    php sendmail

    i wasn't really sure which section to post this, php or html. i'm sending html-formatted email via php's mail() function. All looks good on the receiving side (in thunderbird, aol, and outlook), however, in comcast mail (which is the only web-based client i've tested so far) the <img> elements get altered.

    When this is sent...
    <img src='http://www.foo.com/foo.jpg'; style='position:absolute; top:10px; left:10px; height:100px; width:100px'/>"

    comcast email shows (via firebug)...
    <img dfsrc="http://www.foo.com/foo.jpg" src="http://www.foo.com/foo.jpg"/>

    If I swap the src and style parms, like so...
    <img style='position:absolute; top:10px; left:10px; height:100px; width:100px'; src='http://www.foo.com/foo.jpg' />"

    comcast email show (via firebug)...
    <img style="position: absolute; top: 10px; left: 10px; height:100px; width:100px';"/>

    I've tried priming my img with the "dfsrc" value, and other variations on that theme, but no matter what I do, on the receiving side I seem to have a choice of either getting the img url OR the img style info, but not both.

    Again, Comcast is the only web-based client I've tested so I don't know if others will munge my html. Can anyone shed any light on this?

    Thanks in advance.

    This may be something that ComCast webmail does to incoming images... so it may be out of your control.

    This may be worth a read, helped me quite a lot:
