Email not sent from simple contact form

I'm trying to set up a simple contact form. Recently installed Super Suite including Data Bridge. Previously used Contact Form Solution Pack with no trouble! The form gets inserted onto the Dreamweaver page okay. I believe that it's functions are set correctly, see attached screen shot for waue...php file.

DW CS5.5 on Mac OSX 10.6.8

Also, can't see how to redirect user to a thankyou page after the form has sent.

Help appreciated!

Who Is your Host?

In the email settings, you have used the Form input for the from address, many hosts will require that the from address be a valid email address for your domain

In your form page, open the server behaviors panel, and click the the Universal Email server behavior to edit it. Click the from button to go to the advanced from settings, Use a valid email for the from address for your domain, in the replay to setting, you can use the dynamic binding.

depending on your host, you may also need to check the option to include the from address as an extra parameter.

In the UE server behavior you can also set the go to page setting to redirect to the thank you page.

If you continue to have a problem, send a copy of the form page (compress the php page to a zip archive) and a link where i can test the page.

Thanks Jason, that seems to prove the basic functionality works now. I was on the brink of getting the drawing board and pencils out and returning to a more comfortable world.
