beginning_php thread: sending multipart/mixed email from php does not show up correctly in Outlook

Message #1 by tuomaskesti@h... on Sun, 6 Oct 2002 17:23:35
I am trying to send a multipart email from php script (example from 
Beginning PHP4, page 530) using Windows2000/IIS5 SMTP virtual server but 
the message does not show up correctly in Outlook 2000 or Outlook 
Express. If I send the email to for example hotmail, everything is fine. 
It seems like Outlook would not understand MIME version 1.0 but this 
cannot be true??? I've searched through multiple KB's including 
Microsoft's but have not been able to find anything useful. So if anyone 
has seen the same problem or knows what I am doing wrong, please let me 

I cannot paste the code here at all that I am using since that has to do 
with email sending with attachments and this Wrox's form checking thinks 
that I am actually sending an email with attachments using this form. So 
every time when I try to do that, the submission gets rejected. Anyway, 
if anybody has tried the example that I mention here and gets the same 
problem in Outlook, please let me know. All I get in Outlook is the 
warning message that is coded in the mail header that the message 
is 'multipart message in MIME format' and that it cannot be displayed 
correctly. After that message, I get the mail body and the attachment as 
text after the body.

If anybody knows something about this, please let me know.
