Are you getting anything from comment  if you alter the $mail->Body :

$mail->Body    = $comment;

or try:

$mail->Body    = $name . ' , ' . $comment . '<br>: ' . $email . '<br>' . $text;

@ $mail->Body    = $comment;  — i get nothing.

When  $mail->Body    = $name . ' , ' . $comment . '<br>: ' . $email . '<br>' . $text; —  only name and mail

Ok, probably wont work but try changing the name of the textarea to 'enquiry'

<textarea name="enquiry" id="comment" style="margin: 0px 15px -33px 0px; width: 307px; height: 66px;"></textarea><br>

and move the variable to the start:

$enquiry = $_POST['enquiry'];

$name = $_POST['name'];

$phone = $_POST['phone'];

$email = $_POST['mail'];

$text = $_POST['message'];

Replace 'comment' with 'enquiry':

$mail->Body    = $name . ' , ' . $enquiry . '<br>: ' . $email . '<br>' . $text;

Also if you are validating the form using javascript try commenting that out as the field may be being cleared. Infact try the form on a clean page without any js files attached at all.
