I have created a website using dreamweaver. I am very new to all of this and have kind of been learning along the way. At any rate, I CANNOT get the booking request form to submit the gathered info to my email. I do not like the mailto: option because I don't like how it posts to an email and the sender has to actually press send (also it reveals my email address to spammers and such). Could someone PLEASE help me, I have been trying to get this to work for a couple of days now...here is the website: www.apomanagement.com and here are the codes that I am using.
this is the request form:

<body>

Your email field is called 'youremail' and you were trying to request 'email' also you need to uer headers for email. You will want to look into formatting your email otherwise it will come out in one long line
the simplest way will be to add an

$message .="<br>";

where you need a line break, it will make reading the email much easier.

anyway here is your modified php code

<?php
$to = "n_hernandez@apomnanagement.com";
$subject = "Booking Request Form";
$email = $_REQUEST['youremail'] ;
$message = $_REQUEST['eventmonth'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['eventday'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['eventyear'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['startsettime'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['am'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['pm'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['endsettime'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['am'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['pm'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['selectartist'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['firstname'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['lastname'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['youremail'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['company'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['streetaddress'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['city'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['stateprovince'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['country'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['postalcode'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['companywebsite'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['cellulartelephone'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['businesstelephone'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['businessfax'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuename'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuecapacity'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['agerestrictions'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['other'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuestreetaddress'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuecity'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuestateprovince'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuecountry'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuepostalcode'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuetelephone'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuefax'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuewebsite'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuecontactfirstname'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['venuecontactlastname'] ;
$message .= $_REQUEST['vvenuecontactphone'] ;
$headers = "From: $email\n"; 
$headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\n"; 
$headers .= "Content-Type: text/HTML; charset=ISO-8859-1\n"; 


$sent = mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers) ;
if($sent)
{header ("Location: http://www.apomanagement.com/thankyou.html"); }
else
{print "We encountered an error sending your mail"; }
?>

emhmk1 I changed code to what you gave me and I am coming up with an error code...
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home/apomtcom/public_html/contact.php on line 13
I did change a couple of my own misspellings i.e my email is n_hernandez@apomanagement.com and there is only one "v" in the last requested $message. Other than that I changed nothing...this is more complicated than I thought... LOL

I ran the entire html and php that you enclosed and it is working fine for me, granted on your site you are getting the variable error however the full working version i was testing is here

http://chadwickwebnet.com/dani/help.php

Check your inbox to see if you get an email after filling in the form, there may be something else conflicting on your page that hasn't been posted.

emhmk1..

So ok, the code you gave me worked.... It was something wrong on my side... Anyways, it sends to email... PS. I put the breaks in like you said and, yeah, the email IS A LOT EASIER TO READ! Now I am getting an error on line 109 (got thru almost whole doc with no errors!) this is what I am getting:

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/apomtcom/public_html/contact.php:10) in /home/apomtcom/public_html/contact.php on line 109

and here is the revised contact.php I am using:

I included everything on the ENTIRE page of the contact.php doc. I figure this way you would be able to hopefully tell me where my problem is and wth I am doing wrong.

P.S I thank you so much for all of your help!

I figured it out...
So what I was trying to do was re-direct to an html "thank you" page.
It keeps giving me errors so..... I went around it.
What I did what write what I wanted to write INSIDE the contact.php doc it's self and created a link to return to our home page and just named the contact.php - thankyou.php
I figured this would work perfectly until I can figure out the re-direct thing and why I am receiving an error for headers.
If poss. to still fix I am open for the solution.
