hi all,

following email sript works with the file attachament
how to design html template for the following mail

        //The form has been submitted, prep a nice thank you message
        $output = '<h3>Thanks for your file and message!</h3>';

        //Deal with the email
        $to = $_POST['email'];
        $subject = $_POST['subject'];

        $email = strip_tags($_POST['email']);
        $name  = strip_tags($_POST['name']);
        $skype = strip_tags($_POST['skype']);
        $message = "Posted Question: ".strip_tags($_POST['message'])."\n"."\n";
        $attachment = chunk_split(base64_encode(file_get_contents($_FILES['file']['tmp_name'])));

        $target_dir = "uploads/";
        $target_file = $target_dir . basename($today._.$time._.$_FILES["file"]["name"]);

        if($_FILES['file']['name'] != ""){
           move_uploaded_file($_FILES['file']['tmp_name'], $target_file);

        $boundary =md5(date('r', time()));

        $headers = "From: $to\r\nReply-To: $to";
        $headers .= "\r\nMIME-Version: 1.0\r\nContent-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=\"_1_$boundary\"";

    $message .= "Name: ".$name."\n"."\n";

    $message .= "Email: ".$email."\n"."\n";

    $message .= "Skype ID: ".$skype."\n"."\n";

 $message="This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=\"_2_$boundary\"

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=\"iso-8859-1\"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit


Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name=\"$filename\"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Disposition: attachment


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

An email can be added to the HTML document and sent to the client. Those HTML styles would be then rendered as the styles of the email itself.

For example, you can think of the following HTML markup

<div style="font-family: 'Segoe UI'; padding: 10px; color: #cecece">
   Hello, this is the email body. 

.. you can pass that entire code, as a string, to the body of the email. Once the email client would get it, it will render it as the styles would guide. There is no other special language to learn while designing the emails. You can design a web page, add data to it using the variables, fill the body and elements and just send it.

i had tried in the mail but it taking as a string not as tag

$message = "<div style=\"background:red;height:100px;width:100px;display:block;\">dfsdf</div>";
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1". "\r\n";

That is because, here it will be a string. Once sent, then it will be converted as a tag. Why don't you try sending an email to your gmail account? You will see, that it will be converted to HTML markup once downloaded by your client; Web or application.

yeah i had send but <div style=\"background:red;height:100px;width:100px;display:block;\">sample</div> like this it displays insted of sample
Afzaal Ahmad Zeeshan 18-Nov-14 5:56am    
Only sample is displayed on the page at all?
Arun-23 18-Nov-14 6:00am    
just for example i had said you sample.. need to display for above mail like bgcolor font color for message
You need to instruct include the instruction to interpret content as email:
(where my parameter array for SMTP mail is in $mailPars):

$mailPars[3] = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n"
                . "Content-type:text/html;charset=utf8" . "\r\n"
                . $mailPars[3];

Without this your tags are just considered text.
