Step1:-   form.php

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>Sending email</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap.min.css" type="text/css"/>
<script src="bootstrap.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="jquery-1.11.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<div class="container" style="margin:5% auto">
<div class="row">
<div class="col-lg-4"></div>
<div class="col-lg-4" style="box-shadow:1px 1px 1px 2px #CCCCCC; border-radius:1%; padding:3%;">
<form role="form" action="email.php" method="post">
<div class="form-group">
<label for="name">Name</label>
<input type="text" name="name" class="form-control"/>
<div class="form-group">
<label for="email">Email</label>
<input type="text" name="email"  class="form-control"/>
<div class="form-group">
<label for="message">Message</label>
<textarea class="form-control" name="message" rows="5"></textarea>
<input type="submit" name="sub" value="Send" class="btn btn-primary pull-right"/>
<div class="col-lg-4"></div>
<?php echo $_REQUEST['do']; ?>

 Step2:-  email.php

    $admin = "This msg came from Mr/Ms: ".$_REQUEST['name']. "<br/>"
            . "His/Her email address is: ".$_REQUEST['email']. "<br/>"
            . "His/Her message is: ".$_REQUEST['message'];
    mail('', 'Sample subject for this example', $admin); 
    //In this example I entered "" just for the example, you write your own valid mail address. 
    //In for the sample I entered "Sample subject for this example" for this example you write your own subject line.
    header("location:form.php?do=Thanks for your valuable message. We'll contact you as soon as possible");
    header("location:form.php?do=Please try again");
