$mail->mailHTML() method

Send an email with message assumed to be in HTML

This is the same as the $mail->mail() method except that the message argument is assumed to be HTML rather than text. The text version of the email will be auto-generated from the given HTML.

Available since version 3.0.109.


// basic usage
$bool = $mail->mailHTML($to, string $subject, $messageHTML);

// usage with all arguments
$bool = $mail->mailHTML($to, string $subject, $messageHTML, array $headers = []);

Email address TO. For multiple, specify CSV string or array.

headers (optional)array

Optional additional headers as [name=value] array or "Name: Value" newline-separated string. Use this argument to duplicate PHP mail() style arguments. No need to use if you used $options array for the $message argument.

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
