Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: PHP - HTML Email and Mime Types?

    PHP - HTML Email and Mime Types?

    I have a php script which should be sending a HTML formatted email. I currently have it set up like so:

    PHP Code:
            $email_sender "Broker King";
    $email_subject "Thank You For Playing Pac-Mini!";        
    $message "<html>
              <img src='http://www.duncanhall.net/pacmini/logo.jpg' />
              <font face='tahoma' size='2'>
                You managed to complete the game and scored <b>
    $score</b> with a time of <b>$time</b> - well done! 
                Thanks again for playing, and remember - you can play and submit your score as many times as you like.
                <b>BROKER KING<b>
    $headers "MIME-Version: 1.0rn";
    $headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1rn";
    $headers  .= "From: $email_sender\r\n";
    Hotmail manages to render this exactly as I would like, but Outlook and Yahoo mail simply spit out the HTML tags as plain text. Does anyone know how I can rectify this, or know of a better solution?

    Fixed, I was missing the slashes for new lines at the end of the headers. I should really stop replying to myself.
