View Full Version : Mail Function showing header info

07-26-2007, 07:21 AM
I am using a standard mail function within an AMFPHP Class that i have used many times. Now, when i use it it does not work right. When a mail is sent, the $header info and html shows in the email.

I would like to know why the header info is showing in the email, along with why the HTML code is not rendering. I will post examples of code and result. Please provide a solution b4 i pull my hair out.

Running PHP 4.3.9 on Apache

function sendMail($vars) {

$email = "visitor@site.com";

$headers ="MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$headers .= "From: {$email}\r\n";
$headers .= "Return-Path: {$email}\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: {$email}\n";
$headers .= "Message-Id: <".time()."@".$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'].">\n";
$headers .= "X-Mailer: php-mail-function-0.2\n";

$content = "<b>test</b>";

mail("email@example.com", "Subject", $content, $headers);

This is the email that is returned.

From: visitor@site.com
Reply-To: visitor@site.com
Message-Id: <1185426433@www.example.com>
X-Mailer: php-mail-function-0.2

Were you testing by sending to a GMail account? I'm pretty sure they are one of the sites that appends /r to the before any /n.
