    Unhappy Contact Form Coding Help

    Hi So I have a website: www.Imicallef.com and I tried adding a contact form to it. I make 4 input boxes and gave them the instance names: name, subject, message, and email. The I made a send button with the code:

    on (release) {
    if (name eq "" or subject eq "" or message eq "" or email eq "") {
    stop();
    } else {
    loadVariablesNum("form.php", 0, "POST");
    _root.sent.gotoAndPlay(2);
    _root.box.gotoAndStop(1);


    }
    }

    on (keypress "<Tab>") {
    stop();
    }

    Then I have a clear form button with the code:

    on (release) {
    name = "";
    subject="";
    message="";
    email="";
    }

    Then I created a file in Dreamweaver in the same folder named form.php with the code:

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <title>form.php</title>
    </head>

    <body>
    $to = "micali@rpi.edu";
    $msg = "$name\n\n";
    $msg .= "$message\n\n";

    mail($to, $subject, $msg, "Message From: Online client\nReply-To: $email\n");

    ?>
    </body>
    </html>

    It all works except for two problems. The clear form button doesn't clear the form. But the bigger problem is that I don't get any emails from the contact form. Why am I not being sent the emails? And why isn't the clear button workin?

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $to 
    "micali@rpi.edu";
    $msg "$name\n\n";
    $msg .= "$message\n\n";

    mail($to$subject$msg"Message From: Online client\nReply-To: $email\n");
    ?>
    this only should be your form.php. No doctype or other html tags.
