I recently have made a form in php that sends via email the content of it (to the asigned email). Now, I want to change this to insert the content in a mysql database with php, and I´m not sure the way that I must to do. I think, first I must create a table in my mysql database? Second,  this code must change? how?
e.g. $body .= "Deaprture: " . $_POST["port"] . "\r\n"

Hi juanico,
The previous link will show you how to connect database and how to insert data into record

Now what you will have to do is :

if you follow the previous link , bellow line :

mysql_query("INSERT INTO person (FirstName, LastName, Age)
VALUES ('Peter', 'Griffin', '35')");

where the value is inputted statically
but in your case value would inputed dynamically

Like in the mail proramm, you have variables such as ( as you said in your pose)
$body .= "Deaprture: " . $_POST["port"] . "\r\n"

Now here  ,instead of peter use $body
which would be like this

mysql_query("INSERT INTO emailtable (emailaddress,subject, body)
VALUES ($emailaddress,$subject,$body)");

thats it, job done. and  you will have to write this insert statement, in Submit button just after sending the email
