Send Email in wordpress

It’s very easy to send email in WordPress

	   $to = $discountEmail;
	   $subject = "Your Subject";
	   $headers = array('Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8');
	   $message = file_get_contents(get_template_directory().'/example.html', true);
	   $attachments = "Attach";
	  wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message, $headers,$attachments

Fun way to create email template that includes responsive design
1. Create a file (example.html) in theme folder and Copy default design as


<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"/>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
    <title>Simple Transactional Email</title>
