Oops, I forgot the submit button in my original sample form. For a submit button, you just need <input type=submit value=Submit> between your form tags. Also, make sure you had an action in your opening form tag, targeting a php script to handle the form contents and send the email:

<!-- Sample form -->
<form name="myform" action="processing_script.php" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="submitted" value="true">
<td><input type="radio" name="vehicle" value="car">Car
<td><input type="radio" name="vehicle" value="truck">Truck
<td><input type="radio" name="vehicle" value="van">Van
<td colspan=3>Email:<input type="text" name="email">
<td><input type="checkbox" name="drive">Drive
<td><input type="checkbox" name="ride">Ride
<td><input type="submit" value="Send Mail">
<td><input type="reset" value="Reset">

Also, if you are using someone else's server (a free host or something), you may not have the mail() function enabled. You may be able to contact your host support and request that this feature be enabled for your domain/subdomain.

$body = "$check1 was checked\n(radio buttons' name): $radio\nComments: $comments";

$check1, $radio, and $comments are the values of the form elements (the checkbox, with name check1; the radio button group, with name of radio; and the comments textarea, with name of comments). These variables are automatically expanded to their values when used in double quotes. The \n is the newline character.

If you would like me to just write you a form and processing script, PM me with your requirements.
