PHP Contact From отправляет пустые письма при просмотре страницы

Может ли кто-нибудь помочь мне предотвратить отправку пустых писем при каждом просмотре страницы?

Вот код, который я использую.

// define variables and set to empty values
$nameErr = $emailErr = $genderErr  = "";
$name = $email = $gender = $comment =  "";

   if (empty($_POST["name"])) {
     $nameErr = "Name is required";
   } else {
     $name = test_input($_POST["name"]);
     // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
     if (!preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z ]*$/",$name)) {
       $nameErr = "Only letters and white space allowed"; 

   if (empty($_POST["email"])) {
     $emailErr = "Email is required";
   } else {
     $email = test_input($_POST["email"]);
     // check if e-mail address syntax is valid
     if (!preg_match("/([\w\-]+\@[\w\-]+\.[\w\-]+)/",$email)) {
       $emailErr = "Invalid email format";

   if (empty($_POST["comment"])) {
     $commentErr = "Comment is required";
   } else {
     $comment = test_input($_POST["comment"]);
     if (!preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z ]*$/",$comment)) {
       $commentErr = "Please leave a comment.";      

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

//create the body of the email
$body = "Name: {$_POST['name']}
\n\nEmail: {$_POST['email']}
\n\nComments: {$_POST['comment']}";
$body = wordwrap($body, 70);

// The mail function
mail('[email protected]', 'Contact Us Submission', $body, "From: {$_POST['email']}");

<p><span class="error">* required field.</span></p>
<form method="post" action="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]);?>"> 
   Name: <input type="text" name="name" class="text" value="<?php echo $name;?>">
   <span class="error">* <?php echo $nameErr;?></span>
   Email: <input type="text" name="email" class="text" value="<?php echo $email;?>">
   <span class="error">* <?php echo $emailErr;?></span>
   Comment: <textarea name="comment" rows="3" cols="20"><?php echo $comment;?></textarea>
   <span class="error">* <?php echo $commentErr;?></span><br>   
   <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" class="submit"> 
//if everything is ok, print the message:
if ($name && $email && $comment) {
    echo "<p>Thank you, <b>$name</b>, for contacting us.</p>
    <p> We will email you back at <i>$email</i> in a couple days.</p>\n";
} else { //missing form value.
    echo '<p class="error">Please go back and fill out the form again.</p>';
    return false;
