Tell me what you actually NEED the form to do - will it be dealing with attachments? If it isn't too complicated, like simply sending information, then a much simpler script will work better for you.

all i want is a form that a user inputs there email and when they hit send it sends them and email with a picture/mp3 in it. so just a basic script. this is what ive come up with so far

$to = $_POST['email'];
$from = 'test@gmail.com';
$subject = 'Just what you ordered';

$boundary = 'Message-Boundary-' . date('YmdHis');

$headers = 'From: ' . $from . "\n";
$headers .= 'Reply-To: ' . $from . "\n";
$headers .= 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: Multipart/Mixed; boundary=' . $boundary . "\n\n";

$message = '--' . $boundary . "\n";
$message .= 'Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7BIT' . "\n";
$message .= 'Content-Type: text/html; charset=US-ASCII' . "\n\n";

$message .= 'This is the body of the message in HTML.';

$attach = false;
$arrfile = array('file1.jpg', 'file2.jpg'); //// your files here
foreach($arrfile as $f){
$file = $f;
$attach = fopen($file, 'rb');
$data = fread($attach, filesize($file));
$data = chunk_split(base64_encode($data));

$ext = strtolower(substr(strrchr($file, '.'), 1));
case 'pdf': $type = 'application/pdf'; break;
case 'exe': $type = 'application/octet-stream'; break;
case 'zip': $type = 'application/zip'; break;
case 'doc': $type = 'application/msword'; break;
case 'xls': $type = 'application/vnd.ms-excel'; break;
case 'ppt': $type = 'application/vnd.ms-powerpoint'; break;
case 'gif': $type = 'image/gif'; break;
case 'png': $type = 'image/png'; break;
case 'jpe':
case 'jpeg':
case 'jpg': $type = 'image/jpg'; break;
default: $type = 'application/force-download';

$message .= "\n\n" . '--' . $boundary . "\n";
$message .= 'Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64' . "\n";
$message .= 'Content-Type: ' . $type . '; name="' . $file . '";' . "\n";
$message .= 'Content-Disposition: inline; filename="' . $file . '"' . "\n\n" . $data;

mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
echo 'E-mail sent!';

and the form:

if (isset($_REQUEST['email']))
//if "email" is filled out, send email
//send email
$email = $_REQUEST['email'] ;
mail( "someone@example.com", "Subject: $subject",
$message, "From: $email" );
echo "Thank you for using our mail form";
//if "email" is not filled out, display the form
echo "<form method='post' action='mailform.php'>
Email: <input name='email' type='text' /><br />
<input type='submit' />

i have worked really hard and this does not work. Can you test it on your server and see if it does? This is killing me.

The php mail() function can bog a server down. Why not use swift? See http://www.swiftmailer.org
