Free php email script confusion

Free php email script confusion

How does this work? e.g. does the $Name = form textfield where the value comes from a form entry? Does this code go on the results page or form page? What triggers the code to work?

$Name = "Da Duder"; //senders name
$email = ""; //senders e-mail adress
$recipient = ""; //recipient
$mail_body = "The text for the mail..."; //mail body
$subject = "Subject for reviever"; //subject
$header = "From: ". $Name . " <" . $email . ">\r\n"; //optional headerfields
mail($recipient, $subject, $mail_body, $header); //mail command :)

This is an example of how to send an email.

It is an example only.

You can modify it to whatever you want if you are proficiant at coding PHP.

This script is hard coded to set the name to "Da Duder" name is just the friendly name of person sending the email.

if you want to modify it to send to an address entered in a form, you would modify the $recipient

$recipient = "".isset($_POST['email'])?$_POST['email']:"".'"; //recipient

It would go on a form page, the code does not have a trigger as is, you would need to add one.

This is free code offered as an example, it should only be used if you are proficient at coding PHP your self and is not supported.
