Been looking at this for Days

So ive tried and tested server fine so it cant be server issues, but when i use this i just dont receive the email at all
ive obviously misse out the to and from secs here

    $to = ""; // this is your Email address
    $from = $_POST['']; // this is the sender's Email address
    $Name = Trim(stripcslashes( $_POST['Name']));
    $Email = Trim(stripcslashes( $_POST['Email']));
    $Phone = Trim(stripcslashes( $_POST['Phone']));
    $Message = Trim(stripcslashes(  $_POST['message']));
    $How_can_we_help = $_POST['How_can_we_help'];
    $subject2 = "Copy of your form submission";
    $message = $Name . " " . $How_can_we_help . " wrote the following:" . "\n\n" . $_POST['message'];
    $message2 = "Here is a copy of your message " . $first_name . "\n\n" . $_POST['message'];

    $headers = "From:" . $from;
    $headers2 = "From:" . $to;
    @mail($from,$subject2,$message2,$headers2); // sends a copy of the message to the sender
    echo "Mail Sent. Thank you " . $first_name . ", we will contact you shortly.";
    // You can also use header('Location: thank_you.php'); to redirect to another page.

and the html:

Take out the @ before the mail so it doesn’t suppress any errors.

Then perhaps an if() statement to see how far it gets?

if(mail(......)) {
    echo 'Sent';
} else {
    echo 'Fail';

Just as a very basic check.

hey dood so whilst waiting for a reply i have already took @ off and still no joy thank you for your reply am i adding the echo to the end of the code then?

Yes so your mail line becomes:

if(mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers)) {
    echo 'Sent';
} else {
    echo 'Fail';

However looking at the code it appears that you are not actually sending $_POST[‘submit’] from the form!
Your button is:

	<button type="submit" class="btn btn-default">Send</button>

change to

	<button type="submit" name="submit" class="btn btn-default">Send</button>

well that one worked cheers buddy but still now i can receive the email but there is nothing in it and the email address i am sending from isnt working…

Basically i want it so people can enquire with a short email in order to be contacted in return…

You are almost there.

Go through your form and make sure that all the form inputs have a NAME attribute.
Otherwise they wont be referenced when you POST the form.
