Sending e-mail in HTML Format(PHP)

I have a script that parses XML updates from a feed and if there is a new product I want to send an email showing the information and letting myself know that I need to add the categories to it in my CMS. The image is an external image(Not on my server).

Can anyone point me in the right direction/useful examples on how to send HTML e-mails. What I really need is the ability to show that external image in the email.

I tried to search for “html email in php” in both the standard search and advanced search for this forum and I keep coming to the page, and the page is blank.

Again, I don’t want to be spoon fed, but any direction on some good examples or documentation would be great. I am fairly new to PHP and programming in general and if I took every article I have ever read online at face value for programming…well you know.


Sure, check out SwiftMailer.

Exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much for the lead!
