ProTx/SagePay Form Payment - HTML Confirmation Message Field

I have a website to order products. The form method of the ProTx/SagePay service means that we are sending in POST data in PHP to their servers. They allow custom confirmation emails which can include HTML code in the &emailMessage field. For some reason for a number of weeks the confirmations display out like this when emailed (Partiall output).

Please can you view my code. The HTML is clean. I have tested this out manually on a mailto function whilst headers are set to HTML and it works fine.
		$strPost .= "&eMailMessage=<html><body>";
		$strPost .= "<p>Congratulations on your purchase. Your order details are as follows:</p>
					<p>
					<b>Event Name:</b> ".$ItemName."<br/>
					<b>Venue:</b> ".$venue."<br/>
					<b>Date:</b> ".$date."<br/>

					<b>Block:</b> ".$block."<br/>
					<b>Row:</b> ".$row."<br/>
					<b>Number of Tickets:</b> ".$qty."<br/>
					<b>Price:</b> &pound;".$price."<br/>
					<b>Delivery Charge:</b> &pound;".($TotPrice - ($price*$qty))."<br/>
					<b>Total:</b> &pound;".$TotPrice."<br/>
 					</p>	
					<p>We will dispatch the order as soon as we receive them from our suppliers. .</p>

It was just a mistake in the code, forgot to close a paragraph. Silly mistake.

Obviously the code you have posted is not the culprit.
It must be an html cleaner like
http://www.sitepoint.com/blogs/2006/02/17/safehtml-cleaning-form-input/
that is removing all start tags, rendering the html safe from xss

OOI. Is the message you are receiving been tagged as HTML? If so, try right clicking and do a view source (Outlook) or view original (GMail), etc. Look at what was actually sent rather than seeing what the email client is showing you.

They can be quite different.

Can you show the code which does the communication?

Cant show you the code which does the communication, the emailMessage field is passed to ProTX on transaction and they send the email.
