    resolved [RESOLVED] Error in contact form


    Sorry but I am new to php. I have a contact form but it doesn't work. Please, read below the source code:

    HTML Contact form:

    <form id="contact" action="process.php">
    <label for="name" id="name_label">Nombre <span class="note">(requerido)</span></label>
    <input type="text" name="name" id="name" size="50" value="" class="text-input" />
    <label for="email" id="email_label">Email <span class="note">(requerido)</span></label>
    <input type="text" name="email" id="email" size="50" value="" class="text-input" />
    <label for="subject" id="subject_label">Asunto</label>
    <input type="text" name="subject" id="subject" value="" class="text-input" size="50" />
    <label for="msg" id="msg_label">Mensaje <span class="note">(requerido)</span></label>
    <textarea cols="10" rows="3" name="msg" id="msg" class="text-input"></textarea><br />
    <input type="submit" name="submit" class="button" id="submit_btn" value="Enviar mensaje"/><div class="clear"></div><!-- clear float --> <br />
    <span class="error" id="name_error">Por favor introduzca nombre</span>
    <span class="error" id="email_error">Por favor introduzca dirección de correo electrónico</span> <span class="error" id="email_error2">Por favor introduzca dirección de correo electrónico válida</span> <span class="error" id="msg_error">Por favor introduzca el mensaje</span>

    process.php code:

    $emailTo = 'contact@domain.es';
    $subject = $_REQUEST['subject'];

    $body = "Name: $name \n\nEmail: $email \n\nMessage: $msg";
    $headers = 'From: '.$name.' <'.$email.'>' . "\r\n" . 'Reply-To: ' . $email;

    mail($emailTo, $subject, $body, $headers);

    How could I know what's happening?

    bienvedio al forum senor(a)!

    You should break this down into pieces. First, make sure your mail server is set up (99.9% chance it is but just be sure)

    make a page <?php
    $emailTo = 'contact@domain.es';
    $subject = $_REQUEST['subject'];
    echo mail('youremail@you.com','test','test','From: testing@you.com'); //that should be enough to get through
    note the echo - you should see a 1 if it is working
    you can check mail logs as well. Also try emailing to another address and see if your send addr. is not rejecting it

    Once you know this works then just build it up step by step. Good post, but learn to trouble-shoot in small pieces - and welcom to PHP!

    Hey! You may have inadvertently stumbled onto some genius there! :-)

    Hi Sam,

    Thank you very much for your response and suggestions.

    It already works. I don't know why but the mail address I was using doesn't work. But if I send an email from another mail address, it works. It is an account from google business and, as the "from" mail address is not validated, the mail server could be filtering. Nevertheless, with a gmail account (but not business) it works.

    I will investigate in this way.
