I have the following codes for a simple contact email form. The forms get sent correctly, however none of the header info is included. No sent from, subject and so on. Can someone take a look at tell me what is wrong?


	$to = 'info@hcscomputersolutions.com';
	$subject = $_POST['inquiryOptions'];
	$header = $_POST['emailAddress'];
	$message = "From: $fullName\nBusiness Name: $businessName\nSender e-mail address: $header\nSender phone number: $phoneNumber\nPreferred method of contact: $contact\nRegarding: $subject\n\nMessage:\n$comment\n";

if ($header==" ") {
echo "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=error.html\">";

$success = mail ($to, $subject, $message, "From: <$header>");

if ($success){
echo "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=success.html\">";
else {
echo "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=failure.html\">";

<form action="emailProcessor.php">


<form action="emailProcessor.php" method="post">

By default, the method is GET, so nothing in POST to read ...
