Post your full mail function (with headers) here...

Your email mime type is text, you need HTML type in header.

$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset=\"iso-8859-1\"\n";

Here is the full code.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
$privatekey = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";
$resp = recaptcha_check_answer ($privatekey,
if (!$resp->is_valid) {
die ("The reCAPTCHA wasn't entered correctly. Go back and try it again." .
"(reCAPTCHA said: " . $resp->error . ")");
$httpagent = $_POST['httpagent'];
$visitor = $_POST['visitor'];
$visitormail = $_POST['visitormail'];
$notes = $_POST['notes'];
$attn = $_POST['attn'];
if (eregi('under construction:', $notes)) {
if(!$visitormail == "" && (!strstr($visitormail,"@") || !strstr($visitormail,".")))
echo "<h2>Use Back - Enter valid e-mail</h2>\n";
$badinput = "<h2>Feedback was NOT submitted</h2>\n";
echo $badinput;
die ("Go back! ! ");
if(empty($visitor) || empty($visitormail) || empty($notes )) {
echo "<h2>Use Back - fill in all fields</h2>\n";
die ("Use back! ! ");
[B]$todayis = date("l, F j, Y, g:i a") ;
$attn = $attn ;
$subject = $attn;
$notes = stripcslashes($notes);
$message = " $todayis [EST] \n
Attention: $attn \n
Message: $notes \n
From: $visitor ($visitormail)\n
Browser Info: $httpagent \n
Referral : $httpref \n
$from = "From: $visitormail\r\n";
mail("mail@example.com", $subject, $message, $from);
<h1>Thankyou, We got your mail!</h1>

how to modify it's header?

Replace the line

$from = "From: $visitormail\r\n";


$from = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n";
$from .= "Content-type:text/html;charset=iso-8859-1" . "\r\n";
$from .= "From: $visitormail" . "\r\n";
