Hey everybody. If anyone can help me out with this I'd appreciate it. Additional information on the problem is listed under the code. Here's the code: ---------------------------------------------------- <?php if ($submit) { if (($title=="") || ($url=="") || ($info=="") || ($keywords=="") || ($email=="") || ($fname=="") || ($phone=="") || ($comments=="") || ($lname=="")) { $msg = "

Error: You have left a required field empty.

"; } } ?> <?php if (isset($msg)) { echo "$msg"; } else { $toemail = "myemailaddress"; $emailtitle = "Process Immediately."; $webmasteremail = "myemailaddress2"; $emailbody = "$title\n"; $emailbody .= "$url\n"; $emailbody .= "$info\n"; $emailbody .= "$keywords\n"; $emailbody .= "$email\n"; $emailbody .= "$fname\n"; $emailbody .= "$lname\n"; $emailbody .= "$phone\n"; $emailbody .= "$comments\n"; mail("$toemail", "From $webmasteremail : $emailtitle", $emailbody, "From: $email\r\n" ."Reply-To: $email\r\n"); echo("

E-mail successfully sent. We will be processing your order shortly. Thank you!

"); } ?> ---------------------------------------------------- end code The function of this code goes along with a form on the page Users fill it out, click submit, it gets mailed to me. You missed a required field, it doesn't get sent out. However, just by calling the page up results in me recieving a completely blank form reply. Users don't even have to hit the button and the page acts like they did (neglecting the fact that required fields are empty, sending me empty results). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Joe

Just need some info :)

It is very simple you need to check all fields in form to ensure that user entered something, and then check this 'something' to ensure that that is email, name etc.

Feel free to ask me.

I can fix it in 5 mins if you send me your php script.

With best regards,

Some addition.
You must check that all fields contains information (are not blank), and check $submit variable.

Here is example small example :

// checking all fields filled
// and with correct info
// (your ready-made functions

// Checking if form is
// submitted
if (isset($submit))

// mail results
// show error, form is not
// filled correctly
