    on the contact page i have a regular contact form


    and then in my php page form_response.php

    < ?php $name = $_REQUEST['name']; $email = $_REQUEST['email']; $comment = $_REQUEST['comment']; $email_message = "Name: {$name} and your email is {$email} and your comment is {$comment}."; mail( "",'Form Response ', "$email"); header( "Location:" ); ?>

    Alright gangsta give this a whirl, and if that doesnt work make sure your server is properly configured to send mail.


    < ?php $name = $_POST['name']; $email = $_POST['email']; $comment = $_POST['comment']; mail( "", $comment, $email); echo "Mail Sent."; ?>

    are all those backslashes in your actual code? if so, why?
