This contact.php will process the data and send it to my email. I want to achieve this effect, when user submit the form correctly, it will display a alert, and then redirect the page to : thankyou.html.
When there is some error, it will display another alert, and then redirect the page to error.html.

Whether below code can get this done? Thank you for your help or suggestion.

<?php
$field_firstname = $_POST['cf_firstname'];
$field_lastname = $_POST['cf_lastname'];
$field_emailaddress= $_POST['cf_emailaddress'];
$field_telepohone = $_POST['cf_telephone'];
$field_country = $_POST['cf_country'];
$field_business = $_POST['cf_business'];
$field_comments = $_POST['cf_comments'];

$mail_to = 'someone@somewhere.com';
$subject = 'Message from a site visitor '.$field_name;

$body_message = 'From: '.$field_name."\n";
$body_message .= 'E-mail: '.$field_email."\n";
$body_message .= 'Message: '.$field_message;

$headers = 'From: '.$cf_email."\r\n";
$headers .= 'Reply-To: '.$cf_email."\r\n";

$mail_status = mail($mail_to, $subject, $body_message, $headers);

if ($mail_status) { ?>
	<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
		alert('Thank you for the message. We will contact you shortly.');
	
		setTimeout("window.location= 'thankyou.html', 1250);
	</script>
<?php
}
else { ?>
	<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
		alert('Message failed. Please check the items required');
		
		setTimeout("window.location= 'error.html', 1250);
	</script>
<?php
}
?>

Why You can't try this code?

if ($mail_status) 
{ 
header('location:thankyou.html');
}
else 
{ 
header('location:error.html');
}
?>

and you can use your scripts in thankyou.html and error.htm.

Well, the variables you're using in these lines of code

$body_message = 'From: '.$field_name."\n";
$body_message .= 'E-mail: '.$field_email."\n";
$body_message .= 'Message: '.$field_message;

have not been defined in the code that precedes it (for as far as I can see), and therefore will be null (if what I see here is all your code).

thank you minitauros for your reminder, I do made mistake obviously, I copied this code from website and do some change but it seems you are correct that I should modify it more. pls see below.


$body_message = 'From: '.$field_firstname."\n";
$body_message = 'Email: '.$field_emailaddress."\n";
$body_message = 'Message: '.$field_comments;

how should I add lastname, country, and business to above code?

I'd probably re-write it as follows,

// This merges the firstname and lastname into one variable
$field_name = $_POST['cf_firstname']." ".$_POST['cf_lastname'];

// Create e-mail message body
$body_message  = 'From:   '.$field_name.'\n';
$body_message .= 'E-mail: '.$_POST['cf_emailaddress'].'\n';
$body_message .= 'Message: \n'.$_POST['cf_emailaddress'].'\n';
$body_message .=  $_POST['cf_telephone'].'\n';
$body_message .=  $_POST['cf_country'].'\n';
$body_message .=  $_POST['cf_business'].'\n';
$body_message .=  $_POST['cf_comments'];

$headers = 'From: '.$_POST['cf_emailaddress'].'\r\n';
$headers .= 'Reply-To: '.$_POST['cf_emailaddress'].'\r\n';

$mail_to = 'someone@somewhere.com';
$subject = 'Message from a site visitor '.$field_name;
 
$mail_status = mail($mail_to, $subject, $body_message, $headers);

There are some things that you may want to do like sanitize the input to protect yourself against malicious users.

Cheers,
Mark
