If your site is hosted at an ISP, they usually have some type of canned form to email script that you can use. It really depends on what language they require. There's literally thousands of different scripts out there, so it's even hard to say use this or that. As an example though:

If you can tell us the name of the ISP, we can probably help set something up for you ...

Hi Sean
Thankyou for your reply. My client has 2 websites, the first one i think i can handle with ASP using the cdonts attach emthod, still looking into that, but the second site doesnt support ASP and i am not very familiar with cgi, however the server does have a form handler but i dont no how to set it up and start using it. The host is Wild West domains, the cpanel has an area where you can install the form handler but i am not sure either if it allows you to send attachments or that i no how to install it. He wants to be able to have people attach their resumes to send to him as he is a writer and does peoples resumes for a living.
Thanks for  all your help and time

Well, there's no details on their site regarding the type of cgi form they use. The best thing to do at this points is to send them an email asking:

I need to include attachments in an email form.
1. Does the script that you offer have this capability or
2. Can I use another cgi email script and install it on your server?

Hopefully it will be one of the two, and then we can go from there :-)

Thanks,
Sean
