PHP (+ MaterializeCSS) Contact Form Not sending message

I made a contact form using materializeCSS and php. I have it running on a localhost with this nice little program that listens to port25 so I know what's sending through. Everything sends through except the message. On my mail.php there is an error with the "message on line 3". The other data does send (echo: "thank you" shows. here's the code...

<?php $name = $_POST['name'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$message = $_POST['message'];
$formcontent = "From: $name \n Message: $message";
$recipient = "";
$subject = "Contact Form";
$mailheader = "From: $email \r\n";
mail($recipient, $subject, $formcontent, $mailheader) or die("Error!");
echo "Thank You!";

<div class="row" id="contact-row">
<form action="mail.php" method="POST" class="col s12">
<div class="row">
<div class="input-field col s12">
<input id="first_name" type="text" class="validate" name="name">
<label for="first_name">Full Name</label>
<div class="row">
<div class="input-field col s12">
<input id="email" type="text" class="validate" name="email">
<label for="email">Email</label>
<div class="row">
<div class="input-field col s12">
<textarea id="textarea1" class="materialize-textarea" type="text" name="messsage"></textarea>
<label for="textarea1">Message</label>
<input type="submit" value="Send">


In your PHP you refer to $_POST['message'], but the name of the textarea is messsage (with 3 s). That's why PHP throws an error. Correct the textarea's name to message and it'll work.

<textarea id="textarea1" class="materialize-textarea" type="text" name="message"></textarea>
