Posts cannot contain PHP code, they get cleaned when you submit form. This is an obvious security precaution.

There are plugins that will enable you to do this.

For example: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/allow-php-in-posts-and-pages/

As an alternative to adding your PHP it may be easier to use a plugin like Contact Form 7 to create your form.
