What wrong with this code?


I am having trouble with this code. The submit button is not sending an email like it suppose to. I used my email address as a simple test email for this code.

First Name

Last Name

Email Address

I think you got to look at the:



I have changed the code a bit. and it's still not working. What i'm trying to do, is to send an email without opening my outlook.
host page:

<form action="LSPRS test2.php" method="post">
<ul style="list-style-type: none;">
<li>Name: <input type="text" name="name" size="30" maxlength="40"/></li>
<li>Email: <input type="text" name="email" size="30" maxlength="40"/></li>
<li><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Send"/></li>

PHP site code:

$admin = 'steven1lee@yahoo.com' ; // Change to your admin email 'from' address
$subject = 'Tutorial URLs'; //Your email subject
$name = stripslashes($name); //can be stripslashes('name');
$email = stripslashes($email);
// Your HTML message with table, links and images
$message = '
<head><content type="text/html"; charset=utf-8>
<title>HTML & CSS Tutorial</title>
<p style="color: red;"><img src="http://www.wickham43.net/images/orangew90x90.jpg" alt="Orange W"> Here are some urls regarding my tutorial</p>
<table border="1" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="20" bgcolor="#eeeeee">
<th>Introduction</th><th>Contents</th><th>Useful Sites</th>
<td><img src="http://www.wickham43.net/images/green16x16.jpg" alt="Green Square"/> <a href="http://www.wickham43.net/">Introduction</a></td>
<td><img src="http://www.wickham43.net/images/green16x16.jpg" alt="Green Square"/> <a href="http://www.wickham43.net/contents.php">Contents</a></td>
<td><img src="http://www.wickham43.net/images/green16x16.jpg" alt="Green Square"/> <a href="http://www.wickham43.net/lists.php">Lists</a></td>
// To send HTML mail, the Content-type header must be set
$headers = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8' . "\r\n";
// Additional headers as http://php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php
$headers .= 'From: Your Name <mail@your-domain.com>' . "\r\n";
//ACTIVE mail below to $admin (you) and $email (the other person)
mail( $admin, "Feedback: $subject", "$name $email", "From: $admin>" );
$send_contact=mail("$name <$email>", "Feedback: $subject", $message, $headers );
echo "Thanks," . $name. ", I have sent you an email with the information.";
else {
echo "ERROR";

is there something wrong with this code?
