The PHP world is very pragmatic. If it works for you, it should be good
enough. Otherwise, you may need to look for something else.

Re: [PHP] E-Mail Attachment Filename Encoding Problem

2009-02-16 Thread Richard Heyes
Hi,

 my problem is that I send an e-mail with an attachment (pdf file). I get the
 filename out of a mysql table. While using echo or downloading the file, the
 filename is showed as expected but as an attachment it is not properly
 encoded:
 Should be: PC-Beschaffung 2008 (nur für Lehre)
 Will be: US-ASCII''PC-Beschaffung%202008%20(nur%20f%C3%BCr%20Lehre)

 I think I have to encode the file name and already tried utf8encode but this
 didn't help.

This may help:

I think you need to mime-encode it - mb_encode_mimeheader().  I haven't
tried it with attachments though.

/Per





To me it looks like he only wants the spaces and special-chars in the 
filename to be readable again.
I guess you submit the filename over the url, by doing that it 
automatically gets url-encoded (spaces and special chars are converted 
to entities).
If that's all you want (convert the entities to chars again), you need 
to apply a urldecode() on the filename, then I think you should be fine.

Yep, I think so too.  Spaces are no problem, but 8-bit characters need
to be encoded.
