Hi All,

While everybody is on this topic, here's a problem I have been having. I use
mail() in a function in a loop to send e-mail with an attachment. The
e-mails get sent out to the different recipients but only the last one gets
sent correctly. The rest loses the 'From:' somewhere so that the message
ends up with the server name as from who and with the encoded attachment
inside of the message body. Here's the function:

function mail_attachment ($to, $subject, $message, $addr_from, $attachment,
$filename) {

        This function sends an e-mail with a file attachment using the
        PHP mail function with parameters $to, $subject and $message.
        The $attachment parameter is a string with the attachment file
content with
        filename $filename.

        $boundary = "b".md5(uniqid(time()));
        $mime = "From: $addr_from\n";
        $mime .= "Reply-To: $addr_from\n";
        $mime .= "X-Mailer: Digital Healthcare Solutions\n";
        $mime .= "X-Sender: $addr_from\n";
        $mime .= "Content-type: multipart/mixed; ";
        $mime .= "boundary = $boundary\n\n";
        $mime .= "This is a MIME encoded message.\n\n";
        // First the regular message
        $mime .= "--$boundary\n";
        $mime .= "Content-type: text/plain\n";
        $mime .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64";
        $mime .= "\n\n".chunk_split(base64_encode($message))."\n";
        // Now the attachment
        $mime .= "--$boundary\n";
        $mime .= "Content-type: text/plain\n";
        $mime .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\n";
        $mime .= "Content-Disposition: attachment; ";
        $mime .= "filename = ".chr(34).$filename.chr(34);
        $mime .= "\n\n".chunk_split(base64_encode($attachment))."\n";
        $mime .= "--$boundary--";

        mail ($to, $subject, "", $mime);

and here's the loop in which it gets called:

$i = 0;
while (isset($EmailAddress[$i])) {
        mail_attachment ($EmailAddress[$i], "URGENT Communication",
$message, $addr_from, $attachment, $filename);

Does anybody have any ideas?
