PHP Conatct form not working in only IE


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I have created a contact form for a website. It will send the mail no problem in Firefox and Safari. However, it will not send in IE. The url should go to the contactthanks.html page but instead it goes to the www.mysite.com/mailer.php page.


Can anyone help me? I can't seem to find an answer anywere online, but then I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong! My code is below. Thanks so much in advance for any help! :)


Here is my PHP:



if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {


$from = 'My Site';

$to = "me@mysite.com";

$subject = "Contact Form";

$name_field = $_POST['name'];

$email_field = $_POST['email'];

$message = $_POST['message'];


$body = "From: $name_field\n E-Mail: $email_field\n Message:\n $message";


mail($to, $subject, $body);

header( "Location: http://www.mysite.com/contactthanks.html\");



} else {


echo "thankyou!";






Here is my HTML:








Email Address








:) Thankyou!

As a matter of interest, would the header code work if it wasn't an absolute url; but a variable; in other words like:-

header( "Location: $contactthanks");


where there is a variable

$contactthanks = 'contactthanks.html' ;


because that's what I do and my forms work in IE.
