I've created a contact form with flash and php. My php coding has been ok until I decided to add the date(). My php is:



<?php
$today = date("F j, Y, g:i a");
$to = "jdbinsulationsltd@f2s.com";
$subject = "Customer Enquiry";
$msg = "$today\n\nCompany: $company\nName: $name\n\n Enquiry: \n $enquiry\n";
mail($to, $subject , $msg, "From: JD Bruce Website\nReply-To: $emailinput\n");
?>

Problem is the email I receive from the php coding is wrong, see below. Why do I get everything that is in bold? The text inside the bold text is the message I wanna show only.

What are you trying to do to the contents of your <textarea>? None of the code you posted should be inside it, at any rate, and that is why the browser is sending it back as content.

Shocked Please can you elaborate on your findings! I'm new to php. How can I simplify code or alter to stop the problem.

Wherever the code is for the <textarea>, remove whatever's inside it (make a backup of the file before you make the changes though).

before doing sending the message. use strip_tags() function to removed all html/php tags and then send in email
