Default Email form problem

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!

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

<form name="contactform" method="post" action="send_form_email.php">
<table width="450px">
 <td valign="top">
  <label for="name">Username *</label>
 <td valign="top">
  <input  type="text" name="username" maxlength="50" size="30">
 <td valign="top"">
  <label for="subject">Subject *</label>
 <td valign="top">
  <input  type="text" name="subject" maxlength="50" size="30">
 <td valign="top">
  <label for="email">Email *</label>
 <td valign="top">
  <input  type="text" name="email" maxlength="80" size="30">
 <td valign="top">
  <label for="comments">Comments *</label>
 <td valign="top">
  <textarea  name="comments" maxlength="1000" cols="25" rows="6"></textarea>
 <td colspan="2" style="text-align:center">
  <input type="submit" value="Submit">

        echo "We are very sorry, but there were error(s) found with the form you submitted. ";

        echo $error."<br /><br />";
