Before I migrated to a new linux server the php mail script built into the application worked with no issues. It was sending emails in html format with a logo.
now after the server migration it is decoding errors and the html code is showing up

I am getting this type of errors:
-----------------------------
X-Mailer: PHP-EMAIL,v2.0 (wmfwlr AT cogeco DOT ca)

MIME-Version: 1.0

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
boundary="--60ef6ca862242a232bcbb4047f167538"
----60ef6ca862242a232bcbb4047f167538

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

 <font size='3' face='Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif'>

Employee Name:&nbsp;&nbsp; Joe Smith

<br><br>

---------------------
Any ideas what may be wrong. Nothing on the script was changed, just the files moved to the new server. anything I can check?

None of those are actually errors, that's just part of the raw message getting displayed.

I suspect the problem is that somewhere the mail script is messing up where \r\n pairs go in the original message header (or is splitting up lines in a funny way).  If your e-mail client has a feature to view the raw source of the message (the headers and everything -- most do have such a feature) what do you see at the top leading up to that X-Mailer: header?

used a different script and that solved the problem. I agree with you, I did not like the script I was using but hey (as long as it worked why fix it) ;)
Thank you for your help
