is there a way to trigger the form post action="add_enquiry.php" where i wrote I WANT TO ADD FORM DATA TO MYSQL AND SEND EMAIL

My form used to work without problems, it added data to mysql, the sent that data in nice html email to me, THEN I added CAPTCHA to it and now it does the action even if code is not correct.

My Enquire page:

<?php
ob_start();

include_once "connect_to_mysql.php";

session_start();

    if ($_POST['form_submitted'] != '1') {


?>

some HTML and Javascript here... then on line 83

<form method="post" action="add_enquiry.php">

some more html with dropdwons and text fields... then line 338

           <input type="text" name="code">
      <input type="submit" value="Submit Form" />
<input type="hidden" name="form_submitted" value="1"/>
      </div>
</form>

    <?php } else if ($_POST[form_submitted] == 1) 
	{
		if(md5($_POST['code']) != $_SESSION['key'])
		
		{
		  
		  echo "It seems you entered an invalid Captcha key. Please go back and try again.";
		
		}else{
		
		echo "I WANT TO TRIGGER FORM ACTION HERE TO POST DATA TO MYSQL AND SEND EMAIL";
	          }
		?>

<?php }  
?>
?>
    <div align="center"></div>
    <div align="center"></div>
    <div align="left"></div></td>
    <td width="39">&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
</table>
</body>

</html>
<? ob_flush(); ?>

Add_enquiry.php

<?php

include_once "connect_to_mysql.php";
echo "connected and ready"

Is there a way to call the action later ?

1. session_start(); must be on the first line of coding.
2. where is $_SESSION defined?
3. you have to check user's entered code with session captcha code on add_enquiry.php page.
Because your form action is 'add_enquiry.php' which will directly executed code without checking captcha.
