I am trying to complete a script that sends an email along with html, the html changes the colors and the font, positions ...etc.

I am in need of help.

thnx in advance

Just simply add the html headers to the headers field. Below is a basic example:

// HTML headers
$headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";
//now to send it
mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

Hope it answers your question.

I'd recommend finding a good php library that allows for SMTP authentication. If the email client has decent security, php's plain old mail function with html headers is a sure fire way to get your email tossed in the junk folder. I use class.phpmailer.php. It also creates a plain text message for clients that don't allow html.

thnx cwarn23 it worked,

as for the class.phpmailer.php, should I put both versions (plain text And HTML) together in the mail? and what about the HTML tags, how can I make them disappear?

you could try this

	$subject		= $_POST['subject'];
	$firstname 		= $_POST["firstname"];
	$lastname 		= $_POST["lastname"];
	$email		= $_POST['email'];
	$country		= $_POST["country"];
	$telephone			= $_POST["telephone"];
	$message		= $_POST['message'];

        header("Location: thankyou.php");

$to = "$email";
$subject = "$firstname Confirmation Of Your Inquiry At WEBSITE NAME";
$MsgHeader = "From: WEBSITE NAME <noreply@website.com>\n";
$MsgHeader .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";
$MsgHeader .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1";
$MsgBody = "
<title>$firstname Your Inquiry</title>
