Contact form doesn't send if there is a space in name


I am reviewing a contact form for a website, but right now it doesn't want to send if in the sender name (like "John Smith") have space, it only sends if it's just a single word ("John"). Where could the problem be, I don't know anything about .php, but I am finding my way around.

EDIT: Ok, here is the code

<?php function sendemail($toname, $toemail, $fromname, $fromemail, $subject, $message, $type = "plain", $cc = "", $bcc = "") { require_once "class.phpmailer.php"; $mail = new PHPMailer(); $mail->IsMAIL(); $mail->CharSet = "UTF-8"; $mail->From = $fromemail; $mail->FromName = $fromname; $mail->AddAddress($toemail, $toname); $mail->AddReplyTo($fromemail, $fromname); if ($cc) { $cc = explode(", ", $cc); foreach ($cc as $ccaddress) { $mail->AddCC($ccaddress); } } if ($bcc) { $bcc = explode(", ", $bcc); foreach ($bcc as $bccaddress) { $mail->AddBCC($bccaddress); } } if ($type == "plain") { $mail->IsHTML(false); } else { $mail->IsHTML(true); $mail->Subject = $subject; $mail->Body = $message; if(!$mail->Send()) { $mail->ErrorInfo; $mail->ClearAllRecipients(); $mail->ClearReplyTos(); return false; } else { $mail->ClearAllRecipients(); $mail->ClearReplyTos(); return true; } } } function descript($text, $striptags = true) { // Convert problematic ascii characters to their true values $search = array("40","41","58","65","66","67","68","69","70", "71","72","73","74","75","76","77","78","79","80","81", "82","83","84","85","86","87","88","89","90","97","98", "99","100","101","102","103","104","105","106","107", "108","109","110","111","112","113","114","115","116", "117","118","119","120","121","122" ); $replace = array("(",")",":","a","b","c","d","e","f","g","h", "i","j","k","l","m","n","o","p","q","r","s","t","u", "v","w","x","y","z","a","b","c","d","e","f","g","h", "i","j","k","l","m","n","o","p","q","r","s","t","u", "v","w","x","y","z" ); $entities = count($search); for ($i=0; $i < $entities; $i++) { $text = preg_replace("#(&\#)(0*".$search[$i]."+);*#si", $replace[$i], $text); } $text = preg_replace('#(&\#x)([0-9A-F]+);*#si', "", $text); $text = preg_replace('#(<[^>]+[/\"\'\s])(onmouseover|onmousedown|onmouseup|onmouseout|onmousemove|ondblclick|onfocus|onload|xmlns)[^>]*>#iU', ">", $text); $text = preg_replace('#([a-z]*)=([\`\'\"]*)script:#iU', '$1=$2nojscript...', $text); $text = preg_replace('#([a-z]*)=([\`\'\"]*)javascript:#iU', '$1=$2nojavascript...', $text); $text = preg_replace('#([a-z]*)=([\'\"]*)vbscript:#iU', '$1=$2novbscript...', $text); $text = preg_replace('#(<[^>]+)style=([\`\'\"]*).*expression\([^>]*>#iU', "$1>", $text); $text = preg_replace('#(<[^>]+)style=([\`\'\"]*).*behaviour\([^>]*>#iU', "$1>", $text); if ($striptags) { do { $thistext = $text; $text = preg_replace('#</*(applet|meta|xml|blink|link|style|script|embed|object|iframe|frame|frameset|ilayer|layer|bgsound|title|base)[^>]*>#i', "", $text); } while ($thistext != $text); } return $text; } $name=0; $telefon=0; $sender=0; $syobshtenie=0; $ename=0; $etelefon=0; $esender=0; $esyobshtenie=0; if($_POST['name']){ $name = "Запитване от ".$_POST['name']; } else { $name=1; $ename=1; } if($_POST['sender']){ $sender = $_POST['sender']; if(!eregi("^[_a-z0-9-]+(\.[_a-z0-9-]+)*@[a-z0-9-]+(\.[a-z0-9-]+)*(\.[a-z]{2,3})$", $sender)) { $sender="Email"; } } else { $sender=1; $esender=1; } if($_POST['telefon']){ $telefon = $_POST['telefon']; } if($_POST['zapitvane']){ $zapitvane = $_POST['zapitvane']; $syobshtenie = "

In the code you post you call:

sendemail("VillaDes", "info@konsumator.com", "", $sender, $name, $syobshtenie, "", "", "");

Your sendemail function accepts:

sendemail($toname, $toemail, $fromname, $fromemail, $subject, $message

So $fromname will be used as the subject of your e-mail and formname will be empty. class.phpmailer.php should handle subjects with spaces, so i don't think this will be the problem. When you use $name as $fromemail spaces will be a problem maybe. (name without spaces can be a local mailbox??).

Beside all this you don't need the class.phpmailer.php to send your email. Use the default mail function: <a href="http://php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php" rel="nofollow">http://php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php</a>

$headers = 'From: "'.$fromemail.'" <'.$fromname.'>' . "\r\n" . 'Reply-To: "'.$fromname.'" <'.$fromemail.'>' . "\r\n" . 'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion(); mail('"VillaDes" <info@konsumator.com>',$syobshtenie, "", $headers);
