This is one of the fastest ways to get data submitted by a HTML form, make it readable and send it by e-mail. Fast and easy. From the raw example to some basic functionality.

# Create an empty message variable.

$to="info@mydomain.com";

You know it would be nice if you post the whole contact form so people can test it out.

It's sad that noone acknowledge your thread.

I know it's 7 years to late.

Thanks for sharing!

I hear you, and I agree.
Here's an HTML form:

<html>
<head>
    <title>PHP_Email_Form</title>
</head>

<body>
<h1>PHP Email Form</h1>
<form action="EmailFormData.php" method="post" name="mailform">
<table align=center cellpadding=5 cellspacing=0>
   <tr>
       <td>First:</td>
       <td><input type="text" name="data1" size="12"></td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
       <td>Second:</td>
       <td><input type="text" name="data2" size="12"></td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
       <td>Third:</td>
       <td><input type="text" name="data3" size="12">
       <input type="submit" name="Send" value="Send">
       </td>
   </tr>
</table>
</form>
</body>
</html>

and here's the PHP script, EmailFormData.php:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

<html>
<head>
    <title>EmailTest01</title>
</head>

<body BGCOLOR=#0099FF>

<!-- This script is designed to be a simple email test -->

<?PHP 
# Create an empty message variable.
$message="";
# The mail that we want to use to receive the submitted information.
$to="YourEmailAddress@YourDomain";
$MailFrom = "FromAddressForDisplay@YourDomain";
# The E-Mail subject
$subject="This is a message from PHPEmailForm.html";
# iterate the $_POST array
foreach ($_POST as $key=>$value)
{
    $message.=$key.": " . $value . "\n";
}
# Send message by e-mail.
if($sm=mail($to, $subject, $message, "From: $MailFrom"))
{
   print("<B><CENTER><FONT COLOR=BLUE>Your email has been successfully sent</FONT></CENTER></B>\n");
}
else
{
   print("<B><CENTER><FONT COLOR=RED>OOPS. Something's gone wrong. Try debugging your script.</FONT></CENTER></B>\n");
}

?>

</body>
</html>

I've just added a bit of colour to the feedback.
I hope you like it.
