    I cut and pasted your code and it doesn't throw the error for me. It says "An email has been successfully sent!"

    For me, an 'unexpected T_STRING' error often means that I'm missing a semi-colon ";" on the line before the error. But, like I said, I don't get the error for your script. Are there any required or included files before line 48 but not shown in the script above?
