      Ok, I wanted to add more boxes within this and I got this free off the internet.  What needs to match when I add another box let's say "phone number"


      Here's the mail part on the html page.  


      <head><title>Mail sender</title></head>


      <form action="mail.php" method="POST">


      <input type="text" name="subject" size=40>

      <p><b>Please fill out your email/address/phone number</b><br>

      <textarea cols=40 rows=10 name="message"></textarea>

      <p><input type="submit" value=" Send ">











      <head><title>Support a Hero</title></head>




      /* All form fields are automatically passed to the PHP script through the array $HTTP_POST_VARS. */

      $email = 'hero@westonandjodi.com';

      $subject = $HTTP_POST_VARS['subject'];

      $message = $HTTP_POST_VARS['message'];


      /* PHP form validation: the script checks that the Email field contains a valid email address and the Subject field isn't empty. preg_match performs a regular expression match. It's a very powerful PHP function to validate form fields and other strings - see PHP manual for details. */

      if (!preg_match("/\w+([-+.]\w+)*@\w+([-.]\w+)*\.\w+([-.]\w+)*/", $email)) {

        echo "<h4>Invalid email address</h4>";

        echo "<a href='javascript:history.back(1);'>Back</a>";

      } elseif ($subject == "") {

        echo "<h4>No subject</h4>";

        echo "<a href='javascript:history.back(1);'>Back</a>";



      /* Sends the mail and outputs the "Thank you" string if the mail is successfully sent, or the error string otherwise. */

      elseif (mail($email,$subject,$message)) {

        echo "<h4>Thank you for sending email</h4>";

      } else {

        echo "<h4>Can't send email to $email</h4>";
