New user using the script to process an existing form  (See more user questions)

Hi .

The script won't allow a blank form to be sent, that's normal. That said,
the form you showed me had hidden values in it, so the script would not
reject it as being blank. Normally you might get a problem with this if
there are validation errors on the form. I notice yours only has one error
on it. Maybe better to fix it, just to be sure.

I can't speak for hosts and their setup. Better just to try the free script
on the setup first, or ask the host if the PHP mail() function is enabled
and working, which is required for the script to work.

Please don't purchase the Pro version until you have got the free version
working sweetly. Due to the nature of the product, I can't do refunds.

Best wishes.

>>
