Thanks GIOVANNI, I Need To Get This Yo Work. :-)

Glad I could help, if you could accept my answer though that would be great.

Crystal, that error that you are getting is coming from the fact that you have

require("includes/phpmailer/class.phpmailer.php");

twice in your script.

There are two ways you can fix this,

  1. You can user require_once() instead of require() or include(). require_once() first checks to see if that file has already been loaded and if not, loads it. This is a crucial piece as it stops files from being loaded more than once and colliding, which is exactly what is happening here.
  2. If you decide that require_once() is not for you, you must make sure that you are never require()ing or include()ing any file more that once.

Cheers!

P.S. I noticed you are also declaring $mail twice, in this case, it's not doing any harm but it is something that could trip you up in the future.

Require Once It Is I Have A Question Though I Need To Send An Email and This Is The phpmailer/Contact-Thanks.php and The Praise Report Form That Needs To Be Sent. I Gon't Know How To Align The Two To Make It Work.

After coming across another question of yours about this. What you are suffering from is the fact that in your script $to and $body have no values assigned to them. Looking at your form, I can tell you that before you actually use $to you want to assign the email that was sent from the form. Since you are using post (good) your will want to do this

$to = $_POST['Email'];

somewhere before this line

$mail->AddAddress($to);

for $body, you need to assign what the email itself is going to say. Since you are sending the email as html you can use any properly formatted html like so

$body = "<b>Check out this awesome email</b>";

again this needs to be declared before you actually use the $body variable

That should take care of the errors coming from these files.
