Redirect

P: n/a
Could someone please help me. I am a newbie at PHP. I downloaded formail.php
Version 5.0 from Jacks scripts( http://www.dtheatre.com/scripts/ )and
changed the required areas to my email address and the domain server
address. (these changes were in the $recipient and $referers section)
I have set up the form and can get the form to email me the results.

I have two main problems.
The first one is that I am trying to get the form to go to a page that I
created "thankyou.htm" once the user presses the submit button. At the
moment it goes to the success default page. I have put a redirect in the
html code but it doesn't seem to get recognised.

The second problem I have is that if a user fails to put any of the required
fields in the form still goes to the success default page.

I have listed my html code below or you can view it via
www.desthealth.com/maillist.htm
<FORM ACTION="formmail.php" METHOD=POST name="maillist" id="maillist">
<input type=hidden name="recipient" value="te**@desthealth.com">
<input type=hidden name="subject" value="Mailing List">
<input type=hidden name="redirect"
value="http://desthealth/thankyou.htm">
<input type=hidden name="missing_fields_redirect"
value="http://desthealth.com/error.htm">
<input type=text name="name">
<input name="required" type=hidden value="name,email,phone_no">

formail.php code

You should hardcode a redirect into your php.

Just go:
header('Location: ' . $url);

This will change the location of the webbrowser using the HTTP header.
