Hi, Please help me. I'm not sure what is wrong with this code that it always go straight to "Something went wrong. Please try again." error although I am sure I input correct details in the fields. :help: :help:

<?php

// Replace this with your own email address
$siteOwnersEmail = 'recepient@gmail.com';


if($_POST) {

$name = trim(stripslashes($_POST['contactName']));
$email = trim(stripslashes($_POST['contactEmail']));
$subject = trim(stripslashes($_POST['contactSubject']));
$contact_message = trim(stripslashes($_POST['contactMessage']));

// Check Name
if (strlen($name) < 2) {
$error['name'] = "Please enter your name.";
}
// Check Email
if (!preg_match('/^[a-z0-9&\'\.\-_\+]+@[a-z0-9\-]+\.([a-z0-9\-]+\.)*+[a-z]{2}/is', $email)) {
$error['email'] = "Please enter a valid email address.";
}
// Check Message
if (strlen($contact_message) < 15) {
$error['message'] = "Please enter your message. It should have at least 15 characters.";
}
// Subject
if ($subject == '') { $subject = "Contact Form Submission"; }


// Set Message
$message .= "Email from: " . $name . "<br />";
$message .= "Email address: " . $email . "<br />";
$message .= "Message: <br />";
$message .= $contact_message;
$message .= "<br /> ----- <br /> This email was sent from your site's contact form. <br />";

// Set From: header
$from = $name . " <" . $email . ">";

// Email Headers
$headers = "From: " . $from . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: ". $email . "\r\n";
$headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1\r\n";


if (!$error) {

ini_set("sendmail_from", $siteOwnersEmail); // for windows server
$mail = mail($siteOwnersEmail, $subject, $message, $headers);

if ($mail) { echo "Thank you. We will keep in touch to you soon!"; }
else { echo "Something went wrong. Please try again."; }

} # end if - no validation error

else {

$response = (isset($error['name'])) ? $error['name'] . "<br /> \n" : null;
$response .= (isset($error['email'])) ? $error['email'] . "<br /> \n" : null;
$response .= (isset($error['message'])) ? $error['message'] . "<br />" : null;

echo $response;

} # end if - there was a validation error

}

?>

try a wrapper like PHPMailer that shows detailed errors.
