    Mime Mails

    Can anyone recomend me a decent mime mail script for php? Im running php 4 and have tried quite a few which have different outcomes on different email clients. On one or two they wouldnt show in AOL's email client and the one im running now wont show in Yahoo's email browser.

    Does anyone have a good script which they use?

    Thanks.

    Are you trying to send plain text or HTML emails?

    HTML emails. Script doesnt have to have any additional features other than HTML. No attachments required or anything.

    I think it's because mail clients don't like HTML emails because of the potential security risks. It's much easier to deal with plain-text.

    I am a really big fan of KISS - keep it simple and straightforward!

    All my auto-generated emails go out as plain text. There's a far better chance of them being correctly delivered and displayed that way.

    I know that doesn't answer your question, but I wonder why you need to send HTML emails. Can you send the same information in plain text format?

    I confess, I am a minimalist when it comes to web design! I like to see only the necessary information, neatly and clearly presented.

    I understand your point of sending plain text emails but i like the professional look and the simplistic look of a plain text email (in arial or verdana) but with the websites logo at the top of the page.

    I also use the same script for my newsletter system (which isnt as important as registration emails and new password emails) but if i assume if i can find one script to cover all clients then why not use MIME for all my emails.

    Anyone have any recommendations?
