    Angry HELP! PHP Form not working completely but partially!!!

    So the title says it all. I have a simple PHP Form on my website. When a user fills out the form part of it submits, except two of the questions on the form ( service_requested AND preferred_datetime) The other areas work. What is wrong with my code???

    $to = ""; // this is your Email address
    $from = $_POST['email']; // this is the sender's Email address
    $first_name = $_POST['first_name'];
    $email_address = $_POST['email_address'];
    $phone_number = $_POST['phone_number'];
    $service_requested = $_POST['service_req'];
    $preferred_datetime = $_POST['preferred_datetime'];
    $subject = "Appointment Request";
    $subject2 = "Copy of your Appointment Request";
    $message = $first_name . " " . $email_address . " " . $phone_number . " " . $service_requested . " " . $preferred_datetime . "wrote the following:" . "\n\n" . $_POST['message'];
    $message2 = "Here is a copy of your message " . $first_name . "\n\n" . $_POST['message'];

    $headers = "From:" . $from;
    $headers2 = "From:" . $to;
    mail($from,$subject2,$message2,$headers2); // sends a copy of the message to the sender
    header('Location: thankyou.html');
    // You can also use header('Location: thankyou.html'); to redirect to another page.
    // You cannot use header and echo together. It's one or the other.

    The two things in red MUST be exactly the same spelling as the names in your HTML form (which you didn't show us).

    $service_requested = $_POST['service_req'];
    $preferred_datetime = $_POST['preferred_datetime'];

    That's the best I can answer without enough information given.
