I'm trying to find a solution to my php contact form. It seems I cannot get the form to send to my email address and I need some help please.

This is my contact form:-
<h3>Drop a line</h3>

<form action="#" id="contact_form">

<input type="text" id="name" value="Your name" />

<input type="email" id="email" value="Your e-mail" />

<div class="clearfix"></div>

<div class="textarea"><textarea cols="30" id="comment" rows="10"></textarea></div>

<input type="submit" value="Submit" />

<span class="status"></span>

<script src="js/script.js"></script>

and this is the php within script.js:-
/* Contact form */
$('#contact_form').submit(function () {
type: 'POST',
url: 'contact.php',
data: {
name: $('#contact_form input[type=text]').val(),
email: $("#contact_form input[type=email]").val(),
text: $("#contact_form textarea").val()
success: function(data) {
if ( data == 'sent' ) {
$('#contact_form .status').html('Your message is sent!');
} else if ( data == 'invalid' ) {
$('#contact_form .status').html('Your name, email or message is invalid.');
} else {
$('#contact_form .status').html('Your message could not be sent.');
error: function () {
$('#contact_form .status').html('Your message could not be sent.');
return false;
What do I need in contact.php in order to have the form information sent to my email address?
