I've added an email form to my website, www.awesomespaders.com. It's linked to the Suggestion Box on this page. I've made a few changes to better suite my needs. I changed the Name to Username. I need to be able to have underscores in the Username. And what was first the Last Name, I changed to Subject. When testling this, I'm getting errors for these two. below is my htm and php code. I hope someone can help me. I've played with this for 2 weeks and getting nowhere!
