    Thumbs up How can I add HTML formating to 'Swift Mail tutorial' based PHP email?

    Hello,

    I have developed a competition page for a client, and they wish for the email the customer receives be more than simply text. The tutorial I used only provided simple text, within the 'send body message'. I am required to add html to introduce images to this email.

    The code is:

    Code:
    //send the welcome letter
    function send_email($info){
    		
    	//format each email
    	$body = format_email($info,'html');
    	$body_plain_txt = format_email($info,'txt');
    
    	//setup the mailer
    	$transport = Swift_MailTransport::newInstance();
    	$mailer = Swift_Mailer::newInstance($transport);
    	$message = Swift_Message::newInstance();
    	$message ->setSubject('Thanks for entering the competition');
    	$message ->setFrom(array('info@examplemail.com' => 'FromEmailExample'));
    	$message ->setTo(array($info['email'] => $info['name']));
    	
    	$message ->setBody('Thanks for entering the competition, we will be in touch if you are a lucky winner.');
    
    	$result = $mailer->send($message);
    	
    	return $result;
    	
    }
    This function.php sheet is working and the customer is recieving their email ok, I just need to change the

    ('Thanks for entering the competition, we will be in touch if you are a lucky winner.')
    to have HTML instead...
    Please, if you can, provide me with an example of how I can integrate HTML into this function.

    Cheers in advance. :-)

    try like this, for example if you want it into bold style

    like this

    $message ->setBody('<b>Thanks for entering the competition, we will be in touch if you are a lucky winner.</b>')

    Thanks, but that didn't work

    Hi Pprakash,

    thanks for getting back to me, I have already tried this, and basically the email I recieve then shows me the tags, instead of using the tags to style the text??

    You need to find where it sets the emails mime type and set it to "text/html".

    Thre is a good tutorial with example PHP scripts on how to send emails with:

    1) plain text

    2) HTML emails

    3) emails with attachments

    at http://www.webcheatsheet.com/php/sen...attachment.php

    When sending HTML emails, you should also send a plain text version in the same email for those email clients that either do not support html emails or have it turned off.

    Imo, you should also have a link in your email to a web version of the html email. The amount of support for html formating in email clients varies widely.
