Hi, I have attached the code to my email function.

I am having problems modifying it so that I can add attachments.
 
Can anyone help me out here?
function my_mail($to, $subject, $message, $from="", $charset="", $headers="", $html_email=0, $cc_admin=0)
	{
		global $db, $mybb, $lang;
	
		if(empty($charset))
		{
			$charset = "UTF-8";
		}
	
		// Build mail headers
		if (empty($from))
		{
			$from = "\"Graphix Labels\" <jsette@enterit.com.au>";
		}
		
		$headers .= "From: {$from}\n";
		$headers .= "Return-Path: {jsette@enterit.com.au}\n";
		
		if($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'])
		{
			$http_host = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'];
		}
		else if($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'])
		{
			$http_host = $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'];
		}
		else
		{
			$http_host = "unknown.local";
		}
		
		// Changed for HTML format
		$headers .= "Message-ID: <". md5(uniqid(time()))."@{$http_host}>\n";
		$headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";
		
		if ($html_email == 1){
			$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset=\"{$charset}\"\n";
		}
		else
		{
			$headers .= "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=\"{$charset}\"\n";
		}
		
		
		$headers .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\n";
		$headers .= "X-Priority: 3\n";
		$headers .= "X-MSMail-Priority: Normal\n";
		$headers .= "X-Mailer: MyBB\n";
		
		//if(defined("IN_ADMINCP"))
		//{
		//	$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = str_replace($mybb->config['admin_dir']."/", "admin-", $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']);
		//}
		
		$headers .= "X-MyBB-Script: {$http_host}{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}\n";
		
		if ($cc_admin == 1 ){
			$headers .= "Bcc: jsette@enterit.com.au \n"; // BCC to Enter IT (for testing purposes)
		}
	
		// For some reason sendmail/qmail doesn't like \r\n
		$sendmail = @ini_get('sendmail_path');
		if($sendmail)
		{
			$headers = preg_replace("#(\r\n|\r|\n)#s", "\n", $headers);
			$message = preg_replace("#(\r\n|\r|\n)#s", "\n", $message);
		}
		else
		{
			$headers = preg_replace("#(\r\n|\r|\n)#s", "\r\n", $headers);
			$message = preg_replace("#(\r\n|\r|\n)#s", "\r\n", $message);
		}
	
		mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
	}

To use attachments use a PHP mailer class which can do that and will save you days of work. I recommend
http://phpmailer.sf.net
http://swiftmailer.sf.net
Easy to install and to use.  Recoding the attachment part for mails is very complicated and typical full of bugs. So don't write this part by your own. Use those well tested and working classes.
