Hey guys i have a contact form for my site working fine but when i receive the emails i get some unwanted texts(bold area) after the email section.

name1: ryan

number: 343244

message1: hey

email: ss@yahoo.com

clearField: [type Function]

label1: NAME

label2: E-MAIL

label3: PHONE

label5: MESSAGE

countField: 5

arrayLabel: undefined,NAME,E-MAIL,PHONE,undefined,MESSAGE

i: 6

txtField: _level0.topmenu.page.pages.contactform.txtField5

_request: contact/email.php

the script



 * PHP 4.1.0+ version of email script. For more

 * information on the mail() function for PHP, see

 * http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php


// First, set up some variables to serve you in

// getting an email.  This includes the email this is

// sent to (yours) and what the subject of this email

// should be.  It's a good idea to choose your own

// subject instead of allowing the user to.  This will

// help prevent spam filters from snatching this email

// out from under your nose when something unusual is put.

$sendTo = "hey@email.com";

$subject = "helloy";

// variables are sent to this PHP page through

// the POST method.  $_POST is a global associative array

// of variables passed through this method.  From that, we

// can get the values sent to this page from Flash and

// assign them to appropriate variables which can be used

// in the PHP mail() function.

// header information not including sendTo and Subject

// these all go in one variable.  First, include From:

$headers = "From: " . $_POST["firstName"] ." ". $_POST["lastname"] . "<" . $_POST["email"] .">\r\n";

// next include a replyto

$headers .= "Reply-To: " . $_POST["email"] . "\r\n";

// often email servers won't allow emails to be sent to

// domains other than their own.  The return path here will

// often lift that restriction so, for instance, you could send

// email to a hotmail account. (hosting provider settings may vary)

// technically bounced email is supposed to go to the return-path email

$headers .= "Return-path: " . $_POST["email"];

// now we can add the content of the message to a body variable

$message = $_POST['message'];

$message = ""; 
foreach($_POST as $key=>$value) 
$message .= $key.": ".$value."\n\r"; 

// once the variables have been defined, they can be included

// in the mail function call which will send you an email

mail($sendTo, $subject, $message, $headers);


any1 got some suggestion to remove those text

You are contributing the following post:
This section in the code does it:

foreach($_POST as $key=>$value)
      $message .= $key.": ".$value."\n\r";

It puts the name and value of each of your form fields in $message, which is then sent as an email.

I don't know why above this code you set $message to "" after populating it. I think maybe initially you used the loop for debugging purposes. Delete it as well as the line that says

$message = "";

and you should be good.

Hi Ronin,

In order for me to really understand I would need the form as well, so I know how to write the correct code.

Thank you
