    Can mail() send an HMTL and a TEXT at the same time?

    Can mail() send an HMTL and a TEXT at the same time?

    So if the user can only get text mail, they would see the text?

    (Where do yo click text only in your email )

    Thanks

    YUP, I needed to do mime mail with a bunch of headers

    <?


    $from_name = "Sender Name";
    $from_email = "sender@server.ca";
    $to_name = "Recipient Name";
    $to_email = "recipient@server.ca";
    $subject = "Fantastic Subject";
    // headers need to be in the correct order...
    $headers = "From: $from_name<$from_email>\n";
    $headers .= "Reply-To: <$from_email>\n";
    $headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";
    // the following must be one line (post width too small)
    $headers .= "Content-Type: multipart/related;
    type=\"multipart/alternative\"; boundary=\"----
    =MIME_BOUNDRY_main_message\"\n";
    //
    $headers .= "X-Sender: $from_name<$from_email>\n";
    $headers .= "X-Mailer: PHP4\n"; //mailer
    $headers .= "X-Priority: 3\n"; //1 UrgentMessage, 3 Normal
    $headers .= "Return-Path: <$from_email>\n";
    $headers .= "This is a multi-part message in MIME format.\n";
    $headers .= "------=MIME_BOUNDRY_main_message \n";
    $headers .= "Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=\"----=MIME_BOUNDRY_message_parts\"\n";
    //plaintext section begins
    $message = "------=MIME_BOUNDRY_message_parts\n";
    $message .= "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=\"iso-8859-1\"\n";
    $message .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable\n";
    $message .= "\n";
    // your text goes here
    $message .= "blah blah -- plaintext version of the message\n";
    $message .= "\n";
    // html section begins
    $message .= "------=MIME_BOUNDRY_message_parts\n";
    $message .= "Content-Type: text/html;\n charset=\"iso-8859-1\"\n";
    $message .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable\n";
    $message .= "\n";
    // your html goes here -- It didn't appear properly without
    // the weird markup that outlook added after sending
    $message .= "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN\">\n";
    $message .= "<HTML><BODY>\n";
    $message .= "blah blah -- html version of the message\n";
    // look ma, I'm referencing an img attachment (see below)
    // watch out for weird markup!!!
    $message .= "<IMG src=3D\"cid:some_picture\">\n";
    $message .= "</BODY></HTML>\n";
    $message .= "\n";
    // this ends the message part
    $message .= "------=MIME_BOUNDRY_message_parts--\n";
    $message .= "\n";
    // now we add attachments (images, etc)
    $message .= "------=MIME_BOUNDRY_main_message\n";
    $message .= "Content-Type: image/gif; \n name=\"some_picture.gif\"\n";
    $message .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\n";
    $message .= "Content-ID: <some_picture>\n";
    $message .= "\n";
    \\ (truncated for space)
    $message .= "R0lGODlheAAZAKIHAMTExCQkJJOTk\n";
    $message .= "eLo7wzDKSatVQ5R3u7dDUUjcZ34D\n";
    $message .= "\n";
    // etc...etc...etc...
    //message ends
    $message .= "------=MIME_BOUNDRY_main_message--\n";
    // send the message :-)
    mail("$to_name<$to_email>", $subject, $message, $headers);


    ?>
