A Nice & Simple Contact Form Problems

  • # July 30, 2009 at 10:02 am

    Hi all

    I’ve just found this site and it looks fantastic.

    I’m new to this game of website design, you could call me a virgin, so please be gentle with me and
    do not use lots of those impossible to as yet understand words and abbreviations!!!!

    I’ve tried to implement A Nice & Simple Contact Form but the emails just end up in my junk box.

    Apart from that it looks like it works fine but I will build the form into the template that I have developed.

    What should I do differently?

    What should I look out for when making this go live as I want it to work for whoever uses it?

    Thanks guys and gals.

    You mean it is being filtered out by your email program as spam? If so, then it’s nothing to do with the form. Just mark it as "not spam" and next time it will go straight to your inbox. The only thing you can do for you users is warn them to check their junk mail and give them the same advice I just gave you.

    Hi I"m new to this php stuff, but I’m trying to use the form as well and I’m having problems to. when ever I try a test it goes to some error page and no email gets sent

    I’m using a windows server I’m not sure if thats the problem, but please can someone help me out…

    Code:
    < ?php

    $EmailFrom = "$Email";
    $EmailTo = "andre.cameron@gmail.com";
    $Subject = "City Sightseeing Toronto Contact Form";
    $Name = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['Name']));
    $Tel = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['Tel']));
    $Email = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['Email']));
    $Message = Trim(stripslashes($_POST['Message']));

    // validation
    $validationOK=true;
    if (!$validationOK) {
    print "“;
    exit;
    }

    // prepare email body text
    $Body = “”;
    $Body .= “Name: “;

    $Body .= $Message;
    $Body .= “n”;

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

    /* Modification by Toni for Windows servers */
    ini_set(“sendmail_from”, “$Email”);

    // redirect to success page
    if ($success){
    print ““;
    }
