thank you but it is not working can you look into this please its very urgent.

Can we see the form you are using to submit data to this script. Also Remove the @ and use error_reporting(E_ALL) and display_errors(1) so you can see if there are any errors. Also what does $success equal? can you add var_dump($success) just so we can see if it is true or false.


Which is the value of $email_from? A GMail account? The From header MUST be an email address that you can authenticate against an SMTP server. If using a free hosting then this is not the issue, as they will replace the headers. The same if you set sendmail properly.

Here you have to set two headers From and Reply-To:

  • From with your email
  • Reply-To with the value of $_POST['email']

The thread I linked explains the issue and it is linked to another thread with more information. Please take time to understand how it works.

this is my form in which I am trying to do this

<form id="main-contact-form" class="contact-form" name="contact-form" method="post" action="sendemail.php">
                    <div class="col-sm-5 col-sm-offset-1">
                        <div class="form-group">
                            <label>Name *</label>
                            <input type="text" name="name" class="form-control" required="required">
                        <div class="form-group">
                            <label>Email *</label>
                            <input type="email" name="email" class="form-control" required="required">
                        <div class="form-group">

                            <input type="text" class="form-control">
                    <div class="col-sm-5">

                        <div class="form-group">
                            <label>Message *</label>

please help me actully I am new in php and this is my urgent project thanks in advance

What are the results when you do var_dump($success), the text from the your comment back looked like it was the $body not the $success also depending on version of PHP you are using you can replace the trim(stripslashes($_POST['NAME'])); with filter_input(INPUT_POST, 'NAME', FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING);. For $email I would do filter_input(INPUT_POST, 'email', FILTER_SANITIZE_EMAIL);

Probably the php is having error in the line $subject = @trim(stripslashes($_POST['subject'])); where your form is not having the post for 'subject' area.

commented: nice catch! +13


I am replacing name and email input as you guided me but result remains the same.

Take time to read the first thread in the forum:


It states, amongst many other things:

Do not tell us how urgent your problem is. Seriously, for us there is no urgency at all. Many that can help will ignore any URGENT or ASAP requests.

If you are still getting errors, post your updated code. We have no idea what it looks like, e.g. you may have introduced a typo.
In addition, when testing, try omitting @ as it suppresses error messages:
