    Hey, I’m designing a website for this guy, and he needs a submission form to send emails to him. I’m a sorta new to forms, never needed to use them before, but i know how to use the action=”mailto:[email protected]” to send emails. what i need is something that doesn’t require a user to pull up an email with the form inside of it. What i need is like a direct send kinda thing, user friendly. Any help is appreciated


    Sending an email with PHP is super easy: mail()

    You can create a new file on your server called email.php (or whatever you want) and just make sure that your form’s action points to that file:

    <form name="contact-form" action="email.php" method="post">

    There are a bunch of tutorials out there already so I won’t bother copy/pasting them into here!
