I have a form where someone can send me a message but I do not seem to get the e-mail.

here is the html file:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
<title>Financial E-mail: Send us questions.</title>

<hr/>
<style type="text/css">
body
{
background-color: rgb(98,21,153);;
background-position: top;
background-repeat: no-repeat; 
color: gold;

}
a:link {color:rgb(255,215,0);}/* unvisited link */
a:visited {color:rgb(205,215,03);}/* visited link */
a:hover {color:rgb(0,0,0);}  /* mouse over link */
a:active {color:rgb(255,255,255);} /* selected link */
.center
{
margin:auto;
width:70%;
}
p.italic {font-style:italic;}
p.oblique {font-style:oblique;}
p.color {color:azure};


</style>
</head>

Are you checking in local system? You won't receive email without SMTP.
Once you upload this to LIVE you will get emails.

@trascendent: Are you checking this system in your localhost?
Mail sending code never works in your localhost. Got it or not?

Problem is here.

$email1 = $_POST['email'];
$subject1 = $_POST['subject'];
$message1 = $_POST['message'];
 /*
if ( mail($email, $subject, $message) )

You are storing values in variables, email1, subject1 and message1 but in mail function you are giving email, subject and variable
This is the problem.
here is corrected code

$email = $_POST['email'];
$subject = $_POST['subject'];
$message = $_POST['message'];
 /*
if ( mail($email, $subject, $message) )

Replace this piece and then let me know

BTW - some hosts require that you have specific flags set in your email headers. Check the hosts' FAQ on this.
