Help with php mail function

I have the script below that is two pages
 <style type="text/css">
.titleA {font-size: 14px; font-weight:bold; color:#000066;}
.titleB {font-size: 11px; font-weight:bold; color:#000066;}
.styletitle {font-size: 11px; text-align: left; font-weight:bold; color:#000066;}
   <form method="post" action="recieved">
<table width="200" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0">
    <th scope="row" span class="styletitle">Name:</th>
    <td><input type="text" size="27" name="name" value="<?php print $_GET['name']; ?>"/></td>
    <th scope="row" span class="styletitle">E-Mail Address:</th>
    <td><input type="text" size="27" name="email" value="<?php print $_GET['email'];?>"  /></td>
    <th scope="row" span class="styletitle">Message:</th>
    <td><textarea name="message" cols=21 rows=7 value="<?php print $_GET['message'];?>" /></textarea></td>
    <th scope="row" span class="styletitle">&nbsp;</th>
    <td style="float:right"><input type="submit" value="send" /></td>
------- recieved.php  
echo"<p>Thank you, <b>".$_POST["name"]."</b>, for your message!</p>";
echo"<p>Your e-mail address is: <b>".$_POST["email"]."</b>.</p>";
echo"<p>Your message was:<br/>";
echo $_POST["message"]."</p>";
//start building the mail string
$msg = "Name:  ".$_POST["name"]."\n";
$msg = "E-mail: ".$_POST["email"]."\n";
//set up mail
$recipient = "customerservice@bayparkcapital.com";
$subject = "Form Submission Results";
$mailheaders = "From: BayParkCapital.com";
$mailheaders .= "Reply-To: " .$_POST["email"];
//send the mail
mail($recipient, $subject, $msg, $mailheaders);

I am using php include with contact.php on the index page


When an email is submitted I would like the index page to refresh, and the message from recieved to appear above the Contact input fields.(the "box/table" will automatically stretch to fit additional contect)

The scripts work seperatly if they are not included - check bayparkcapital.com/contact.php

Thanks for the help

try replacing the $_GET with $_REQUEST for contact.php so both $_GET and $_POST are used regardingless of the submission type of the form

I have no idea why, is this some default?
