Here is some sample code I came across over the net. It demonstrates two things:
One how to send email using PHP the second one is how to change the mail headers in order to send Unicode UTF-8 mail.
<?php $from = 'email@example.com'; $to = 'firstname.lastname@example.org'; $subject = 'Sending Unicode e-mail'; $message = ' <p> Hello! </p> <p> This message contains and displays unicode characters like the Greek Α, Γ and Ω </p>'; $header = "Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8\r\nFrom: $from\r\nReply-to: $from"; if ( mail($to, $subject, $message, $header) ) echo "Email sent to $to!"; else echo "Error occurred while sending email to $to!"; ?>
Remember that for the mail function to work correctly the SMTP Server must be correctly specified in PHP.ini.
I will come back with more precise info as soon as I have completed my tests
