Webpage PHP request form does not work ><. Help!

Posted on 2009-04-03
Last Modified: 2013-12-13
Our company acquired the assets of another company, including their website. I am just a Network Tech, but no idea about PHP programming. All I know is, the form doesnt work as intended. Instead of sending the requested customer information to an email, after the person hits the "Request" button, all they get is a php form to save or open. Seems is broken.

I changed the companies email address and name in the code below, everything else is the same. Any CoderGods available to grace this post with their god-like programming powers? Have a happy friday!

# You can use this script to submit your forms or to receive orders by email.
$MailToAddress = ""; // your email address.
$redirectURL = "thankyou.html"; // the URL of the thank you page.
$MailSubject = "SomeCompanyName"; // the subject of the email
# copyright 2005 =================================================================================================
# If you are asking for a name and an email address in your form, you can name the input fields "name" and "email".
# If you do this, the message will apear to come from that email address and you can simply click the reply button to answer it.
# To block an IP, simply add it to the blockip.txt text file.
# If you have a multiple selection box or multiple checkboxes, you MUST name the multiple list box or checkbox as "name[]" instead of just "name" 
# you must also add "multiple" at the end of the tag like this: <select name="myselectname[]" multiple> 
# you have to do the same with checkboxes
