HTML emails are not rendering properly

I am trying to send a HTML email to reset passwords. The problem is that the emails are just displaying the HTML just as a text reader would. Both in Gmail and in Office 365.

Here is my code.

<?php
$message = '
<html>
<head>
    <title>Reset Your Password</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Thanks for being a customer.</h1>
<h2>This link can only be used one time for security purposes.</h2>
<table cellspacing="0" style="border: 2px dashed #FB4314; width: 300px; height: 200px;">
    <tr>
        <th>Name:</th><td>CodexWorld</td>
    </tr>
    <tr style="background-color: #e0e0e0;">
        <th>Email:</th><td>email@domain.com</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <th>Reset Link:</th><td><a href="http://accounts.effinghamministorage.com/resetpassword.php?hex=' . $hex . '">Reset Password</a></td>
    </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>';

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

I don't think the problem is with your html, it's with the content type in which you're sending the email. You want to be sending it as "text/html".
