Hi.  I need to create a csv and then email it.

I create the csv like this:
$csv .= "$row[id],$row[date],$row[lead_id],$row[name],$row[lastname],$row[emailaddress],$row[address],$row[city],$row[st],$row[zip],$row[homephone],$row[workphone],NA,$row[best_time_to_call],$row[loanpurpose],$row[desired_loan_amount],$row[propertytype],$row[currentvalue],$row[first_balance],$row[rate],NA,$row[loantype],NA,LTV,$row[credit],NA,NA,NA,NA,$row[ipaddress]\n";
header('Content-type:application/save-as');
header('Content-disposition:attachment;filename='.$CSV_filename.'-'.$today.'.csv');
echo $csv;

opens the save as window....

Instead I would like to attach it to an email.  

Thanks
