Hello, I'm still working with the phpMailer issue. I can't get it send the email, I thought I saw that since the mail server we are using is the local server, I use the below line:
$mail->Host = "localhost";

It also displays the below errors at the bottom of the page, even before the form fields are entered and the submit button is clicked.

Message could not be sent.
Mailer Error: Message body empty

Is the mail server for drill4waterequipmentleasing.com on the same server that hosts the web page? I've been using that article, but must not be understanding something. Could you look at my page and see if anything jumps out at you?

Hello bartonboley@yahoo.com,

Thank you for your question. As long as the PHP script that you are using is on the same server, localhost is correct.
$mail->Host = "localhost";

I recommend following our article titled How do I use phpMailer to Send Email through PHP, since it provides a successful example.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
