I have been trying for a good several hours now to get a working form on my customers site.
http://www.palletnetworkanglia.co.uk/contactus.html

Fields I require are.
Name:
Telephone:
Email Address:
Collection Post Code:
Where did you hear about us:
Message:

I have contacted Fasthosts who have given me the script below which I have very messily (Messed up). I need the form data to goto jason@userone.co.uk and the data to come from Jason@letum.co.uk.

I hope this makes sense to some one as I cant seem to get my head round php! I would like to loose the email from field.

Thanks

Jason

Try this example.  You can fill in the rest of the fields, as needed.  Hope that helps, ~Ray
<?php // RAY_form_to_mail.php

error_reporting(E_ALL);
 

// SEND MAIL FROM A FORM
 

// AVOID BECOMING AN OPEN-RELAY FOR SPAM

function clean_string($str)

{

    $str = stripslashes($str);

    $str = trim(ereg_replace(" +", " ", $str));

    $str = ereg_replace('[^ a-zA-Z0-9&+:?_\.\-]', '', $str);

return $str;

}
 

// REQUIRED VALUES ARE PREPOPULATED

$to    = "jason@userone.co.uk";

$to    = "RPaseur@NatPresCh.org";

$from  = "fjason@letum.co.uk";

$subj  = "Pallet Network Anglia Contact Form";
 

// IF THE DATA HAS BEEN POSTED

if (!empty($_POST['email']))

{
 

// CLEAN UP THE POTENTIALLY BAD AND DANGEROUS DATA

    $email      = clean_string($_POST["email"]);

    $name       = clean_string($_POST["name"]);

    $telephone  = clean_string($_POST["telephone"]);
 

// CONSTRUCT THE MESSAGE

    $content    = "You have a New Query From $name \n\n";

    $content   .= "Tel No: $telephone\n";

    $content   .= "Email: $email\n";
 

// SEND MAIL

    if (!mail( $to, $subj, $content, "From: $from\r\n"))

    {

       die("MAIL FAILED FOR $to");

    } else

    {

       die("MAIL SUCCEEDED FOR $to");

    }

} // END OF PHP - PUT UP THE FORM

?>

<form method="post">

<br/>Email: <input name="email" />

<br/>Phone: <input name="telephone" />

<br/>Name:  <input name="name" />

<br/><input type="submit" />

</form>

Hi Ray,

Thanks for the reply. I copied & pasted this to a test php area but I did not receive an email. Sure I am doing something wrong just not to up on this.

I have found the following which works but I can not see how to add the other required fields.
Message section is working, it's the other fields...

<?php
$to = "jason@userone.co.uk";
$subject = "Test mail";
$message = $_POST["message"];
$from = "jason@letum.co.uk";
$headers = "From: $from";
mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers);
echo "Mail Sent.";
?>

Fields required.

Name:
Telephone:
Email Address:
Collection Post Code:
Where did you hear about us:
Message:

Thanks

Jason

No, I received the email.  Try taking out line 17 from the code snippet I posted above.

You need to add the input fields to the HTML form (line 46, et seq) and you need to add the processing for these fields to the action script (lines 25, et seq).  There is a one-to-one relationship between the name= field in the HTML form and the $_POST key, like this:

<input name="xyz" type="text" />

puts its data into

$_POST["xyz"]

best regards, ~Ray
