Hi,

I think this is the code that you need to be converted. Right?

<?phpsession_start(); 	include('database.php');$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM  autoalto_mail" ); while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))		{		?>  			<tr>									<td width="5%"></td>					<td>				     <? echo $row['From_user'];						//$from_u=$row['From_user'];							//session_register("from_u"); 			?></td>					<td >				     <a href="contractor_mail_action_contents.php?mail_id=<? echo $row['mail_id'];			 						?>"> 					    <?echo $row['subject'];							$subj=$row['subject'];							session_register("subj"); 						?>					 </a>					</td>					<td><?echo $row['date']?></td> 			</tr> 			<tr>				<td width="5%"></td>							<td colspan="4" style="background-repeat: repeat-x;" background="images/dot.jpg" height="0" width="300">				</td>			</tr> 		<?			    } 	     mysql_close();        ?>
