I am hosting my account with inmotion hosting and have the following mail() function that does not work. Please help
// Email
$email_msg = '<html><body>';
$email_msg .= "<a href=\"http://" . $URL . "/\">" . "<img src=http://" . $URL . "/images/logo.png " . "width=\"219\" height=\"71\"></a>";
$email_msg .= "<p>Email was sent from: " . $URL . "</p>";
$email_msg .= "</table></body></html>";

//send email
mail($mailTo, $subject, $email_msg, "From:" . $email_address, "Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1");

The email will be received as text
<html><body><a href=""><p>Email was sent from:</p><table width="560" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr><td width="160">Company Name :</td><td <td width="400">test company from website</td></tr><tr><td width="160">Title :</td>..........</table></body></html>

Please advice what to do

Sorry that you're having problems with sending email from your web page. Unfortunately, providing coding help is beyond the scope of the Community Support forum. We can point you to articles, but actually providing coding services is not something we can do. Check out Using the PHP email function and Using FormMail . These are two methods that can provide a way for you to send email from your website.

Apologies that we can't use/modify your code. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.
