PHP Contact form send email – Website integration ✔️

Hello coders, today we are going to learn how to connect the Contact form with PHP mail to your website – php contact form send email

Lots of beginners who know to create a website using HTML and CSS sometimes struggles with config php contact form send email.

they know to create good looking contact forms but don’t know how to connect that with their email address.

Why do we use the PHP Contact form on our website?

We use the contact form for website visitors to communicate with website owners. That is a must thing building modern websites, because most people like to submit an email enquiry before they call the business. so you must design a contact form in every website.

most of the websites doesn’t have a backend to store the contact form submission data. so you have to build a mail function to send the email to the website owner email.

If you want to know how to create website backend for storing contact form submissions. please let me know. i will make a tutorial about that.

A few people ask me about this and I made this tutorial.

Step 1: Create a HTML contact form

<form action="mail.php" method="post">
    <label for="name">Your Name</label>
    <input type="text"  name="name" placeholder="Your name..">

    <label for="lname">Email</label>
    <input type="email"  name="email" placeholder="Your email..">
   
    <label for="message">Message</label>
    <textarea  name="message" placeholder="Write something.." style="height:200px"></textarea>

    <input type="submit" value="Submit">
  </form>

Step 2 is to create the mail.php file when someone clicks the submit button it will go to the mail.php file which we defined in the form action

 

<?php
//get data from form  

$name = $_POST['name'];
$email= $_POST['email'];
$message= $_POST['message'];
$to = "[email protected]";
$subject = "Mail From website";
$txt ="Name = ". $name . "\r\n  Email = " . $email . "\r\n Message =" . $message;
$headers = "From: [email protected]" . "\r\n" .
"CC: [email protected]";
if($email!=NULL){
    mail($to,$subject,$txt,$headers);
}
//redirect
header("Location:thankyou.html");
?>

That’s all. I made an explainer video and I will link it here .. you can check that if you have any doubts .. also you can ask me via discord

We are using the mail() function in PHP

Why i am not getting emails when i submit the form

These are the main reasons you are not getting emails
  • You may using your localhost to test : (you need a server to test the emails)
  • You are using a free hosting . (Free hosting like 000webhost doesnt allow you to send emails from the server)
  • From email address not valid. (create a from email address in ur mailbox)

Is this email is free for lifetime.

Yes, you can use this email until your hosting provider block you from using it. Normally all hosting providers will give you unlimited email sending access.
