Hi there, I have set up a mailing form with captcha and it work great however in the form itself, it says action="mailer.php" . When its submitted, it tries to go a non existant page, aka www.mywebsite.com.au/mailer.php

My pages are php, can you help? I want it to work but to go to a specific page, not the php file it thinks is a page.
If I have anything else in the action feild, even the page I want, it doesn't send the mail.

php:
This one is called mailer.php

// load the variables form address bar
$subject = $_POST["subject"];
$message = $_POST["message"];
$from = $_POST["from"];
$verif_box = $_POST["verif_box"];

// remove the backslashes that normally appears when entering " or '
$message = stripslashes($message);
$subject = stripslashes($subject);
$from = stripslashes($from);

// check to see if verificaton code was correct
if(md5($verif_box).'a4xn' == $_COOKIE){
// if verification code was correct send the message and show this page
mail("instar_795@hotmail.com", 'Questions: '.$subject, $_SERVER."\n\n".$message, "From: $from");
// delete the cookie so it cannot sent again by refreshing this page
setcookie('tntcon','');
} else if(isset($message) and $message!=""){
// if verification code was incorrect then return to contact page and show error
header("Location:".$_SERVER."?subject=$subject&from=$from&message=$message&wrong_code=true");
exit;
} else {

Yes indeed. If you place your code into code tags, it will be a lot more readable and you'll get a lot more help. Couldn't you have just reposted in code tags in your last post? :)

You say the page is non-existent, but you post the code for it. I don't understand. The form needs to be sent to that page so it can deal with the data.

<form action="mailer.php" ...>

That's sending it to mailer.php. You want it to go somewhere else, just change the action.
