CFMail & attachment

Posted on 2001-07-16

I'm having a slight problem with attaching file.  Basically, I'm doing a simple form so people can write me and attachment files along with it (such as JPG or DOC or what-not).  I can get the mail to send perfectly fine, but the file for attachment always ends up with a *.TMP extension.  Can anyone help me out here?

I've tried two ways:

<CFMAILPARAM FILE="#form.attachment#">

Both would send the file but only in *.TMP extension and gives its own name (such as AG93849.TMP).  The file size is the same as the orginal file.

I have tried both method above and it works perfectly fine if I put a static path (so #form.attachment# is replace with things like 'C:\mypic.jpg')

what creates form.attachment?  is it a <input type=file> thingy?  if so, you will probably first need to save it to the server with <cffile action=upload>, then attach to the email.

but having only cf4 at my disposal, i can't test that out right now...

Thank you... I wanted a second opinion and I got it.  I was trying to avoid using CFFILE, but I guess I have no other choice.  Thanks
