no it means you included the PEAR files the wrong way.
Try
include_once 'Mail.php';
include_once 'Mail/mime.php';

PHP will go through the include_path and try to find Mail.php as
./Mail.php
/usr/share/pear-php5/Mail.php

If you donÄt need to use the PEAR installation of your hoster.
Read COMPLETLY http://pear.php.net/manual/en/installation.shared.php special the second topic

I dont think I can its a fasthost account and I found out pear is installed because I dit the following
<?php
require_once 'System.php';  
var_dump(class_exists('System'));
require_once 'PEAR.php';
var_dump(class_exists('PEAR'));

phpinfo ();
?>

And I get
bool(true) bool(true)
which means pear is installed
but I found out pear is installed with php
so I did

<?php
/* $path = "/usr/local/bin/pear";
set_include_path(get_include_path() . PATH_SEPARATOR . $path); */
require_once 'System.php';  
var_dump(class_exists('System'));
require_once 'PEAR.php';
var_dump(class_exists('PEAR'));
require_once 'Mail.php';
var_dump(class_exists('Mail'));
require_once 'Mail/mime.php';
var_dump(class_exists('mime'));
phpinfo ();
?>

and I get
bool(true) bool(true) bool(false) bool(false)
so how can I fix that

You can't fix this. PEAR is installed, but not Mail_Mime. You need to put those files/Classes via ssh/ftp/.. to the server in your own directory or use your own PEAR-instllation as descibed in the pear manual

why though if pear is installed why do I get a fatal class error on Mail_mime
I have another sendmail script that uses mail() and that works on the server with no problem without include_once
so the path is correct. It just doesn't work with attachments as the fifth element in mail() is set by fasthost to be a username on their servers

mail($emailadd, $subject, $text, "From: $fromadd", "-f".$fromadd );
where normally it would be
mail($emailadd, $subject, $text, "From: $fromadd", $attachment );

Mail_mie is not part of the default pear installation and also has nothing to do with the php build in function mail. If you need attachemnt use
http://swiftmailer.sf.net or
http://phpmailer.sf.net

fixed myself by getting rid of pear and using mail()
<?php
$fileatt = ''; // Path to the file
$fileatt_type = "application/octet-stream"; // File Type
$fileatt_name = "test"; // Filename that will be used for the file as the attachment
$fromadd = 'ian@ian.no1net.co.uk'; // used for the fifth element in fasthost
$email_from = 'ian@gbpost.com'; // Who the email is from
$email_subject = "testing"; // The Subject of the email
$email_txt = "testing with attachment"; // Message that the email has in it

$email_to = $_POST['email address']; // Who the email is too

$headers = "From: ".$email_from;

$file = fopen($fileatt,'rb');
$data = fread($file,filesize($fileatt));
fclose($file);

$semi_rand = md5(time());
$mime_boundary = "==Multipart_Boundary_x{$semi_rand}x";

$headers .= "\nMIME-Version: 1.0\n" .
"Content-Type: multipart/mixed;\n" .
" boundary=\"{$mime_boundary}\"";

$email_message .= $email_txt;
// --------------------------Do not edit below this line--------------------------
$text = "<br>\nResults from form:\n\n";
$space = ' ';
$line = '
';
foreach ($_POST as $key => $value)
{
if ($req == '1')
{
if ($value == '')
{echo "$key is empty. Click the back button to return to the form";die;}
}
$j = strlen($key);
if ($j >= 20)
{echo "Name of form element $key cannot be longer than 20 characters";die;}
$j = 20 - $j;

for ($i = 1; $i <= $j; $i++)
{$space .= ' ';}
$value = str_replace('\n', "$line", $value);
$conc = "{$key}:$space{$value}$line<br>";
$text .= $conc;
$space = ' ';
}

$email_message .= $text;
$email_message .= "This is a multi-part message in MIME format.\n\n" .
"--{$mime_boundary}\n" .
"Content-Type:text/html; charset=\"iso-8859-1\"\n" .
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit\n\n" .
$email_message . "\n\n";

$data = chunk_split(base64_encode($data));

$email_message .= "--{$mime_boundary}\n" .
"Content-Type: {$fileatt_type};\n" .
" name=\"{$fileatt_name}\"\n" .
//"Content-Disposition: attachment;\n" .
//" filename=\"{$fileatt_name}\"\n" .
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\n\n" .
$data . "\n\n" .
"--{$mime_boundary}--\n";


$ok = @mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers,"-f".$fromadd);

if($ok) {
echo "<font face=verdana size=2>The file was successfully sent!</font>";
} else {
die("Sorry but the email could not be sent. Please go back and try again!");
}
?>
work brilliantly now
