$email = $_POST['email'];
$message = $_POST['message'];
$formcontent="From: $name n Message: $message";
$recipient = "Your Target Email Address";
$subject = "Contact Form";
$mailheader = "From: $email rn";
mail($recipient, $subject, $formcontent, $mailheader) or die("Error!");
 Open a notepad and save the code as mail.php
