They want you to use this script to send mails:

But then I dont get any messages from my visitors but the message I wrote in the script.

the "localhost" error is caused by you testing this script on your own computer. Try this script on your online server and it should resolve this.
(your localhost does not come equipt with a mail server).

As for the other information, could you post the sendmail.php header info?

The FAQ at your web hosting company contains two pieces of information -

The SMTP host setting (which your code in the first post is not specifically setting, so it is using the default "localhost", and there is no SMTP server at that host name) needs to be something like "mail.yourdoman.com"

The second piece of information is that you need to use authentication against one of your mail boxes on the mail server. The PHP mail(...) function cannot do authentication. It is necessary to use a script that opens a socket connection to the mail server, which is what the phpmailer class code in the FAQ will do.
