This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Using a redirect in a PHP mail form

Posted by Paula (Paula), 18 December 2007
Hi everyone

I'm trying to modify a PHP mail form script (called contactme.php) to redirect to a thank you page when the submit button is clicked.

The form script is below in its entirety - the line I'm using is:


- but I'm getting this error message:

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/sites/ in /home/sites/ on line 40

Is this something in the script, or something set by the system admin of my web host?

Any advice or solutions welcome

Thanks in advance,



       if ($_REQUEST['step'] == 1)
           $name = $_REQUEST['name'];
           $email = $_REQUEST['email'];
                 $comments = $_REQUEST['comments'];
                 $sendto = "";

           // Compose simple text message:
           $message = "Message from $name \n\n\n$comments";

           // Send message to me
           mail($sendto,"Message from website",
                        "From: $email\n".
                        "Reply-to: $email"

           // Thank the generous user
