Another PHP email help thread

Hi there…new to PHP and new to the forums.

I’m currently running a small home-based server using Apache 2, & PHP 5.0.4
I have uploaded the simplest form found here to the root directory, I have even turned register_globals “on”…but yet get no results. The only change I have made is fill in the “to” field in the mailer.php file with the appropirate address (as seen bellow)

After submitting the info in the contact.html page I am taken to the confirmation page, but nothing is sent to my inbox (I have tried it with a couple of active email addresses)

So…not sure if I’m missing anything, any help or pointing in the right direction would be greatly appreciated…Thanks!!


<form method="POST" action="mailer.php">
   <input type="text" name="name" size="19"><br>
   <input type="text" name="email" size="19"><br>
   <textarea rows="9" name="message" cols="30"></textarea>
   <input type="submit" value="Submit" name="submit">


if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {

$to = "[email protected]";
$subject = "Form Tutorial";
$name_field = $_POST['name'];
$email_field = $_POST['email'];
$message = $_POST['message'];
$body = "From: $name_field
 E-Mail: $email_field
echo "Data has been submitted to $to!";
mail($to, $subject, $body);

} else {

echo "blarg!";
