Php mail ( spits out html tags )
Some clients are reporting that they see all the html code from my php mail. I modified the headers so it should work but it doesn't.
Any idea what i can add so everyone see's html.
One reported html output came from a @live.be account
$subject = "Bedankt voor uw inschrijving";
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8 \r\n";
$headers .= "From: email@example.com\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org\r\n";
$headers .= "X-Mailer: PHP/".phpversion()."\r\n";
$body = '
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

They probably have HTML turned off on their mail readers. You cannot control that. The solution is to create a multi part message that has both HTML and plain text or only send plain text. To make life easy on yourself you should use a mailer package like PHPMailer.

You can send a multipart message consisting of both rich and plain text versions of the message.
The first google result for the terms is this, but I don't know how accurate it is.
