You are opening your php tags but not closing it.

What exactly is not working?

Ok, going through your question again, try this:
<h1>Please confirm the reception of this email and the acceptance of the job/s below:<br />Information for</h1> 	 
      <?php
$term = $_POST['term'];
$term1 = $_POST['term1'];

$body="";

mysql_select_db($database_languageLinks, $languageLinks);
$query_languageLinks = "SELECT * FROM jobs WHERE Job LIKE '%$term%' AND Let LIKE '%$term1%'";
$languageLinks = mysql_query($query_languageLinks, $languageLinks) or die(mysql_error());


while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($languageLinks)){
		$body .= " ".$row['Job'];

		echo '<br/><b>Job:</b> '.$row['Job'];
			echo '<br/><b>Job Date:</b> '.$row['JobDate'];

			$body .= " ".$row['JobDate'];

	echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Start at:</b> '.$row['Start'];

	$body .= " ".$row['Start'];

		echo '<br/><b>Rescheduled on:</b> ' .$row['2JobDate'];

	$body .= " ".$row['2JobDate'];

		echo ' <br/><b>Language:</b> '.$row['Lang'];
	echo '<br/><b>Interpreter:</b> '.$row['FirstName'];
	echo '&nbsp;'.$row['Surname'];
	echo '<br> <b>Agency/Org:</b> '.$row['ClientName'];
			echo '<br> <b>Location:</b> '.$row['JobAdd'];
		echo '<br> <b>For Non English Speaker:</b> ' .$row['NESB'];

	echo '<br> <b>Ref:</b> '.$row['URN'];

	echo '<br> <b>Interpreter Short Notice:</b> '.$row['ShNotCont'];
					echo '<br/> <b>Comment:</b> '.$row['Comment'];
	echo '<br/>';
	echo '<br/>';
	echo '<br/>';
	 echo '<a href="mailto:'.$row['ContEmail'].'?body=$body">'.$row['ContEmail'].'</a>'; 
	}

Oops, I missed the single quotes...
I don't test the code as I reply quick :)

You're welcome, the solution below should help you but I still think you are doing this strangely.

Change this line:
 echo '<a href="mailto:'.$row['ContEmail'].'?body=$body">'.$row['ContEmail'].'</a>';

to this:
 echo "<a href=\"mailto:".$row['ContEmail']."?body=$body\">".$row['ContEmail'].'</a>';

You're welcome :)

Look into mail()
php.net/mail

you should be able to mail someone automatically instead of using mailto:

If you have problems, create a new question and message me here
