That simple!

Thanks!.
