A question about emailing

Hi all;
I am using mail() to send email, but when I test on my yahoo and
hotmail account, all emails are send to the yahoo&hotmail bulk folder.
Why? and how to avoid it?

Thanks a lot!!

That happens if the Yahoo recipient address is in Bcc: or when you send
HTML only messages.

If that is your case, you need to compose HTML messages properly using
multipart/alternative parts to send both a text part and the HTML part.

If you do not know how to do that, you may want to try this class that
simplifies the composition of proper HTML messages:
