        PHP HTML Email

//define the receiver of the email
$to = "name@domain.com";
//define the subject of the email
$subject = 'Subject';
//create a boundary string. It must be unique
//so we use the MD5 algorithm to generate a random hash
$random_hash = md5(date('r', time()));
//define the headers we want passed. Note that they are separated with \r\n
$headers = "From: website@domain.com\r\nReply-To: name@domain.com";
//add boundary string and mime type specification
$headers .= "\r\nContent-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=\"PHP-alt-".$random_hash."\"";
//define the body of the message.
ob_start(); //Turn on output buffering
?>
--PHP-alt-<?php echo $random_hash; ?> 
Content-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

<p>HTML Content HERE</p>

--PHP-alt-<?php echo $random_hash; ?>--

<?

//copy current buffer contents into $message variable and delete current output buffer
$message = ob_get_clean();
//send the email
$mail_sent = @mail( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );

$mail_sent ? header('page.php?sent=ok');
