whats the skinny on html in email?
Hello, just trying to put html in an email so it will read my href link. Its sending to the email but its showing all this as is instead of reading the html code. Anyone see whats wrong with this html email php? Thanks very much.
$validateemail = 'firstname.lastname@example.org ;
$from = 'noreplysupportaddress';
$subject = "Email validation" ;
$messageproper = "<html>
<div><span style='font-family:arial,sans-serif;font-size:14px'>Testing text and html in an email.<a href='http:www.example.com/validate.php?username=$username
' target='blank'>Validate Your Email</a></span></div>
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type:text/html;charset=iso-8859-1" . "\r\n";
$headers = "From: <$from>\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: ".preg_replace('/[rn]+/', ' ', $from)."\r\n";
mail($validateemail, $subject, $messageproper, $headers);

Don't know if this would be causing the problem you are seeing, but you left out the "//" after the "http:" in the link tag.
