Question On Contact PHP forms

Ok, I read the tutorials on the Best of kirupa and still Not completly getting it… I couldnt get it to work for me. I set my Flash site up just like he stated, so I attached a .fla at the end, thanks all

  1. Heres my code I used in the index.php file

 * PHP 4.1.0+ version of email script. For more
 * information on the mail() function for PHP, see

// First, set up some variables to serve you in
// getting an email.  This includes the email this is
// sent to (yours) and what the subject of this email
// should be.  It's a good idea to choose your own
// subject instead of allowing the user to.  This will
// help prevent spam filters from snatching this email
// out from under your nose when something unusual is put.

$sendTo = "[email protected]";
$subject = "Hello";

// variables are sent to this PHP page through
// the POST method.  $_POST is a global associative array
// of variables passed through this method.  From that, we
// can get the values sent to this page from Flash and
// assign them to appropriate variables which can be used
// in the PHP mail() function.

// header information not including sendTo and Subject
// these all go in one variable.  First, include From:
$headers = "From: " . $_POST["firstName"] ." ". $_POST["lastname"] . "<" . $_POST["email"] .">
// next include a replyto
$headers .= "Reply-To: " . $_POST["email"] . "
// often email servers won't allow emails to be sent to
// domains other than their own.  The return path here will
// often lift that restriction so, for instance, you could send
// email to a hotmail account. (hosting provider settings may vary)
// technically bounced email is supposed to go to the return-path email
$headers .= "Return-path: " . $_POST["email"];

// now we can add the content of the message to a body variable
$message = $_POST["message"];

// once the variables have been defined, they can be included
// in the mail function call which will send you an email
mail($sendTo, $subject, $message, $headers);


Ok, reread the real kirupa tutorial on that, this is the updated code

  1. Heres the .fla

It works as far as I can tell, just I dont get the email yet…
