HI DarkHill,

Here's the one I use regularly (it allows for both plain text and HTML formatted emails):
function multipart_mail($to, $subject, $html_message, $text_message, $from_address, $from_display_name=''){
     $headers = $from_display_name == '' ? "From: ".$from_address : "From: ".$from_display_name." <".$from_address.">";
     $semi_rand = md5(time()); 
     $mime_boundary = "==Multipart_Boundary_x{$semi_rand}x"; 
     $headers .= "\nMIME-Version: 1.0\n";
     $headers .= "Content-Type: multipart/alternative;\n";
     $headers .= " boundary=\"{$mime_boundary}\""; 
     $email_message =
     $email_message .= "This is a multi-part message in MIME format.\n\n"; 
     $email_message .= "--{$mime_boundary}\n";
     $email_message .= "Content-Type:text/plain; charset=\"iso-8859-1\"\n";
     $email_message .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit\n\n"; 
     $email_message .= $text_message . "\n";
     $email_message .= "--{$mime_boundary}\n"; 
     $email_message .= "Content-Type:text/html; charset=\"iso-8859-1\"\n"; 
     $email_message .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit\n\n";
     $email_message .= $html_message;
     return @mail($to, $subject, $email_message, $headers);
