Simple newsletter subscription form template

Hello guys,

I'm looking for a simple but not archaic email subscription template - one box for entering an email and a button for submitting.

I can handle html, css and some jquery proficiently but doing ajax validation on the user side + php script which should actually send user entered email to my email address is too much beyond my skill right now.

There's always a template, do you have some links please?

Please have a look at this article.  I believe that it contains all of the explanation and code samples you would need to get started.  There is no AJAX involved (and none needed).  Please post back if you have any questions, ~Ray

Here you find all parts: the php script called sendmail.php, the javascript script called sendmail.js (what a fantasy, uh?); and the html page, maybe sendmail.html?

Feel free to ask you need some further help.

php side:
		$name = $_POST['name'];
		$email = $_POST['email'];
		$message = $_POST['message'];
		$to = 'email address here';
		$subject = 'Newletter subscribing';
		$headers = "From: " . strip_tags($email) . "\r\n";
		$headers .= "Reply-To: ". strip_tags($email) . "\r\n";
		$headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
		$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1\r\n";
		if (mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers))
			echo 'Thank you for subsribing';
			echo 'Ooops, an error occurred on the server.';
