    How to create a html mailing

    How do I insert a html page into an email?
    Background: I have built a dabase-based cms and I need to send out some of the data in it as an email. So, I have set up an export script that generates a nice and simple html page for me that contains all the necessary data in the desired formatting. But, I stupidly don't know how to get this page into my mail client? [img]images/smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Of course I could modify my export script to directly mail the stuff, but I want to be able to edit some of the text afterwards.

    This is probably really simple, but I am stuck. Can anybody help?

    EDIT:

    Found the answer here already:

    You really want to copy and paste HTML into Outlook every time you need to send out an email? I suggest you look into the mail function.

    well, I know about the mail function, but as i only need to do this once a month and want to be able to edit some stuff as necessary I'm quite happy with the copy and paste option...

    You could use the phpmailer class http://phpmailer.sourceforge.net/, it is very easy to build HTML email with it...
