PHP/Pear Mail script not sending attachments

Hi,

I am writing a php application, and one part of the requirement is to mail a pdf file to someone.

I downloaded a script to use as my mail server needs smtp authentication etc.

Whilst the script DOES generate an email as expected, the actual email has loads of random rubbish in the body.

I changed the mime type to application/pdf but still I get loads of rubbish and no actual attachment.

I have shown the code from my script - can someone please fix it for me?

Thanks.
include('Mail.php');
include('Mail/mime.php');
 
$text = 'Text version of email';
$html = '<html><body>HTML version of email</body></html>';
$file = './quote.pdf';
$crlf = "rn";
$hdrs = array(
              'From'    => 'xxx@xxx.co.uk',
              'To'      => 'xxx.xxx@xxx.com',
              'Subject' => 'Your Quotation'
              );
			  
$params = array(
				'host' => "ssl://mail.xxx.co.uk",
				'port' => "465",
				'username' => "xxx",
				'password' => "xxx"
				);
 
    $mime = new Mail_mime($crlf);
 
        $mime->setTXTBody($text);
        $mime->setHTMLBody($html);
 
        $mime->addAttachment($file,'application/pdf');
 
$body = $mime->get();
$hdrs = $mime->headers($hdrs);
 
$mail =& Mail::factory('smtp', $params);
$mail->send('xxx@xxx.com', $hdrs, $body);

Correct line #7, You wrote:
$crlf = "rn";

Open in new window

must be:
$crlf = "\n";

Open in new window

or don't set the $crlf parameter in line #21
$mime = new Mail_mime();

Open in new window



Normally, it is not necessary to set the $crlf parameter. But, if you want to send the generated MIME message using Mail then you have to set $crlf to "\n"
