Simple Email Sign Up Button

Hi,
Having some confusion about how to set up an input box for people to register their email.

So all I need is this
1. an input box for the user to put their email
2.an button for them to click register
3.after the user clicks register, their email adress is sent to an email address of my choosing (please specify in your answer where i specifiy this email).
4.An auto generated message is sent to the user's email thanking them for registering their email.


Can you please provide the comeplete code that would allow me to do this in either CSS/XHTML or PHP
.
Thanks

How about:
<?PHP
 
if ( isset ( $_POST['submit'] ) )
{
 
	$user_email = $_POST['email'];
	
	$to = 'you@yourdomain.com'; // your email address here
	$subject = 'New sign up'; // change this as desired
	$message = 'A New user has signed up, email address: ' . $user_email; // change this as desired
	
	$headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
	$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";
	$headers .= 'From: no-reply@yourdomain.com' . "\r\n" . 'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();
				
	mail ( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );
	
	$to = $user_email;
	$subject = 'no-reply@yourdomain.com'; // yourdomain here
	$message = 'Thank you for signing up to yourdomain.com'; // change this as desired
	
	mail ( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );
 
}
 
?>
 
<form action="<?PHP echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post">
	<input type="text" name="email" /><input type="submit" value="sign up" />
</form>

Try the following.  If you see a message "Emails sent", check your spam filters as that is a common problem.
<?PHP
 
if ( isset ( $_POST['submit'] ) )
{
 
	$user_email = $_POST['email'];
	
	$to = 'you@yourdomain.com'; // your email address here
	$subject = 'New sign up'; // change this as desired
	$message = 'A New user has signed up, email address: ' . $user_email; // change this as desired
	
	$headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
	$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";
	$headers .= 'From: no-reply@yourdomain.com' . "\r\n" . 'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();
				
	mail ( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );
	
	$to = $user_email;
	$subject = 'no-reply@yourdomain.com'; // yourdomain here
	$message = 'Thank you for signing up to yourdomain.com'; // change this as desired
	
	mail ( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );
	
	echo 'Emails sent';
 
}
 
?>
 
<form action="<?PHP echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post">
	<input type="text" name="email" /><input type="submit" value="sign up" name="submit" />
</form>

www.djmichaelray.com is hosted at GoDaddy. GoDaddy blocks port 25. Port 3535 is available for email traffic.

Not sure how to help the poster, but hopefully that helps out another expert.

You named the submit button 'submit'.  Name it something else.

If the email is not being sent, but the form does submit, follow matthewstevenkelly's advice.  Make sure you have a server up, that it is properly configured for your host, and that you can actually send mail through it outside of the website.

The name of the submit button is only there to test for the form being sent.  It's name will not affect the functioning of the script.

Steve BinkCommented:
My apologies...the 'submit' name issue presents itself only when using javascript to submit the form.  The button should still work.

>>> it generates an error when you click on submit.

Did you find the source of this problem?
