QuestionUTF-8 format with mail() Pin
grmihel220-Sep-10 4:30

Hi php folks...

I decided to try to make an PHP script that a webform could call, to send an email, so I doesn't need the ugly mailto:xxx@yyy.domain in the form action.
So I have 2 pages. 1 frontend (html) and 1 backend (php).

The frontend contain an webform that on submit using the backend php as action, so its like:
index.html
sendemail.php
action="sendemail.php" (in the index.html form).

Everything works fine, and I recieving the emails as supposed... I have configured the php.ini to use my own smtp server (which I use at work too, so I know the SMTP server works).
the issue now is, that I want to send my emails as utf-8 format, cuz the need of some special characters inside the email?!?
I'm using the mail($to, $subject, $body, $header); as function right now... And when I type in some utf-8 formatted characters like ø, its viewed as ?? in the recieved email Frown | :(

How can I send my email()'s as utf-8?

I have try following:
- Set header of the email to utf-8:
$headers = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'From: ' . $_POST['email'] . "\r\n";



I'm using Eclipse PHP as php editor for development.

    $dato = date("d-m-y");
$to = "your@domain.dk";
$subject = "Web $dato";
$headers = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'From: ' . $_POST['email'] . "\r\n";

if($_POST['street'] != "")
    $street = $_POST['street'];
if($_POST['no'] != "")
    $no = $_POST['no'];
if($_POST['floor'] != "")
    $floor = $_POST['floor'];
if($_POST['name'] != "")
    $name = $_POST['name'];

//Set email body
$newline = "\r\n";
$body = "Date: $dato" . $newline .
$street . " " . $no . ", " . $floor . "." . $nnewline .
$navn;

//Send email
mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers);


Whitebox test:

Input:
$street = "ø";
$no = "53st";
$floor = "2nd";
$name = "æøå";
$dato = "20-09-2010";

Output SHOULD be:
Date: 20-09-2010
ø 53st, 2nd.
æøå


Actual output:
Date: 20-09-2010
?? 53st, 2nd.
