Emails stopped going through

Emails stopped going through

Hi Jason,
I changed something on the contact us form I was using. The emails go through to the main person but not to the person listed on the form (email address entered on the form). I know on the block template i changed the name on the form elements so they would go through as a proper title name but that should affect the to email address should it? I keep thinking it must have something to do with matching up the field names bitu I can't make it work.

form field ...
<input id="Email_Address" name="Email - Courriel" type="text" value="<?php echo((isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("contactus","Email_Address"):"")); ?>" class="formTextfield_Medium" tabindex="6" pattern="[^@]+@[^@]+\.[a-zA-Z]{2,6}" title="Please enter a full email address" required>

to the CC entry ...
//CC Entries
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddCC($WA_MailObject,"".((isset($_POST["Email_Address"]))?$_POST["Email_Address"]:"") ."");

It has to look at the ID correct?

Just to update this as I test the email form and send a test email rather than going to the next page i get the for show that the fields were not filled out properly (see contact_us.jpg). It is supposed to go to an "email_sent.php" page.

Sorry but I'm stumped again. Could you please have a look at the attached and let me know if anything stands out?

the code looks at the name, not the ID.

you have changed the element name to:
name="Email - Courriel"

this is not a valid form element name as it contain spaces.

this is the same reason the validation is failing, all of the form elements are using invalid names, such as the first name
name="First Name - Prénom"

the spaces and UTF 8 accented character are not valid.
