Simple contact form

Jason
The attached form wrote this line of code which generated a syntax error.
<?php
if ((isset(["SimpleContact_submit"]) || isset(["SimpleContact_submit_x"]))) {
//WA Universal Email object="mail"

Searched a few forum answers and changed line 4 to
if ((isset($_POST["WebsiteDevelopment_submit"]))) {
if ((isset($_POST["SimpleContact_submit"]))) {
if ((isset($_POST["SimpleContact_submit_x"]))) {
all of which allowed the form to load and form to be filled out. It appeared that the email was being sent as the form closed and went to the Thank You page, however, not getting an email response. As always thanking you in advance.

the action of the form is set to post to the thank you page:

action="H-Krueger-Design-ThankYou.html"


change that to blank so it posts to itself:
action=""

Thanks for the blazingly fast reply.
Per your reply I changed line 247
<form class="Basic_Default" id="SimpleContact_Basic_Default" name="SimpleContact_Basic_Default" method="post" action="H-Krueger-Design-ThankYou.html">
to
<form class="Basic_Default" id="SimpleContact_Basic_Default" name="SimpleContact_Basic_Default" method="post" action="">
Must have missed something, not getting email!
Revised file attached.

Who is your host?

Depending on your host, you may need to set certain options in Universal Email.

Some hosts will work if you leave the SMTP Server setting on the Email Server Tab blank, others will require that you enter the SMTP server address.

Some will work using the standard Mail protocol, other will require that you use the Pear Mail for SMTP, some using Pear mail will require authentication.

Some hosts may require that the from address being used be a valid email address for your domain. Some may require that the option to include the from Email address be passed as an extra parameter.

To be successful with Universal Email, you will need to know the requirements of your host for sending an email using a PHP script.

Also, double check your Spam folder, it is possible that the email is being trapped as spam.

Hosting at Network Solutions.
Will have a chat with them.

I believe Network solutions requires that an SMTP server address be entered, make sure you have the correct SMTP server address entered.

Note to self - when entering email address in a form "ahfajhfkjak@y.y" does not constitute a valid email address. Do'h.
Forms are working now. All is well with the world.
BTW - all is well at NetSol. No reported mail problems and not restrictions on my accounts.
