I'm using PHP with MySQL data to send a very important email to clients when
they enter the recipients email address into the system.  On the whole it
works for ME, to either my yahoo email address or any of my own domains
email addresses that I have,

However, when my WIFE gets it it isn't HTML (Even though mine is) with
outlook OR outlook express and my boss doesn't get it at ALL even at his
yahoo address, so something is wrong with my script.  Can anyone look at it
please and let me know if anything is blazingly obvious that I've done

As I said I can receive emails on any account I personally try, but my boss
cannot and if it doesn't work for him it's basically not working in his eyes
as it could be having the same issue with others.

You should never send HTML only messages. Normal mail clients always send HTML messages with an alternative text part. Spam filters that whatever sends HTML only messages is not a normal mail client, so they rightfully assume that the message is sent by a bulk-mailer and discard it.

You need to send a message with multipart/alternative MIME part that encapsulates the text and HTML parts. This is a bit complex. You may want to try this MIME message composing and sending class that can do that for you. Just try the test_simple_html_mail_message.php example script and that is all you need to know.

BTW, if you are sending the same message to many recipients at the same time, the class provide a few optimization tricks to speedup your deliveries:
