    Hi guys. I need a little help here:)

    I would like to create a mail form. I think the best, would be to use php.

    Here is the problem, I know absolutely nothing about PHP so I am hoping someone will help me create the script.

    I have already done lots of googling, but I can't find exactly what I want with instructions I actually understand:)

    Okay this is what I want:

    An message form which sends the email to two email addresses.
    The following fields:
    Name (required)
    Email address (required)
    Message (required)

    Some sort of method of validating the email address, ie @ is required.

    Some sort of captcha to stop spam. I prefer the type that gives an easy addition calculation.

    On send, the information is sent to two email addresses. Possibly to have the from be the same as the email address entered in the form.

    If there is no @ in the email address or name or message has not been entered, the form is recalled with the information the person has already filled in and a message stating there is an error and requesting that the person ensure that they have filled out there name, included a message and entered a valid email address.

    If all has gone well, a simple thank you message is displayed.

    At a later stage I would like to add additional fields.

    Thanks Cara

    Have a look at php form wizard from here, there is a free demo to try, it will give you most of what you want, you could then edit the code to give you the rest. Alternatively have a look at this

    Hi guys. Thanks for the responses.
    It appears that I already have a little piece of software on my pc which does what I need. Coffee cup form builder. It does the captcha, mails to multiple addresses and a variety of other stuff. If any one is interested, here is an example of a quick form I created.
