I have a php email form that is giving me greif. It is sending blank messages. Could anyone take a look at the code and help. It would be greatly appreciated.

contact.php

<script LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function Validate(form)
{
if (form.name.value == "")
{ alert("Please insert your name"); form.name.focus(); return; }
if (form.email.value == "")
{ alert("Please insert your E-mail"); form.email.focus(); return; }
if (form.comment.value == "")
{ alert("Please insert your comments or questions"); form.comment.focus(); return; }
if (form.email.value.indexOf('@', 0) == -1 || form.email.value.indexOf('.', 0) == -1)
{ alert("Your email is not valid."); form.email.focus(); return; }
form.submit();
}
</script>

It's sending empty messages because $comment doesn't exist. You can get it by replacing $comment with $_POST['comment'] .

Also, you $email in sendmail.php should be replaced with $_POST['email'] the same for $subject, it should be changed to $_POST['subject']

That got it working! Thank you very much. It is always fun trying to fix someone elses code...
