hello,
i wrote an email script, the email body comes from a form, everything works (tables, styles) except links and images, the file path is getting messed up, when i receive the email that has a link in it  for example, when i click on the link, my outlook express pops up a warning about not

supporting the protocal for accessing  '\'http://www.website.com\'\'.

so i am guessing that my slashes are messed up.. How do i catch this file in my email script to fix this issue

use the function stripslashes on the values coming from the form or turn the "magic_quotes" setting in your PHP configuration to "off"
