php html email contact form

I’m having a problem getting my contact form information to arrive in the desired email account.

The email account itself if provided by my web host. It has the ability to send and receive emails.

The validation works perfectly eg when i type in incorrect/ miss out information it displays the appropriate error message.

When i put in the proper information it displays the “Thank you for contacting us. We will be in touch with you very soon” message but not email arrives in the specified email account.

Could someone please check over my code and see if there is something that I am missing?

Below are the html form and php codes.

I’d be very grateful for any help!

Try to eliminate \r from header (leave only \n). In some environment this may make problem with sending emails from your php script. If this not worked, try to switch to SMTP (you can use PEAR Mail module for example). With SMTP you can utilize Gmail account to send out emails from your script. Though, gmail limitation is 500 outgoing emails per day.
