Help with web form mail with attachment

Postby reallygreen » Mon Aug 08, 2011 10:28 am

I am attempting to get an online form with attachment working for a website. Upon submitting, I get the following errors:
Warning: filesize() [function.filesize]: stat failed for in /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/sendresults.php on line 15

Warning: fread() [function.fread]: Length parameter must be greater than 0 in /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/sendresults.php on line 15
The file was successfully sent!

I'd appreciate it very much if anyone can offer assistance with this code:
$fileatt = "";
$fileatt_type = "application/octet-stream";
$fileatt_name = "word file";

$email_from = "candidate";
$email_subject = "job inquiry";
$email_txt = "all about candidate";

$email_to = "";

$headers = "From: ".$email_from;

$file = fopen($fileatt,'rb');
$data = fread($file,filesize($fileatt));
$size = ( $size > 1024 ? round($size/1024, 2) . "mb" : $size."kb");

$semi_rand = md5(time());
$mime_boundary = "==Multipart_Boundary_x{$semi_rand}x";

$headers .= "\nMIME-Version: 1.0\n" .
"Content-Type: multipart/mixed;\n" .
" boundary=\"{$mime_boundary}\"";

$email_message .= "This is a multi-part message in MIME format.\n\n" .
"--{$mime_boundary}\n" .
"Content-Type:text/html; charset=\"iso-8859-1\"\n" .
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit\n\n" .
$email_message . "\n\n";

$data = chunk_split(base64_encode($data));

$email_message .= "--{$mime_boundary}\n" .
"Content-Type: {$fileatt_type};\n" .
" name=\"{$fileatt_name}\"\n" .
//"Content-Disposition: attachment;\n" .
//" filename=\"{$fileatt_name}\"\n" .
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\n\n" .
$data . "\n\n" .

$ok = @mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers);

if($ok) {
echo "<font face=verdana size=2>The file was successfully sent!</font>";
} else {
die("Sorry but the email could not be sent. Please go back and try again!");

Thank you.

Ok, from what I can see you code has me all confused. Is that all your wanting to do is have a user fill out a form. and when they click submit. It sends them an email with an attached file.

I'm I right
