How can I send a HTML format email with pictures using PHP?
I want to have a page with some settings and a HTML output which is sent via email to an address. What should I do?
The main problem is to attach files.how can i do that?

Answers:

It is pretty simple, leave the images on the server and send the PHP + CSS to them…

$to = '[email protected]';

$subject = 'Website Change Reqest';

$headers = "From: " . strip_tags($_POST['req-email']) . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: ". strip_tags($_POST['req-email']) . "\r\n";
$headers .= "CC: [email protected]\r\n";
$headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8\r\n";

$message = '<p><strong>This is strong text</strong> while this is not.</p>';


mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

It is this line that tells the mailer and the recipient that the email contains (hopefully) well formed HTML that it will need to interpret:

$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8\r\n";

Here is the link I got the info.. (link…)

You will need security though…

You need to code your html using absolute path for images. By Absolute path means you have to upload the images in a server and in the src attribute of images you have to give the direct path like this <img src="http://yourdomain.com/images/example.jpg">.

Below is the PHP code for your refference :- Its taken from http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php

<?php
// multiple recipients
$to  = '[email protected]' . ', '; // note the comma
$to .= '[email protected]';

// subject
$subject = 'Birthday Reminders for August';

// message
$message = '
  <p>Here are the birthdays upcoming in August!</p>
';

// To send HTML mail, the Content-type header must be set
$headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8' . "\r\n";

// Additional headers
$headers .= 'To: Mary <[email protected]>, Kelly <[email protected]>' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'From: Birthday Reminder <[email protected]>' . "\r\n";


// Mail it
mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
?>

        $body .= $this->imageUrl();
        $body .="'></img></td><td style=position:absolute;left:350;top:60;><h2><font color = #346699>PMS Pvt Ltd.</font><h2></td></tr>";
        $body .='<tr><td colspan=2><br/><br/><br/><strong>Dear '.$name.',</strong></td></tr>';
        $body .= '<tr><td colspan=2><br/><font size=3>As per Your request we send Your Password.</font><br/><br/>Password is : <b>'.$pass.'</b></td></tr>';
        $body .= '<tr><td colspan=2><br/>If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at:<br/><a href="mailto:[email protected]" target="_blank">[email protected]</a></td></tr>';
        $body .= '<tr><td colspan=2><br/><br/>Best regards,<br>The PMS Team.</td></tr></table>';

        $this->sendmail($body,$to,$subject);
    }

            $headersfrom .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";
            $headersfrom .= 'From: '.$from.' '. "\r\n";

    }

Sending an html email is not much different from sending normal emails using php. What is necessary to add is the content type along the header parameter of the php mail() function. Here is an example.

<?php
    $to = "[email protected]";
    $subject = "HTML email";
    $message = "
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>HTML email</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <p>A table as email</p>
    <table>
    <tr>
    <th>Firstname</th>
    <th>Lastname</th>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>Fname</td>
    <td>Sname</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </body>
    </html>
    ";
    // Always set content-type when sending HTML email
    $headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n";
    $headers .= "Content-type:text/html;charset=UTF-8" . "\r\b";
    $headers .= 'From: name' . "\r\n";
    mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers);
?>

Simplest way is probably to just use Zend Framework or any of the other frameworks like CakePHP or Symphony.

You can do it with the standard mail function too, but you’ll need a bit more knowledge on how to attach pictures.

Alternatively, just host the images on a server instead of attaching them. Sending HTML mail is documented in the mail function documentation.

Use PHPMailer,

To send HTML mail you have to set $mail->isHTML() only, and you can set your body with HTML tags

The trick is to know the content id of the Image mime part when building the html body part.
It boils down to making the img tag

Look at the function buildMimeMessage for a working example.

You can easily send the email with HTML content via PHP. Use the following script.

<?php
$to = '[email protected]';
$subject = "Send HTML Email Using PHP";

$htmlContent = '
<html>
<body>
    <h1>Send HTML Email Using PHP</h1>
    <p>This is a HTMl email using PHP by CodexWorld</p>
</body>
</html>';

// Set content-type header for sending HTML email
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type:text/html;charset=UTF-8" . "\r\n";

// Additional headers
$headers .= 'From: CodexWorld<[email protected]>' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Cc: [email protected]' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Bcc: [email protected]' . "\r\n";

// Send email
if(mail($to,$subject,$htmlContent,$headers)):
    $successMsg = 'Email has sent successfully.';
else:
    $errorMsg = 'Email sending fail.';
endif;
?>
