my question is about send an email with php like a newsletter, when we read
a newsletter email its similar to a webpage which contains content, images,
css and other elements

i created a static webpage initially with html css and images folder after
creating the page i wanted to test to see how it would look if i were to
send this as an email like a newsletter.

so i have created a php file with
$headers = "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1";
$subject="Email Newsletter";
$message as mentioned above has the entire html code as i used it in my
static html page
i also copied the style.css in the server and created images folder and
copied all the images i used in my static page to the server.

i created a separate folder in my webserver called newsletter and copied the
php file, css file and images folder with the images i used

when i accessed the index.php as http://website.com/emailnewsletter i am
getting a message that The email has been sent and i am getting the email

however my question is when i open this email the styles and images are not
being applied and i see only the text in the static page i created.

can someone let me know how i can fix this so that when i open the email it
would look like the static page i created with all the styles applies and
images displayed

is this only possible by using specialized email softwares or can it be done
by php as well with the logic used.

any help will be appreciated.
