PHP mail form for website - ability to email sender

Posted on 2009-04-15

Attached is the code for a PHP mail form that I am currently running. What I want to do I believe is pretty simple I just can't figure it out. I currently have an email address that these forms are sent to. I have a spot in the form for the person submitting the work order to type in their address. This address is the address that the email comes from so that we can reply to them. I want the form to pull that address and send it there as well. So basically I want the form sent to the address in the mailto and whatever is typed into $email.
<?
 
$mailto = 'email@email.com' ;
$subject = "Workorder Request - Wyandotte" ;
$formurl = "http://www.websiteform.com" ;
$errorurl = "http://www.websiteform.com/erremail.html" ;
$thankyouurl = "http://www.websiteform.com/tyemail.html" ;
$uself = 0;
$headersep = (!isset( $uself ) || ($uself == 0)) ? "\r\n" : "\n" ;
$name = $_POST['name'] ;
$email = $_POST['email'] ;
$username = $_POST['username'] ;
$department = $_POST['department'] ;
$problem = $_POST['problem'] ;
$priority = $_POST['priority'] ;
$reboot = $_POST['reboot'] ;
$comments = $_POST['comments'] ;
$http_referrer = getenv( "HTTP_REFERER" );
if (!isset($_POST['email'])) {
	header( "Location: $formurl" );
	exit ;
}
if (empty($name) || empty($email) || empty($username) || empty($comments)) {
   header( "Location: $errorurl" );
   exit ;
}
if ( ereg( "[\r\n]", $name ) || ereg( "[\r\n]", $email ) ) {
	header( "Location: $errorurl" );
	exit ;
}
if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {
	$comments = stripslashes( $comments );
}
$messageproper =
	"Name of sender: $name\n\n" .
	"Email of sender: $email\n\n" .
	"Name of user with problem: $username\n\n" .
	"Department: $department\n\n" .
	"Problem: $problem\n\n" .
	"Priority Level: $priority\n\n" .
	"Has the user rebooted their computer?: $reboot\n\n" .
	"------------------------- PROBLEMS -------------------------\n\n" .
	$comments .
	"\n\n------------------------------------------------------------\n" ;
mail($mailto, $subject, $messageproper,
	"From: \"$name\" <$email>" . $headersep . "Reply-To: \"$name\" <$email>" . $headersep . "X-Mailer: chfeedback.php 2.07" );
header( "Location: $thankyouurl" );
exit ;
?>

Add your recipients to a variable $to, seperated by a comma, and use that in your send to field.

 
$to = $mailto.','. $email;        
mail($to, $subject, $messageproper,
