$_post should be $_POST.

er...unless there is another, preceding script that is creating $_post as a filtered, cleaned up version of $_POST. If not, you should filter the form info to prevent potential massive spam abuse.

filter the HTML or the PHP? I'm sorry not too sure what you mean or how to do that.

Add error_reporting(E_ALL); to the top of your thanks.php script. See if any warnings, notices, errors come up.

apart from $_POST which madCoder, it looks perfectly fine.

Is your PHP installation configured to send mail?

For setting mail setting in your wamp server

First you should have existence of company mail server otherwise you can use google mail server.

For Company server

search 'mail function' in your php.ini file

make the following changes..

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = mail.[company_name].com
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from = [sender mail id]

For google mail server setting
