I put this php together to process an email form:

<?php
$to = "EMAILOMITTED";
$from = $_REQUEST['email'] ;
$name = $_REQUEST['name'] ;
$stickers = $_REQUEST['stickers'] ;
$message = "Name: " .$name."\n\nMailing Address:\n" .$_REQUEST['comments']."\n\nRequested Bumper Stickers:\n" .$stickers;
$headers = "From: $from";
$subject = "JBNEWS - Bumper Sticker Request";

$fields{"Name"} = "Name";
$fields{"Email"} = "Email";

if (!empty($to) && !empty($from) && !empty($message) && !empty($headers) && !empty($subject)) {
  $send = mail($to, $from, $subject, $message, $headers);
  if($send) {
    header("Location: emailsent.php");
    exit;
  }
}

header("Location: emailerror.php");
exit;

?>

When I fill out all the forms and submit I get the emailerror.php instead of emailsent.php! Any suggestions!?

Nor should they be...$fields{..} is meaningless.

<?php
$to = "EMAILOMITTED";
$from = $_POST['email'] ;
$name = $_POST['name'] ;
$stickers = $_POST['stickers'] ;
$message = "Name: " .$name."\n\nMailing Address:\n" .$_REQUEST['comments']."\n\nRequested Bumper Stickers:\n" .$stickers;
$headers = "From: $from";
$subject = "JBNEWS - Bumper Sticker Request";

if (!empty($to) && !empty($from) && !empty($message) && !empty($headers) && !empty($subject)) {
  $send = mail($to, $from, $subject, $message, $headers);
  if($send) {
    header("Location: emailsent.php");
    exit;
  }
}

header("Location: emailerror.php");
exit;


Try that.

write your variables to see what you are getting.

e.g. $from = $_POST['email'] ;
echo $from;

Make sure your parameters are coming in correctly,

Perhaps you should also try and include \r\n\r\n after your last header, for instance

$headers = "From: $from" . '\r\n\r\n';

I don't know if it will do anything, but worth a shot.
