#1 - On your form tag, set method="post" and set action="yourphpfilename.php"

#2 - Replace yourphpfilename with the name of your php file that is going to collect the data from the form and send it through mail (eg : form.php)

#3 - On your html form, set name property for name, email and comments:
eg : <input type="text" name="name" />

#4 - In your php file, form.php in our example, provide the following code:

$name = $_POST['name'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$comments = $_POST['comments'];

$to = "test@gmail.com";
$subject='Testing form';

$message="<table width='100%' class='table'>
    <tr><td height='15px'></td></tr>
	    <tr><td colspan='3'>Testing form</td></tr>
    <td width='266'><label>Name</label></td>
    <td width='266'>".$name."</td>
    <td width='266'></td>
    <td width='266'><label>Email-id</label></td>
    <td width='266'>".$email."</td>
    <td width='266'></td>
    <td width='266'><label>Comments</label></td>
    <td width='266'>".$comments."</td>
    <td width='266'></td>

//populate the header filed
$headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'From: '.$from . "\r\n";


Note :
a) The values provided within $_POST should be the values provided in the name tag as described in #3 above
b) I have listed only the very basic steps required. You will have to work on validations and other details for the form to be secure

Hope this helps

Good Code :)

For larger files i use phpmailer-fe :)
