1) You have at least one error in your HTML (I didn't check it all)
<td><input type="text" size="35" maxlength="50" name="Name"<>/td>
<td><input type="text" size="35" maxlength="50" name="Name"</td>
2) The path to your template must be a relative path -- to the script
on the server, i.e.
3) In your template, you have duplicate commands for
ESCAPE_HTML=0 (You have a typo in the first copy)
SUBJECT=Feedback and Comment.
You also have duplicate sections for OUTPUT_FORM= and MAIL_HEADER=
Also, for your TITLE= AND ADDRESS= lines to work, they must all be on
one line. Do not use line breaks or word wrap in your text editor.
Make those corrections, then let us know if you still have problems.
