Hi,

I need to be able to extract data from a mysql table then create an html e-mail that includes some of the data.

The mysql side I can handle - but can anyone give me any pointers on how to get php to send an html e-mail?

Ideally I'd like to have an HTML page saved separately with variables in it and a separate php file that calls the template.

Cheers

Simon

here is a tutorial on mail --> [a href=\"http://www.phpfreaks.com/tutorials/130/0.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.phpfreaks.com/tutorials/130/0.php[/a]

As to the template issue, you can use this to read a php file that again matches your template:

ob_start();

require("html_email_generator.php");

$html_email_body = ob_get_contents(); 

ob_end_clean();
