In PHP, mb_encode_mimeheader() function is used to encode a string for MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) header. It encodes a given string by the MIME header encoding scheme.

string mb_encode_mimeheader(str $string, str$charset, str $transfer_encoding, str$newLine, int $indent) ## Parameters The mb_encode_mimeheader() function accepts five parameters − •$string − This parameter is used to encode the string. Its encoding should be the same as mb_internal_encoding()

• $charset − This parameter specifies the character set name in which the string is represented. •$transfer_encoding − This parameter specifies the scheme of MIME encoding. It should be base64 (B) or Quoted-printable (Q). If not given, then it falls back to base64 (B).

• $newLine − This parameter specifies the end-of-line (EOL) marker with which mb_encode_mimeheader() performs line-folding. •$indent − It is used for the indentation of the first line.

## Return Values

?>

## Output

## Example 2

<?php
$string = "\xe2\x86\x92"; mb_internal_encoding( "UTF-8"); echo mb_encode_mimeheader($string, 'UTF-8');
?>

## Output
