seeing html in email when using HTML Editor and custom email script

Hello!

I have problem on using HTML Editor in form to send email. It is possible to send email, but the message is in html format.

For more information see the attachement1 (Message received in html format), Attachement2 (Look of the form) and the code below.

Somebody can help me?.

Regards,

Celestino Veiga

What are you using in the message body to print this info out? Since you are seeing the html it might be that you are encoding the values when the form is sent. Post back and include the body of the message from your site root as well as a copy of this page with the form on it in a zip archive. I will take a look at it for you to see if I can spot the problem.

HTML Editor: Email message in bad format

Dear Eric,

The information you requested is attached.

The page with the form is pag_contacto.php. The page with email code is pag_envia.php.

Thanks for getting back with the files. The problem with the html you see in the email is that your message contains html but is sent as plain text. You will need to ensure that you send an html formatted email. To do this you can either update your mailing script to send all of the headers and adjust the formatting for html, or you can make use of Universal Email to create the html email message for you. This is exactly the type of thing that Universal Email is used for, here is a link to the product page if you are interested:

universal-email/

If you were sending the email as an html formatted message you should see all of the contents from the form the way it was entered.
