Submit-button error

I made a website using HTML and some javascript. I tried to make a contact form with PHP, but something goes wrong when submitting and I don't understand why.
I followed a tutorial and can't see any mistakes (first time using PHP, so there might be a lot I can't see).

Here is the HTML-code and PHP-file. I also uploaded the original, in case you prefer to open it that way..

The following error message appears
