PHP Form jQuery On Submit

Last Modified: 2015-03-07
I am using a CMS called expression engine.  It develops it's own forms. Here is an example:

Code on page:

Open in new window

Rendered Code:
<form id="mail_info" class="form-horizontal" action="/store/29" method="post" novalidate="novalidate" data-dpmaxz-eid="5">
<div class="hiddenFields">

Open in new window

The code on the page returns to the new page when the form is processed.  However, I need to send an email with all of the form inputs.  I cannot seem to figure out a way to do a if(isset($_POST['mail_info'] when it gets to the next page.  It is like the form was never sent.  The action is on the same page as the form but that does not seem to work either.

Is there a way to do it with jQuery / Javascript?
