    Hello:

    I just joined so still wet behind the ears. I can read and tweak code, but I'm no programmer.

    I've been using a PHP script to create a contact form, display a message on Send and to send html email.

    script begins with:
    Code:
    <?
                function SafeHTML($string) {
    	        $string = stripslashes($string);
    	        $string = htmlspecialchars($string);
    	        return nl2br($string);
                }
                function ValidateEmail($Email){
    	        $result = ereg('^[a-zA-Z0-9_\.\-]+@[a-zA-Z0-9\-]+\.[a-zA-Z0-9\-\.]+$', $Email);
    	        if ($result){
    		    return true;
    	        } else {
    		    return false;
                }
                }
                $subject = $_POST['subject'];
                $subject = SafeHTML($subject);
                $name = $_POST['name'];
                $name = SafeHTML($name);
                $email = $_POST['email'];
                $telephone = $_POST['telephone'];
                $telephone = SafeHTML($telephone);
                $message = $_POST['message'];
                $message = SafeHTML($message);
                $contact = $_POST['contact'];
                $contact = SafeHTML($contact);
    
                switch($_GET[action]) {
    	        case "check";
    	        if(strlen($subject) > 0 && strlen($name) > 0 && strlen($telephone) > 0 && strlen($email) > 0 && strlen($message) > 0 && !strstr($message, "http") && !strstr($message, "href") && ValidateEmail($email) == true) {
    		    $body=
    followed with html email format

    then
    Code:
    ;
    		    $headers = "From: $name <$email>\r\n";
    		    $headers.="Content-type: text/html\r\n";
    		    mail("client name <[email protected]>","New email from your website",$body, $headers);
    		    print "<div class='thanks'><p>Thank you for your email, <strong>$name</strong>.</p>
    		    </div>";	
                } else {
     	        print "<p class='star'><strong>You did not fill out all the required fields ( marked with * ) or you have entered an invalid email address. Please check the form and resubmit</strong></p>";
    	            include("contactform.php");
                }
     	        break;
    	        default:
    		        include("contactform.php");
    	        break;
                }
                ?>
    How do I add a conditional statement in the $headers mail part to redirect mail based subject?

    Any assistance is much appreciated. thank you.
    kp

    Do you mean something like this?

    PHP:
    if(stristr($subject'blabla') === FALSE) {
        
    // string not found in subject
        
    $headers = ...;
    } else {
       
    // string found in subject
       
    $headers = ...;
    }

    edirect mail based on subject line

    Thank you so much for replying.

    Actually, falko, the subject will be a drop down, but of the the options is for solicitation. if chosen, i want the email to go to my junk folder immediately.

    but maybe the code you provided can still work if i make the change below?

    Code:
    if(stristr($subject, 'blabla') === TRUE) {
        // string not found in subject
        $headers = <[email protected]>;
    } else {
       // string found in subject
       $headers =  <[email protected]>;

    Use
    PHP:
    if(stristr($subject'blabla') === TRUE) {
        
    // string not found in subject
        
    $to_address '[email protected]';
    } else {
       
    // string found in subject
       
    $to_address =  '[email protected]';
    }
    and then pass $to_address as the first parameter to PHP's mail() function.
