    Why do you need that...the user can hit the reply button, no?

    All what combinations?

    PHP Tip: If you want to use short tags (<? or <?=$var) then make sure short_open_tag is set to "1". It really helps.

    I still don't know why they just can't reply and you can take the arrival timestamp as they time to clock in.

    And I don't know what you mean by an email link. You mean a mailto:link?

    This might help you, I'm not sure:

    <a href="mailto:emailname@yourdomain.com?subject=Subject You Selected">The text of your link</a>

    What do I have to add to include the body ??

    Edit: I think you can do &body, Actually
    You must encode special characters, however. %20 = space, etc

    I would actually like to build off of this if I could.

    I want to be able to send an email and within that email have a button that my client can press which will send back another email to me with 3 more buttons I can press basically saying yes, no, maybe which will then be sent back to my client.

    I also want the subject to remain the same so I can track the hundreds of daily emails. If every single email had the same subject this wouldn't save me time.

    I feel like this has to be possible, but the coding looks like it may be more difficult than I was initially thinking.
