Mac - can it use Web Form with PHP?

Hi - I installed a script that uploads a customers file to a Unix server and sends an email notification to the administator.

My customer(Administrator) - who is on a MAC - receives the email with the link to go to a web page where the uploaded file can be downloaded.

It all works great for me via a PC Windows - MS Outlook . . . .

   BUT HE gets a page of ALL SCRIPT and CODING.  YIKES.  BAD NEWS.

Is there any reason why a MAC wouldn't allow him to link via a PHP web form??

Thanks, April

P.S.  Maybe I need to send you an email with a link so you can tell.

Yes, the link would be useful.  PHP code is interpreted on the server,
so I can imagine a couple of things that could go wrong:
 - The URL you are sending is not a valid URL (backslashes or spaces?)
 - The PHP code has a bug in the codepath taken for the mac user agent

Oh good, I'm so glad it's server interpreted.  But since my client is a Mac guy and I'm not . . . I needed to confirm.

Thank you.
