Whats was the problem as i have written it?
Your solution is the same as mine except the fact that you assign
values and statements into variables.
I tried it but iam getting an Internal Server Error.

In my original question can you explain to me what the meaning of the
following error is?

********************************************
mail = None, comment = None
TypeError: iterable argument required
      args = ('iterable argument required',)
*********************************************

Also i noticed that if i append a query string in the end of a url
with the varibble mail attached like

http://superhost.gr/hosting.html?mail=test

then page hosting.html does load without any problem.

If i remove the query string from the ned of the URL then i'am getting
the error message i posted.

So its not that the if condition is wrong but something happens with
the form variable 'mail' .....
