    2 page php form

    I need to pass the input/data from page 1 to page 2 and page 2 will then email the data to an email address. I found the below script for a website but it insert the data into a database. Can someone please help change the last part to emailing it? Thx.

    Page 1
    Code:
    <form method="post" action="form2.php">
        <input type="text" name="name">
        <input type="text" name="email_address">
        <input type="submit" value="Go To Step 2">
    </form>
    Page 2
    Code:
    <?php
    //let's start the session
    session_start();
    //store our posted values in the session variables
    $_SESSION['name'] = $_POST['name'];
    $_SESSION['email_address'] = $_POST['email_address'];
    ?>
    <form method="post" action="form3.php">
    <input type="radio" name="membership_type" value="Normal">
    <input type="radio" name="membership_type" value="Deluxe">
    <input type="checkbox" name="terms_and_conditions">
    <input type="submit" value="Go To Step 3">
    </form>

    Last Part
    Code:
    <?php
    //let's start our session, so we have access to stored data
        session_start();
    //let's create the query
    $insert_query = 'insert into subscriptions (
                    name,
                    email_address,
                    membership_type,
                    terms_and_conditions
                            ) values (
                    " . $_SESSION['name'] . ",
                    " . $_SESSION['email_address'] . ",
                    " . $_SESSION['membership_type'] . ",
                    " . $_SESSION['terms_and_conditions'] . "
                            );
    //let's run the query
    mysql_query($insert_query);
    ?>

    Okay,
    I found this website useful:
    http://www.addressmunger.com/contact_form_generator/

    It has a number of options. Trust me it is safe I have used it on my websites.

    P.S: The last part has mysql_query. What you need to use is the mail() function.

    I am using something similar but I have 3 pages of form data and the session data seems to drop when you go to page 3. So from page 1 to 2, no problem, but when you go to page 3 the data from page 1 is lost (and session hasn't timed out). Any thoughts?

    Wait I figured it out. I wasn't called session start before the header etc.
