Dear Sir,

I am sending a simple mail.. but it's not sending. When I use simple mail function without variable direct text then it's sending properly but when I use a variable then it's not sending mail and not giving any error.



please suggest me help.

What I have tried:

working...

mail("myemail@gmail.com","something","something");


NOT Working -----------------------
All variables are properly received and printing. but mail not sending..

<?php

	$name = $_POST['name'];
	$email = $_POST['email'];
	$address = $_POST['address'];
	$contact = $_POST['contact'];
	$city = $_POST['city'];
	$comment = $_POST['comment'];

echo $name . " | " . $email . " | " . $address . " | " . $contact . " | " .$city . " | " . $comment;

$subject = 'Hi We have a message from ' . $name;

echo $subject;

mail("naveenroy001@gmail.com",$subject,"asdfsadfasdf");
?>

Just in case FYI: Mail doesn't work (usually) on a localserver. You need a domain with available services for mail to work. SMTP/POP server, something like that. Not sure for certain. All competitive host would have mail working.

Does $name contain non ASCII characters?

Then the subject must be encoded as noted in the PHP: mail - Manual[^]:
Quote:
Caution Subject must satisfy » RFC 2047[^].

Example to create an encoded subject string:
PHP
$encoded_subject = "=?UTF-8?Q?".quoted_printable_encode($subject)."?="
