    Mail()


    Hi for some time I have been using the mail() function and not had any issues. However I would like to send an email with some kind of image either a background or as part of the email. Is there a way to do this like buisness do.

    I do not have access to the server directly on my website so I can't install any software. It just has to be there.

    Any ideas on this?

    TIA

    PHPMailer can do multipart and HTML emails easily.

    yeah, HTML-formatted emails are ridiculously nightmarish.
