The code show below will send an email to the address in the "to" field. Basically you would POST the information from your html contact form to a php page containing the code below (just make sure your form  fields names  are "name",  "email", " phone" and "message".
<?php
$to = "youremail@yourdomain.com";
                        $subject = "Form Submission from Website";
 
                        $msg="Name: " . $_POST['name'] ."\n";
                        $msg.="Email: " . $_POST['email'] ."\n";
                        $msg.="Phone Number: " . $_POST['phone'] ."\n";
                        $msg.="Message: " . $_POST['message'] ."\n";
                        $headers = "From: " . $_POST['email'] . "\r\n" .
                        "Reply-To: ".$_POST['email'] . "\r\n" .
                        'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();
 
                        mail($to, $subject, $msg, $headers);
                        
                        ?>

You can use attached class (TemplateMailer.class.php) this way:

<?php
include('../TemplateMailer.class.php');

$template_folder = '../templates/';//where you store normal html files to email saved as file.tpl.html

$destmail='your@email.com';
$mailadres1=user@email.com;
$temp = new TemplateMailer();
$temp->preparemail($template_folder . 'name_of_your_file.tpl.html');
$sent = $temp->send($destmail, $mailadres1, "Email subject", '');

?>

I think that PHPMailer class is what you are looking for.

$mail->IsHTML(true);

Website: http://phpmailer.worxware.com/
<?php

require("class.phpmailer.php");

$mail = new PHPMailer();



$mail->From="mailer@example.com";

$mail->FromName="My site's mailer";



$mail->AddAddress("email@example.com");

$mail->Subject = "Test 1";



$mail->IsHTML(true);

$mail->Body = "<h1>Test 1 of PHPMailer html</h1><p>This is a test</p>";

$mail->AltBody="This is text only alternative body.";



$mail->Send();

?>

As I also suggest for PHPMailer.

Use PHPMailer with authentication to send email and to avoid going to span.

$mail->IsHTML(true);
$mail->IsSMTP();
$mail->Host     = "mail.somethign.com";
$mail->Mailer   = "smtp";
$mail->SMTPAuth = "true";
$mail->Username = "*********";
$mail->Password = "******";
