Ok, don't holler at me, I understand php4 is no longer. That said, for many reasons it's not possible to upgrade to php5 and use phpMailer - as much as I'd like to. I've searched around and there's no other answer presented. So, here's the problem. I create a text file /tmp2/tmporder2

The code below sends the email fine with the attachment, but the attachment contains 0 bytes, NADA.

<?php
$path = '/tmp2';
$filename = 'tmporder2';
$mailto = 'dave(at)powerfulhosting(dot)com';
$from_mail = 'estore order receipt';
$from_name = 'bagelworks order';
$replyto = '';
$subject = 'TESTING EMAIL ATTACHMENT';

$file = $path.$filename;
$file_size = filesize($file);
$handle = fopen($file, "r");
$content = fread($handle, $file_size);
fclose($handle);
$message=$handle;

$content = chunk_split(base64_encode($content));
$uid = md5(uniqid(time()));
$name = basename($file);
$header = "From: ".$from_name." <".$from_mail.">\r\n";
$header .= "Reply-To: ".$replyto."\r\n";
$header .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$header .= "Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=\"".$uid."\"\r\n\r\n";
$header .= "This is a multi-part message in MIME format.\r\n";
$header .= "--".$uid."\r\n";
$header .= "Content-type:text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n";
$header .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit\r\n\r\n";
$header .= $message."\r\n\r\n";
$header .= "--".$uid."\r\n";
$header .= "Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name=\"".$filename."\"\r\n"; // use different content types here
$header .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\r\n";
$header .= "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"".$filename.."\"\r\n\r\n";
$header .= $content."\r\n\r\n";
$header .= "--".$uid."--";
if (mail($mailto, $subject, "", $header)) {
echo "mail send ... OK"; // or use booleans here
} else {
echo "mail send ... ERROR!";
}
?>

Any ideas why the attached file is blank?

yes, it cannot find your file, because it's not at the location you
specified ;)

Without trying your code, I can only guess. However, a couple of questions:

1. Why are you trying to put your content in the header? That should go
in the body.

2. Why are you using \r\n\r\n multiple times in your header? This will
insert a blank line, which identifies the beginning of the data.

3. Have you tried looking at the source of the email when it's received,
and compared it to a working attachment, i.e. from thunderbird? This is
the easiest way to see what's not correct.

No slash here? What's in '/tmp2tmporder2'?

What's this supposed to do? It looks like you're trying to put the same
text file into the text plain part *and* as a base64 encoded version of
the same thing. Maybe you are, but that just seems like a fantastic way
to add a lot of obscure redundancy.

There are versions of PHPMailer that work under PHP 4:
<http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmailer/files/phpmailer%20for%20php4/>.

However, you may reconsider the reasons for not upgrading to PHP 5. The
last maintainence relase of PHP 4 is already 5 years old--a lot of bugs
and vulnerabilities have been fixed since then.

TYhis worked for me. obviusly its not your finalsolution

function mail_html_file($email, $subject,$from,$return_path,$body)
{

$attach=
chunk_split(base64_encode(file_get_contents('../Images/Logo2.gif')));
$boundary = md5( time() );

$headers = sprintf("From: %s\nMIME-Version: 1.0\nContent-Type:
multipart/related; boundary=\"%s\"",
$from, $boundary);

$message = sprintf("--%s\nContent-Type: text/html;
charset=\"iso-9959-1\"\nContent-Transfer-Encoding:
quoted-printable\n\n%s\n\n--%s\nContent-Type: Image/gif;
name=\"Logo.gif\"\nContent-ID: <Logo2.gif>\nContent-Transfer-Encoding:
base64\n\n%s\n\n--%s--\n",
$boundary,$body,$boundary,$attach,$boundary);
mail($email, $subject, $message, $headers, "-f ".$return_path );
}
That worked on a linux apache exim mail based system..
