What is the correct code for this if statement?

Here's the if statemement that I'm using:

if($email_sent<>"0000-00-00")
{
do something
}
else
{
do another thing
}

It's not working correctly and I don't know why. When I print out the $email_sent variable, it comes back "0000-00-00." Yet, it just blows right past my if statement.

So, what do I need to do different? I need to write an if statement that effectively identifies those situations where the date field is 0000-00-00. Right now, what I have written isn't doing that and I don't know why.

Thoughts?

Use != instead <>:

if($email_sent != "0000-00-00")
{
do something
}
else
{
do another thing
}

not sure about the <> supported by php.

Maybe have a try with this :
if($email_sent != "0000-00-00")
{
do something
}
else
{
do another thing
}
