Hi

 

I am trying to send html emails to users when they register on a site.

 

I am using the code below

<?php
//email settings
$to=$_POST['user_name'];
$from="Trade-Bidz <registrations@trade-bidz.co.uk>";
$subject = "Trade-Bidz Registration Confirmation";
$content = "Hello ".$_POST['contact_name']."<p>Welcome to <a href=\"http://www.trade-bidz.co.uk\">Trade-Bidz</a>.  Add us to your Favourite and make it quicker to sell your part exchanges.</p><p>Your Login details are below, you will need these to be able to sell your vehicles and to be able to place bids on other vehicles</p>
<p>Email Address:".$_POST['user_name']."<br/>
Password:".$_POST['password']."</p>
<p>We hope you have great success with Trade-Bidz.</p>

<p>Kind Regards</p>

<p>The Trade-Bidz Team</p>";
$message=('<html><head>


<link href="http://www.trade-bidz.co.uk/style/trade-bidz.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

<body>
<div id="header">
</div>
<img src="http://www.trade-bidz.co.uk/images/logo.jpg" width="300" /></div>
<div id="content">'. $content.'</div>
<div id="footer">© Trade-Bidz 2011</div>
</body></html>');
$headers ="MIME-Version: 1.0rn";
$headers .= "Content-type : text/html; charset=iso=8859-1rn";
$headers .= "From: $from\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: noreply@trade-bidz.co.uk";

mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

echo ('Registration email has been sent');
?>
When the user registers, the code displays as a page in the browser, and the email that is sent displays the html code

What am I doing wrong?

Hi

 

I have amended the code, which now looks like

 

<?php
//email settings
$to=$_POST['user_name'];
$from="Trade-Bidz <registrations@trade-bidz.co.uk>";
$subject = "Trade-Bidz Registration Confirmation";
$content = "Hello ".$_POST['contact_name']."<p>Welcome to <a href=\"http://www.trade-bidz.co.uk\">Trade-Bidz</a>.  Add us to your Favourite and make it quicker to sell your part exchanges.</p><p>Your Login details are below, you will need these to be able to sell your vehicles and to be able to place bids on other vehicles</p>
<p>Email Address:".$_POST['user_name']."<br/>
Password:".$_POST['password']."</p>
<p>We hope you have great success with Trade-Bidz.</p>

<p>Kind Regards</p>

<p>The Trade-Bidz Team</p>";
$message=('<html><head>


<link href="http://www.trade-bidz.co.uk/style/trade-bidz.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

<body>
<div id="header">
</div>
<img src="http://www.trade-bidz.co.uk/images/logo.jpg" width="300" /></div>
<div id="content">'. $content.'</div>
<div id="footer">© Trade-Bidz 2011</div>
</body></html>');
$headers ="MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type : text/html; charset=iso=8859-1\r\n";
$headers .= "From: $from\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: noreply@trade-bidz.co.uk";

mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

echo ('Registration email has been sent');
?>

 

The message is being displayed in a browser, I want to stop the message displaying ina browser, and the email that is received is blank.

 

Please help me.

I copied that code to a new script file, put in my email address for TO and FROM. And ran it. The message was not displayed in the browser (except for the "Registration email has been sent" message that you echo at the end) and the email I received contained the text from your script - including the image (which is pretty cool).

 

In other words, that code works exactly as you want it to, for me.
