Hey EXPERTS!

Why doesn't this PHP work?  

I'll post 2 different PHP submission forms on the code part...  the TOP one is the new PHP that I took from my other website submission form and altered it for a new one.

The BOTTOM one is the working completely fine PHP form from my other website.

The problem with the TOP one is that when I hit submit, it doesn't show the email address as who it's from... also for some emails like on a godaddy.com server email... they don't even get it... if I submit from my other website to a godaddy.com server email it works just fine.

THANKS!
DJM

Check and make sure your form field names matches what you have in the $_POST.

For example the different between the bottom and top is that the top script is $_POST['email'] while the bottom is $_POST['emailaddress'], and that is a common mistake that even I make.
