emailing file as attachement from form submission


I use the following to process form submissions.
It uploads the file submitted to the server and sends a notice to the webmaster.

I don't want the file to be uploaded.  Instead, I want the file to be emailed to the webmaster as an attachement, along with the notice.

How can this be done?


$error="The following errors occured while processing your form input.<ul>";
$error.="<li>The file, ".$HTTP_POST_FILES["file2upload"]["name"].", was not uploaded!";
if($errors==1) echo $error;
$image_part = date("h_i_s")."_".$HTTP_POST_FILES["file2upload"]["name"];
$image_list[0] = $image_part;
copy($HTTP_POST_FILES["file2upload"]["tmp_name"], "files/".$image_part);
$message="file2upload: ".$where_form_is."files/".$image_list[0]."
$message = stripslashes($message);
@mail("","Form Submitted at your website",$message,"From:");}
header("Location: http://" . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) . "/" . $relative_url);

You are best advised to use a class to handle mime attachments sucj as the pear package: mail_mime

Or better still let phpmailer handle everything for you:

Then you can add an attachment as easy as: $mail->AddAttachment("/tmp/image.jpg", "new.jpg");

For examples of use see the examples at the phpmailer site, its very straight forward.
