PHP-based Form Mail (Feedback) Script

Using a PHP script, you may accept feedback from your website visitors and get the results emailed to you. You can use the sample script provided by RegWay.com and tweak it a bit to suit your requirements.

You would need to change the email address in the field $from to any email address on the domain name on which you are incorporating this script.

Example:

If your domain name is yourdomain.com, then you would define the From email address as some-name@yourdomain.com.

This email address need not be existing on the mail server of yourdomain.com; however, the domain name in the $from field has to be yours.

You may use an email address such as Do_Not_reply@yourdomain.com.

The value in the $mailto field needs to be changed to the email address, where the email containing the data submitted through the form needs to be delivered.

Note

In an attempt to keep a check on abuse from RegWay.com's Hosting Servers, the following conditions have been set for mail scripts on RegWay.com's Linux Hosting Servers:

  • The domain name in either the To or the From email address used in the script should be your domain name hosted with RegWay.com.

    Example: yourdomain.com is hosted with RegWay.com and yourotherdomain1.com and yourotherdomain2.com are hosted with some other hosting provider.

  • For mail scripts with the From email address as <user>@<server_hostname>, the To email address compulsorily should be an email address on your domain name hosted with RegWay.com.

    Example: yourdomain.com is hosted with RegWay.com with parent user yourdo & server name cp-00.webhostbox.net and yourotherdomain1.com is hosted with some other hosting provider.

    With the From email address as yourdo@cp-00.webhostbox.net:

Once the visitor provides feedback, you can display a message to the visitor thanking them for their feedback.

Sample Script

$gcount) { $message_body=$pstr; mail($mailto,$subject,$message_body,"From:".$from); echo "Mail has been sent"; } else { $message_body=$gstr; mail($mailto,$subject,$message_body,"From:".$from); echo "Mail has been sent"; } ?>
