**Example:Send Mail using PHP **

$message1="<table cellpadding=2 cellspacing=0><tr valign='top' >Test</tr></table>";
$semi_rand = md5(time());

$email_from ="test@test.in"; // Who the email is from
$email_subject = "Test"; // The Subject of the email
$email_message = $message1;
$email_to =" tset@test.in"; // Who the email is to
$headers = "From: ".$email_from. "\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type: text/html\r\n"; 
$ok = mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers);

Beware of the simple mail() function.

You should set up a nice SMTP send function. Sometimes LINUX servers dont send out emails to other servers to the domain that they are in.

That's correct! You can look at http://formtoemail.com/FormToEmail.txt if you don't want to go through setting up smtp servers. It works right out of the box.

The mail() function is really only useful for sending plain text. Someone mentioned SMTP. If you want to do that, you are going to need a library like:

I've found that sending via SMTP instead of sendmail more reliably gets through spam filters. Also, I've found that as soon as I start doing anything fancy like attachments or HTML, the code suddenly gets complicated. Best to use a library for e-mail in PHP. The above has several working examples and the author will help you out if you get too stuck.
