I am needing to send two attachments from my form. Both fields are called
'fileatt' and 'fileatt1'. Below is the script i wrote to attach 'fileatt'
but i am unsure on how to attach 'fileatt1'. Can I just add fileatt1 or do I
need to rethink how I do it?

Ooo, I would try this:
a _really_ nice class, easy to use, does everything you want (and much more), costs nothing and will save you time (+ reading the source code will probably help you to learn alot about mail headers etc - assuming that your not hot on mail stuff, though gathering from your code so far you have a pretty good idea :-)


Many thanks

// Obtain file upload vars $fileatt = $_FILES['fileatt']['tmp_name']; $fileatt_type = $_FILES['fileatt']['type']; $fileatt_name = $_FILES['fileatt']['name'];

$headers = "From: $from";

if (is_uploaded_file($fileatt)) {
// Read the file to be attached ('rb' = read binary)
$file = fopen($fileatt,'rb');
$data = fread($file,filesize($fileatt));

// Generate a boundary string
$semi_rand = md5(time());
$mime_boundary = "==Multipart_Boundary_x{$semi_rand}x";

// Add the headers for a file attachment
$headers .= "\nMIME-Version: 1.0\n" .
"Content-Type: multipart/mixed;\n" .
" boundary=\"{$mime_boundary}\"";

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

// Base64 encode the file data
$data = chunk_split(base64_encode($data));

// Add file attachment to the message
$message .= "--{$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" .


// Send the message
$ok = @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
if ($ok) {
header ("Location:";);
