I'm having a major problem. I'm trying to send a message FROM Windows XP Pro, now this is where it get weird - in some mail packages it WORKS, and in some it doesn't. Basically it's an HTML email which is sent when a form is completed, the results are stored in a DB and then sent on in an HTML Email Format. In My outlook 2003, it works, in my friends outlook 2003 which I setup for him exactly the same way mine is - the email is blank, it is the same in his outlook express. My question is, can anyone see anything that I am doing wrong for this to happen? Maybe my headers are wrong? Any help would be really appreciated as this is really getting to me.
Apart for taking the $body_html from the headers definition, you should not be sending literal text/html messages.
Many mail systems, including Hotmail will tag your message as spam because real mail clients always compose HTML messages with an alternative plain text part in the same body.
The reason for that is that sending literal text/html messages is a pattern of messages sent by some spammers.
What you need to do is to compose multipart/alternative messages that include both a text/html and text/plain part. If you do not know how to do that you may want to take a look at this message composing and sending class that includes an example to do exactly that:
