php contact form

I am going through the videos on php forms, and I am trying them on my end, and instead of showing any variables after I click send on the form it says array(0) { } any thoughts?

EDIT: I found what my problem was.. I forgot to put name="name", "Email" etc.. inside the <input> tag in case someone else has encountered this issue, this is how i solved it.

Emmanuel San Miguel just to piggyback off of your comment if you use MAMP or MAMP Pro on a local machine and you're testing a contact form it will not work. You have to have this on a live server to get the messages to send. Just an fyi - something I ran into during my buildout phase a few months ago.
