    How to send mail in UTF8

    I have a form that I use mail PHP function to send email. This works fine for english but for other languages it does not work. I get unreadable characters. So I assume I need mail function to send the message in UTF8 format. If anyone can help me on this much will be appreciated.

    Hi Enun,

    Yes you need to send the mail in UTF8 format. Here is the function how to do that.
    // send the mail in UTF-8 format. Change the Content-type: text/html for html format
    function mail_utf8($to, $subject = 'No subject', $msg = '', $mailheader = '')
    $preheader = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n" . 'Content-type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8' . "\r\n"; if(!mail($to, '=?UTF-8?B?'. base64_encode($subject) . '?=', $msg, $preheader . $mailheader)) return false; else return true;
