Hello,

I have a form that submits information into a Mysql database then sends an email to the dealer. It was working fine (showing an html email formatted nicely) and yesterday i added a "heard_about" field to the database, form, and the insert script. Now when the email comes over it's showing all the html code?? I can't seem to figure out why that would start doing that? here's what the email looks like now:

I would try adding "\r\n" to the end of the header.  Not sure if that semicolon after Content-Type: text/html needs to be there.  I also wonder about having more than one HEREDOC declaration with the same name.

Have you gone back to your old version and compared the code line-for-line?

Sorry for the slow response Ray, I was gone this weekend and out half day today. I went through the code like you said and i did find a close bracket missing and yes the \rn\ seemed to work! Thanks!
