    HTML E-mail form in PHP, what is wrong?

    So, I'm trying to implement HTML code for my E-mail sent by the PHP script so I can add in a picture (Silly, I know, but that's how they want it :/)

    This is where I am so far: I've tried implementing the HTML, but it won't send e-mails anymore. Before the HTML changed, this was working... So I must have done something terribly wrong here...
    this is what I've changed, if you want me to post the entire file, please ask
    PHP Code:
    $message "
    <html>
    <head>
      <title>=KMD= Application</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <p>$todayis [EST]</p>
    <p>From:$visitor ($visitormail)</p>
    <p>Gamename: $gamename</p>
    <p>Age: $age</p>
    <p>Sex: $sex</p>
    <p>Favourite class: $class</p>
    <p>Experience: $exp</p>
    <p>Prefered name: $prefname</p>
    <p>Why we should let him in KMD: $notes</p>
    <p>__________</p>


    <p>Additional Info : IP = $ip</p>
    <p>Browser Info: $httpagent</p>
    <p>Referral : $httpref</p>
    </body>
    </html>
    "
    ;


    $from "From: $visitormail\r\n";

    $headers  'MIME-Version: 1.0' "\r\n";
    $headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' "\r\n";

    mail("myemail@gmail.com"$subject$message$headers$from);
    }
    }
    ?> 
    I was following instructions found here: http://be.php.net/manual/nl/function.mail.php

    Thanks in advance!

    Oh right, I just pasted the error checking in again, and this is what I'm getting:
    Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The fifth parameter is disabled in SAFE MODE. in /customers/ilfiorfiore.be/ilfiorfiore.be/httpd.www/kmdtest/contact3.php on line 124

    Ok, so that's fixed, but I still can't add an image with <img src="" />
    Any ideas?

    Uh the first post is getting cluttered so I'll explain myself on the second post

    I've got it to work, but apparently <img src=" link to picture " /> doesn't work... And gives no error either, just a blank page.

    Does anyone know if I could add images to my mail this way? And how?

    Thanks!

    as noted by on the manual you referred to,
    http://pear.php.net/package/Mail_Mime
    Note: If intending to send HTML or otherwise Complex mails, it is recommended to use the PEAR package » PEAR::Mail_Mime.
    which i linked to as above i believe you could add images with either way but if its not working then try the PEAR package

    Well I'm a beginning PHP coder... And I have no clue how to implement such a thing...
    So I was kind of hoping for a very straight-forward solution to this, without having to implement sophisticated php means like that...
    But thanks anyway...

    If there are any other solutions, I'd love to hear them though :P

    Where is the rest of your code? You only seemed to post a snippet for it.

    </form>

    </body>

    So if I try to add <img src=" link " />, it just doesn't work anymore...

    Because you are using double quotes you need to escape them or use single quotes. The following solutions will work

    <img src=\" link \" />

    <img src=' link ' />

    I'm suprised you didn't get any errors.
