<div class="title">
	    <h1>Mail Demo Page</h1>
	</div>
	<div class="mail">
		<div id='message1'>
		 <img id='close' src='images/close.png'/>
		 <h2>Mail Sent Successfully!</h2>
		 <p>We will be in touch soon.</p>
		 <img id='checkmark' src='images/check.png'/>
		</div>
	  <form action='mail.php' method="post" id='mailForm' enctype='multipart/form-data'>
	    <table>
		     <tr>
			    <td class="label"> Name : </td>
				<td><input type="text" id="name" name="name" class="form-input" placeholder='User Name'/></td>
				<td class="status"></td>
			 </tr>
			 <tr>
			    <td class="label"> E-mail : </td>
				<td><input type="email" id="email" name="email" class="form-input" placeholder='E-Mail'/></td>
				<td class="status"></td>
			 </tr>
			 <tr>
			    <td class="label"> From E-mail : </td>
				<td><input type="email" id="femail" name="femail" class="form-input" placeholder='From E-Mail'/></td>
				<td class="status"></td>
			 </tr>

			 <tr>
			    <td class="label"> Phone : </td>
				<td><input type="tel" id="phone" name="phone" class="form-input" placeholder='Phone'/></td>
				<td class="status"></td>
			 </tr>
			 <tr>
			    <td class="label"> Image : </td>
				<td><input type="file" id="image" name="image" class="form-input" placeholder='Image' accept="image/*"></td>
				<td class="status"></td>
			 </tr>

			 <tr>
			    <td class="label"> Message : </td>
				<td><textarea cols="27" rows="5" id="message" name="message" placeholder='Message'></textarea></td>
				<td class="status"></td>
			 </tr>			 
			 <tr>
			    <td colspan="2"> <input type="submit" value="Send Mail!" id='submit_btn' name="submit_btn" class="submit_btn"/></td>
			 </tr>
		</table>
	</form>
 </div>

 

Step 2:

Create style.css file and add the following css code to add styling to your html form.

* {
   background-color: #16a085;
   margin: 0;
   padding: 0;
}
@font-face{
font-family: Lobster;
src: url('Lobster.otf');
}

table{
  color: #fff;
  font-size: 20px;
}
.error_msg{
  color: red;
}
td{
  padding: 20px 0 0 0;
}
textarea{
  border-radius: 5px;
  color: #fff;
  font-size : 17px;
  font-family: Verdana;
}
textarea:focus{
  color: #FF9900;
  border: 2px solid green;
}
.mail{
  width: 500px;
  margin:0 auto; 
}
.label{
  text-align: right;
  padding-right: 20px;

}
#image{
height: 30px;
}
.title{
  font-family: Lobster;
  text-align: center;
  font-size: 35px;
  color: #FFf;
  margin: 50px 0 10px 0;
  text-decoration:underline;
}
.form-input{
   width: 275px;
   height: 40px;
   border-radius: 5px;
   color: #999;
   font-size : 17px;
   background: #fff;
   border: 2px solid #fff;
}

.form-input:focus{
   color: #3D991F;
   border: 2px solid green;
}
.submit_btn:hover{
   background: green;
   border: 2px solid green;
   color: #fff;
}

.submit_btn{
  margin-left: 140px;
  width: 280px;
  height: 45px;
  border-radius: 5px;
  color: #fff;
  background-color: #EE872A;
  font: bold 15px Verdana;
  margin-bottom: 100px;
  border: 2px solid #EE872A;
}
#message{
background: #fff;
color: #999;
border: 2px solid #fff;
}

em.error {
  background:url("unchecked.gif") no-repeat 0px 0px;
  padding-left: 16px;
  color: #ff0000;
  font-weight: bold;
}
em.success {
  background:url("checked.gif") no-repeat 0px 0px;
  padding-left: 16px;
  color: #33ff55 !important;
}

form.cmxform label.error {
	margin-left: auto;
	width: 250px;
	color: red;
}
#warning { display: none; }
.status{
   width : 250px;
   position: absolute;
}
#message1{
   display:none;	
   margin-left: 50px;
   margin-top: 100px;
   color: #fff;
   width: 400px;
   height: 100px;
   border: 2px solid #fff;
   border-radius: 10px;
   position: relative;
}
#message1 h2, #message1 p{
   text-align: center;
}
#message1 #checkmark{
   margin-left: 170px;
}
#close{
	   position: absolute;
       right: -8px;
       top: -10px;
}
.hide{
   display: none;
}

.preview{
   width: 400px;
   margin: 20px 0 50px 430px;
   border: 10px dotted orange;
}

 

now we had almost completede designing part of the mail form.

Step 3:

Add following jQuery library in your index.php file.

<script src="js/jquery-1.9.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.validate.min.js"></script>
<script src="http://malsup.github.com/jquery.form.js"></script>

 

Step 4:

I used jQuery form plugin .ajaxForm() method to send to a form data’s to mail.php file.

here is syntax.

$('form').ajaxForm({
		beforeSubmit: function() {
			// validation script goes here
	    },
	    success: function(msg) {
	        // Success message goes here
	    },
		complete: function(xhr) {
			// some logic script goes here 
		}
});

 

Following script checks form is valid or not, in the beforeSubmit callback function

var flag= $('#mailForm').valid();
if(!flag){
return false;
}

if form is not valid then it won’t allows the form to submit.

Following script hides the form and shows success message after sucessful form submission.

$("#mailForm").addClass("hide");
$("#message1").show();

Following click event hides the success message, shows the form the form as well clears user entered information in the form.

$('#close').click(function(){ 
$('#message1').hide();
$("#mailForm").removeClass("hide");
$('input[type=text],input[type=email],textarea,input[type=tel],input[type=file]').val('');
location.reload();
});

Here is full jQuerey script

<script>
(function() {
	$('form').ajaxForm({
		beforeSubmit: function() {
			//return $('#mailForm').validate().form();
			$("#mailForm").validate({
			     rules: {
					name: {
					   required: true,
					   minlength : 3
					},
					email:{ 
					   required: true,
					   email: true
					},
					phone: { 
					  required : true,
					  number:true,	
					  minlength : 10,
				      maxlength : 11
					},
					image: "required",
					message: "required",
					femail:{ 
					   required: true,
					   email: true
					}
			     },
			     messages: {
						name: {
						   required:"Please enter your name",
						   minlength: "Please enter a valid name"
						},
						email:{ 
						   required: "Please enter your email",
						   minlength: "Please enter a valid email address",
						},
						phone: { 
						   required: "Please enter your phone number",
						   minlength: "Please enter your valid phone number",
						   maxlength: "Please enter your valid phone number"
						},
						image: "Please Choose your image",
						message: "Please enter your message",
						femail: { 
						   required: "Please enter your email",
						   minlength: "Please enter a valid email address",
						}
			     },
			     debug: true,
				 errorElement: "em",
				 errorContainer: $("#warning, #summary"),
				 errorPlacement: function(error, element) {
					error.appendTo( element.parent("td").next("td") );
				 },
				 success: function(label) {
					label.text("ok!").addClass("success");
				 }	
			 });
			 var flag= $('#mailForm').valid();
			 if(!flag){
                 return false;
		     }
	    },
	    success: function(msg) {
	       alert(msg);
	       //$("#mailForm").addClass("hide");
 		   //$("#message1").show();
	    },
		complete: function(xhr) {
			$("#mailForm").addClass("hide");
			$("#message1").show();
			$('#status').html(xhr.responseText);	
		}
	}); 
	$('#close').click(function(){ 
	  $('#message1').hide();
  	  $("#mailForm").removeClass("hide");
  	  $('input[type=text],input[type=email],textarea,input[type=tel],input[type=file]').val('');
  	  location.reload();
     });
})();       
</script>

 

Step 5:

Now just follow php part coding. I am using php mail plugin to send an email with attachment.

Create mail.php file and add the following php file (class.phpmailer.php).

require 'class.phpmailer.php';

Step 6:

Now add to email ID.

$to = "Your email ID";
$mail->AddAddress($to);

Step 7:

Now get from email id and name of the user.

$mail->From = $_POST['femail'];
$mail->FromName = $_POST['name'];

Step 8:

Now add subject of the mail.

$mail->Subject = "Test Email using PHP";

Step 9:

Now get message from the html form.

$body             = "<table>
	                         <tr>
							    <th colspan='2'>This Sample Mail</th>
							 </tr>

							 <tr>
							    <td>Name :</td>
								<td>".$_POST['name']."</td>
							 </tr>

							 <tr>
							  <td>E-mail : </td>
							  <td>".$_POST['email']."</td>
							</tr>

							<tr>
							  <td>Phone : </td>
							  <td>".$_POST['phone']."</td>
							</tr>

							<tr>
							  <td>Message : </td>
							  <td>".$_POST['message']."</td>
							</tr>
	                     <table>";
	$body             = preg_replace('/\\\\/','', $body); //Strip backslashes
	$mail->MsgHTML($body);

 

Step 10:

Finally get the attachment and send it.

$mail->AddAttachment($_FILES['image']['tmp_name'],
$_FILES['image']['name']);

$mail->IsHTML(true); // send as HTML

$mail->Send();
echo 'Message has been sent.';

Here is the full php source code.

<?php
/**
* Simple example script using PHPMailer with exceptions enabled
* @package phpmailer
* @version $Id$
*/

require 'class.phpmailer.php';

try {
    $mail = new PHPMailer(true); //New instance, with exceptions enabled

    $to = $_POST['email'];
	$mail->AddAddress($to);
	$mail->From       = $_POST['femail'];
    $mail->FromName   = $_POST['name'];
	$mail->Subject  = "Test Email using PHP";

	$body             = "<table>
	                         <tr>
							    <th colspan='2'>This Sample Mail</th>
							 </tr>

							 <tr>
							    <td style='font-weight:bold'>Name :</td>
								<td>".$_POST['name']."</td>
							 </tr>

							 <tr>
							  <td style='font-weight:bold'>E-mail : </td>
							  <td>".$_POST['email']."</td>
							</tr>

							<tr>
							  <td style='font-weight:bold'>Phone : </td>
							  <td>".$_POST['phone']."</td>
							</tr>

							<tr>
							  <td style='font-weight:bold'>Message : </td>
							  <td>".$_POST['message']."</td>
							</tr>
	                     <table>";
	$body             = preg_replace('/\\\\/','', $body); //Strip backslashes
	$mail->MsgHTML($body);

	$mail->IsSMTP();                           // tell the class to use SMTP
	$mail->SMTPAuth   = true;                  // enable SMTP authentication
	$mail->Port       = 25;                    // set the SMTP server port
	//$mail->Host       = "mail.yourdomain.com"; // SMTP server
	//$mail->Username   = "name@domain.com";     // SMTP server username
	//$mail->Password   = "password";            // SMTP server password

	$mail->IsSendmail();  // tell the class to use Sendmail
	$mail->AddReplyTo("admin@smarttutorials.net");
	$mail->AltBody    = "To view the message, please use an HTML compatible email viewer!"; // optional, comment out and test
	$mail->WordWrap   = 80; // set word wrap

	$mail->AddAttachment($_FILES['image']['tmp_name'],
                         $_FILES['image']['name']);
	$mail->IsHTML(true); // send as HTML
	$mail->Send();
	echo 'Message has been sent.';
} catch (phpmailerException $e) {
	echo $e->errorMessage();
}
?>

  • Thomas Lambert

    i have a trouble…this is my error..what can i do for this..looking for reply only…………

    Could not execute: /var/qmail/bin/sendmail

  • Thomas Lambert

    help me plsssssssss

  • muni

    Sorry for the delay… check the following two things..

    Are you sure the path /var/qmail/bin/sendmail is correct?

    If yes, check also the permissions for sendmail are set correctly. Because if you are shared hosting by default they won’t provide support to sendmail. Create a support ticket & ask your host about it
