    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.

    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

    contact engine php;


    // prepare email body text
    $Body = “”;
    $Body .= “Name: “;
    $Body .= $Name;
    $Body .= “n”;
    $Body .= “Tel: “;
    $Body .= $Tel;
    $Body .= “n”;
    $Body .= “Email: “;
    $Body .= $Email;
    $Body .= “n”;
    $Body .= “Message: “;
    $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 ““;
    print ““;
