Web contact form


I have a created a webform and mailscript for that. Basically, it should send information in mail id. The problem I am facing is I don't get any emails though the script is correct. I am using this same script at 4 different places with different mail ids. Rest of the places it is working well but it is not working here.

Initially I thought there might be problem with the hosting server (some don't allow scripts) but this is hosted on & I talked to them, they allow mailscripts.

Please help me solving this problem. Here is the script.


/* subject & email variables */

$emailSubject = 'Mail from';
$webMaster = '';

/* Gathering data variables */

$field_name = $_POST['name'];
$field_email = $_POST['email'];
$field_zip = $_POST['zip'];
$field_num = $_POST['num'];
$field_num1 = $_POST['num1'];
$field_refer = $_POST['refer'];

$body = <<<EOD
Name: $name
Email: $email
Phone No.: $zip-$num-$num1
Person who referred you: $refer

$headers = "From: $email\r\n";
$headers .= "content=type: text/html\r\n";
$success = mail($webMaster, $emailSubject, $body, $headers);

/* Results rendered as HTML */

$theResults = <<<EOD

GoDaddy file manager file permission icon

Maybe there is a permission problem.
After consulting with GoDaddy, I still couldn't run a script. They weren't any help, but they tried. Even though I had changed attributes in Wise-FTP to 755, I figured I still had a permission problem. Finally I found a grayed out permissions icon that is only available if a file is selected (checked) in the GoDaddy file manager.
The script ran after I checked the permission option shown below.
Executable: Allows users to execute files as scripts.
There are other options too. Maybe one of them will solve your problem.
