Redirect a contact from after submit

I have a contact.php type form that is working (so far) how I would like, however, when the form is submitted, it doesn't redirect to the page I'm telling it to redirect to. Internet searches seem to have a very unanimous and simple solution, which is to write this code after the mail("...") code:

header("Location: http://www.example.com/thankyou.html");

This I have done but it just won't redirect. Hoping for some suggestions. Here is the PHP code of my form:

[code]
$nameErr = $emailErr = $monthErr = "";
$name = $email = $month = $headers = $to =$subject = $body = "";

if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
$name = test_input($_POST["name"]);
$email = test_input($_POST["email"]);
$month = test_input($_POST["month"]);
$to = "information@purden.com";
$headers = "From: $email \r\n";
$subject = "Rentals Reservation Request";
$body .= "\r\n Name: " . $name;
$body .= "\r\n Email: " . $email;
$body .= "\r\n Month: " . $month;

}

function test_input($data){
$data = trim($data);
$data = stripslashes($data);
$data = htmlspecialchars($data);
return $data;

}

if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
if (empty($_POST["name"])) {
$nameErr = "<font color='red'>Name is required</font>";
$error .= "<li>Name is required. </li>";
} else {
$name = test_input($_POST["name"]);

}
if (empty($_POST["email"])) {
$emailErr = "<font color='red'>Email is required</font>";
$error .= "<li>Email is required.</li>";
} else {
$email = test_input($_POST["email"]);
}

if (empty($_POST["month"])) {
$monthErr = "Enter a month from the drop-down list";
$error .= "<li>Month is required.</li>";
} else {
$month = test_input($_POST["month"]);

}

$name = test_input($_POST["name"]);
if (!preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z-' ]*$/",$name)) {
$nameErr = "<font color='red'>Only letters and spaces allowed";
}

$email = test_input($_POST["email"]);
if (!filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)) {
$emailErr = "<font color='red'>Invalid email format";
$error .= "<li>Invalid email format. </li>";

echo '<p class="error"><strong>Your message was NOT sent<br/> The following error(s) occurred:</strong><br/>'. '<ul>' . $error . '</ul>' . '</p>';

} else {

mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers);
header("Location: http://www.mywebsite.com/rentals_reservation_thankyou.html");

}
}

The easiest way would be to set the action to the page you want to redirect to, and put the PHP onto that page instead.

Hello!

Now after submit the page go up in the header, wich is the code for have the page keep in the position of the form, so a user can read the status message?

Or a code to redirect to another page?

You could probably put the status message on the top of the page, maybe, as simple workaround. Otherwise you could write out a javascript in your error message which also scrolls to it, which is a bit more difficult.

For redirecting to another page, do it like I wrote above:
