PHP online quote form mail problem

Hi, I'm having some php trouble...

I have an online quote form which has the following code

<form method="POST" action="contact.php">

<p>Email From: <br>
<input type="text" name="EmailFrom">
<input type="text" name="Name">
<textarea name="Address"></textarea>
<input type="text" name="Tel">
<input type="checkbox" name="WeddingHire" value="Yes">
<input type="checkbox" name="CorporateHire" value="Yes">
<textarea name="QuestionsAndComments"></textarea>
<p><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit">

// get posted data into local variables
$EmailFrom = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['EmailFrom']));
$EmailTo = "";
$Subject = "Email From Website";
$Name = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['Name']));
$Address = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['Address']));
$Tel = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['Tel']));
$WeddingHire = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['WeddingHire']));
$CorporateHire = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['CorporateHire']));
$QuestionsAndComments = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['QuestionsAndComments']));

// prepare email body text
$Body = "";
$Body .= "Name: ";
$Body .= $Name;
$Body .= "\n";
$Body .= "Address: ";
$Body .= $Address;
$Body .= "\n";
$Body .= "Tel: ";
$Body .= $Tel;
$Body .= "\n";
$Body .= "WeddingHire: ";
$Body .= $WeddingHire;
$Body .= "\n";
$Body .= "CorporateHire: ";
$Body .= $CorporateHire;
$Body .= "\n";
$Body .= "QuestionsAndComments: ";
$Body .= $QuestionsAndComments;
$Body .= "\n";

// send email
$success = mail($EmailTo, $Subject, $Body, "From: <$EmailFrom>");

// redirect to success page
if ($success){
print "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=thankyou.html\">";
print "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=error.html\">";

when I run this it just keeps returning the error page and not sending the message, is there something obviously wrong with this? Are any special handles required for the php mail function with freepgs?

Any help will be greatly appreciated


If you have not done so already you need to log into your account and use the contact form to request that mail() is enabled on your account. At first glance I don't see any problem with your code though, so I assume that this will fix your problem.


thanks very much, i'll go do that just now



@acidbath Since this topic has NOTHING to do with newsletters I consider that spam. If you have a problem with freepgs move to another host, it's not like you're paying a lot for the hosting.


fact is that I am not receiving the services that I did pay for. no matter the price.


Nowhere did we guarantee you the ability to use the mail function.

Thank you, Admin
