 Mailparse function does not parse multipart/related type of messages properly. It considers whole message as text/html. Headers of message is as follows

Date: Tue, 12 Feb 2002 01:50:16 +0530
From: =?utf-8?Q?MSN Staff?= <>
Subject: =?utf-8?Q?Welcome to MSN?=
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/related;

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Content-Type: text/html;

<title class="clsGreeting">Welcome to MSN</title>

<style type="text/css">

   Due to type=text/html parameter to Content-Type: multipart/related; it is giving problem

It works for me.
The headers you included look like bogus headers to me,
so I suspect that is the problem.
Could you forward the entire message to me by private email? Send it to
Please make sure that you have read and understood the relevant rfcs about MIME and multipart messages (start with rfc2045). mailparse just allows you to take the message apart - it doesn't do any fancy stuff with multpart/related on it's own, you need to code that logic.

Sorry, there is a problem: I didn't read your report properly.
The fix will not appear in 4.2 or 4.2.1 because mailparse
has been moved into PECL, which means that you will need to download it separately from the main distribution.
When I've corrected the problem I will upload a revised tarball for PHP 4.2.x and let you know where to get it.

It's been a while since I've done anything for mailparse;
I can't remember if I have fixed it or not :-/

Could you try the tarball from:
and confirm if it still has the problem you described?

If this is not the case and you are able to provide the

This was fixed a while ago.
