When you send mail from php code, you use mail() function for this purpose. Here is another library from PEAR for sending MIME mails including html mails, attachments, inline picture attachment , plain text mail etc.

The steps to install this library is :

pear install http://download.pear.php.net/package/Mail_Mime-1.5.2.tgz
pear install Mail

(you need a pre-installed PEAR library)

From the php code you can create a function for sending mails

public function sendMail($Content,$to,$subject,$from=’no-reply@mysite.com’, $type=’html’,$attachment=false ) { requireonce (”Mail.php”); requireonce (”Mail/mime.php”); $crlf = “n”; $hdrs = array( ‘From’ => $from, ‘Subject’ => $subject ); $mime = new Mail_mime($crlf); if($type== ‘html’) $mime->setHTMLBody($Content); // html content else $mime->setTXTBody($Content); // test content //you can pass $attachment as array of file paths if($attachment) foreach($attachment as $file) $mime->addAttachment($file, ‘image/jpeg’); //do not ever try to call these lines in reverse order $body = $mime->get(); $hdrs = $mime->headers($hdrs); $mail =& Mail::factory(’mail’); $mail->send($to, $hdrs, $body); }
