Can anyone tell me why this contact form is not sending the data. It never even gets to the success page when you submit it.

<?php

session_start();
if(strtoupper($_SESSION['keycode']) != strtoupper($_POST['r_captcha'])){
				$error .= "<span style='color:#FF0000'>The security code you entered '".$_POST['r_captcha']."' did not match the one 
							displayed '".$_SESSION['keycode']."'<br> please go back and try again.</span><br/><br/>";
}


//$to		= "my@gmail.com";
$to		= "me@gmail.com";
$from 	= $_POST['r_Email'];
$sub	= "Contact Form" ;

//  Validation of required field
foreach($_POST as $key=>$val){
	$rkey = explode('_',$key);
	 	if ($rkey[0]=='r'){			
			if($val==""){
				$nu++;
				$error .= $nu."- ". $rkey[1]."<br/>";				
			}
		}
}

// Redirect if requird field empty
if ($error!=""){
	include ('error-contact.htm');
}else{
	
$body .= 	"Name: ". 		$_POST['r_Name'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Email: ". 	$_POST['r_Email'].	"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Phone: ". 	$_POST['r_Phone'].	"<br/><br/>";
$body .= 	"Appointment Details  "		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Preferred Dates/Times: ".  		$_POST['r_Preferred_Dates_Times'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Preferred Location: ".  		$_POST['r_Preferred_Location'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Preferred Length: ".  		$_POST['r_Preferred_Length'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Outcall Location: ".  		$_POST['outcall'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Any Likes or Dislikes: ".  		$_POST['Any_Likes_or_Dislikes'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Model(s) interested in:  ".  		$_POST['Model_interested_in'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Comments: ".  		$_POST['message'].		"<br/>";



	 $headers  	= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
     $headers  .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n";
   	 $headers 	= "From: $from\r\n";
	 $headers  .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1 \n";	 	 
	 $rea = mail($to,$sub,$body, $headers);
	 
	 if ($ret){
	 	$ret="true";
		$error = "Sending Fail";
		include ('index.php');
	 }else{
	 	$ret="false";
		$error = "Thanks for contacting us<br />
Belle de Jour";
		include ('success-contact.htm');
	 }	 
	 print $ft[name];
} 
?>

As a start. try it without the captcha.  That frequently is the source of problems.  

Look in the error logs to see what, if any messages you are getting.

Then step through the code and use var_dump at each step in verify that you have the values you expect. I would start by looking at the $_POST variables

If the $_POST variables are not coming across, then the problem is probably in the markup, and we will need a link so we can do diagnostics.

There were several errors in the $body part.
$body = 	"Name: ". 		$_POST['r_Name'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Email: ". 	$_POST['r_Email'].	"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Phone: ". 	$_POST['r_Phone'].	"<br/><br/>";
$body .= 	"Appointment Details  <br/>";
$body .= 	"Preferred Dates/Times: ".  		$_POST['r_Preferred_Dates_Times'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Preferred Location: ".  		$_POST['r_Preferred_Location'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Preferred Length: ".  		$_POST['r_Preferred_Length'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Outcall Location: ".  		$_POST['outcall'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Any Likes or Dislikes: ".  		$_POST['Any_Likes_or_Dislikes'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Model(s) interested in:  ".  		$_POST['Model_interested_in'].		"<br/>";
$body .= 	"Comments: ".  		$_POST['message'].		"<br/>";

Add some error reporting at the top of the page and these errors will be evident

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
