I want to sent a webpage as the content of mail.
I got the source code of the webpage and send it as the mail content of the PHP mail function.
And when i check my inbox, i get all the content(text, alignment ans so on) fine EXPECT that it does not show the images, coz the image urls are replaced by some other data.

Want guidance, Can anyone tell why is the url getting changed???

Thx in advance.

been my experience that most image problems in emails are due to your email settings. however, you might also want to make sure that your code is using full url addresses, not just relative.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
