Below is our existing PHP form which is emailed to our staff. I also, would like to send a confirmation email to the person submitting this form. I would like to grab the Email Field and send a short confirmation email to him/her.

I do not know much about PHP, so if anyone who can make the necessary changes to the form below, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks.
<?
 
$JobDate = strtotime($_POST['JobDate']);

if($JobDate < $newdate)

If you want to send the same confirmation email to user that is also sent to admin then find for this line in the codes:

// $headers .= 'Cc:' . $EMail . "\r\n"; // Copy to ordering person (removed per request on 7/29/08)

unComment it and chage to

// $headers .= 'Cc:' . $ContactEmail . "\r\n";

as the value for $EMail is no longer available on the codes.

Sorry .. forgot to unComment it .. OR remove the '//' sign at the beginning;

So .. it goes :

$headers .= 'Cc:' . $ContactEmail . "\r\n";

Actually I need to send a separate confirmation email to the user. Something as simple as "Thank you, we have received your request."

Ok ... try to find these codes at the bottom of your codes:

-------------------------------------------------------------------
// Create confirmation page

     $landing_page = "client/schedule_thankyou.html";
           if ($landing_page != ""){
        header("Location: http://".$_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]."/$landing_page");
    } else {
        header("Location: http://".$_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]."/");
    }
-------------------------------------------------------------------

and replace it with :
// Create confirmation page
 
$toUser		  = $ContactEmail;
$subjectUser  = 'Your Request Confirmation';							 // Your eMail subject to user
$messageUser  = 'Thank you, we have received your request.';			 // Your eMail message to user
$headersUser  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headersUser .= 'content-type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n"; // Sending plain text email to User
$headersUser .= 'From: RBweb@domain.com <domain Support>' . "\r\n";		 // Write Email Sender here
$headersUser .= 'Cc: ' . "\r\n";										 // Remove Cc
$headersUser .= 'Bcc: ' . "\r\n";										 // Remove Bcc
 
     $landing_page = "client/schedule_thankyou.html";
           if ($landing_page != ""){ 
		  mail($toUser, $subjectUser, $messageUser, $headersUser);
        header("Location: http://".$_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]."/$landing_page");
    } else {
        header("Location: http://".$_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]."/");
    }

The Confirmation emails are coming to the user now, however, the form itself is also going to the user now. To clarify, the user is getting 2 emails. 1st - the confirmation email. 2nd - the email going to:

$to  = 'rinam@domain.com' . ', '; // note the comma
$to  .= 'elenab@domain.com' . ', ';
$to  .= 'saquibr@domain.com' . ', ';
$to  .= 'nicoleh@domain.com' . ', ';
$to  .= 'yavonk@domain.com' . ', ';
$to  .= 'jennifers@domain.com';
