Hi Experts
Using the PHPMailer code below, I got the email with messages but not the attachment. Any suggestions?

Thanks
<?php
require("class.phpmailer.php");

// Instantiate your new class
$mail = new PHPMailer();

// Now you only need to add the necessary stuff
$mail->AddAddress("txyz@gmail.com", "xyz");
$mail->AddAttachment("c:/11.txt","123.txt","base64", "application/octet-stream");  //
$mail->Subject = "Here is the subject";
$mail->Body    = "This is the message body";

if(!$mail->Send())
{
   echo "There was an error sending the message";
   exit;
      } else {
echo "Message was sent successfully";  
}


?>

try just adding the file without the encoding information.

$mail->AddAttachment("c:/11.txt","123.txt");  //  assuming your running this on windows and the file exists

The command to attach a file can be placed anywhere between $mail = new PHPMailer(); and !$mail->Send(); and it's called AddAttachment($path);. This single line will add the attachment to your mail.

$path is the path of the filename. It can be a relative one (from your script, not the PHPMailer class) or a full path to the file you want to attach.

I don't think you can refer to the file in terms of your drive letter (c:/...) but just to be sure, why don't you try placing the 11.txt file in the same directory as your script, and simply change your line to:

$mail->AddAttachment("11.txt","123.txt");

see if this works?
