Hey all, I am just learning PHP and have pieced this code together, but I cannot get it to work.
Anyone have an idea on why?
First file is the file contact page.

#1) edit that post and use code=php tags

#2) "it works" doesnt give anyone much to go off of. what doesnt work? is an error printed? Hard to make a pizza if you don't know what toppings are supposed tobe on it.

#3) I'll take a stab and say that since the script you downloaded is amailer, that the mail isnt going through. the most common cause of no mail is that the server you are running the script on doesnt have smtp set up. search around here. about every 15-25 posts in this forum is someone not having smtp set up
