Without showing us the code, we can't help you

Paste the code here (use the php formatting tags if you want it highlighted).

PHP Code:
<form method="post" action="action.php"
        <
input type="hidden" name="required" value="email,realname">

        <
table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" align=center>
            <
tr class="style3"><td colspan=2 align=center><class="style1">Booking
            
<class="style7"></td></tr>
            <
tr class="style6">

td><div align="right"><span class="style2">Your  E-Mail:</span></div></td>
              <
td><input name="email" type="Text" size=30></td></tr>
            <
tr class="style6">
              <
td><div align="right"><span class="style2">Your Name:</span></div></td>
              <
td><input name="realname" type="Text" size=30></td></tr>
                                   <
tr class="style6">
              <
td><div align="right"><span class="style2">Subject:</span></div></td>
              <
td><input name="subject" type="Text" size=30></td></tr>
            <
tr class="style6"><td colspan=2>            <span class="style2">Message:</span><span class="style7"><br>
                <
textarea name=message cols=40 rows=10></textarea>
            </
span>              <class="style7">
            </
td></tr>
            <
tr><td colspan=2 align=center><input type="submit" value="Submit" name="submit"></td></tr>
        </
table
action.php

PHP Code:
<?php
$name 
$_POST['name']; 
$email $_POST['email'];
$subject $_POST['subject'];
$message $_POST['message']; 
$my_email "mjyuke@bmts.com";
$headers .= "From: $name <$email>\r\n"
$headers .= "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n"
mail($my_email$subject$message$headers); 
?>

Some code I put together using a few different scripts.

$email = $_POST['email']; 
$subject = $_POST['subject']; 
$message = $_POST['message']; 
$my_email = "mjyuke@bmts.com"; 
$headers .= "From: $name <$email>\r\n";

I just tested your code (unaltered) on my server and it worked fine 10/10 times. It's most likely a problem on your server's end. I can't really offer much more information then that (because I don't really know what it could be).

Here's my support contact form code, it's a little hairy, but if you know what you're doing you should be able to source a working system.

http://www.pixd.com/support.phps
(view source if you don't see code, my server's a little wonky with phps files right now)

Good Luck, it's all I can really offer ya.

Try this :

<?php

$realname = $HTTP_POST_VARS[realname];
$email = $HTTP_POST_VARS[email];
$subject = $HTTP_POST_VARS[subject];
$message = $HTTP_POST_VARS[message];

$msg = "Real Name:\t$realname\n";
$msg .= "E-mail:\t$email\n";
$msg .= "Message:\t$message\n";


mail("you@urhost.com", "$subject", "$msg", "From: $realname<$email>");

echo "<H1 align=center>Thank You, $realname</H1>";
echo "<P align=center>We will contact you shortly</p>";


?>

Pretty Script by me

If none of those suggestions work, try phpmailer.

I think Hotmail blocking emails sent by servers without Reverse DNS....

Contact your host and ask about this...
