I am trying to send an attachment in email using following code:
//Get a JMail instance
$mail = &JFactory::getMailer();
//Are we sending the email as HTML?
// Recipient emailId
// Attachment file
$mail->addAttachment($_FILES['intro']['tmp_name'], $_FILES['intro']['name'], $encoding, $_FILES['intro']['type']);
It works fine, but the issue is that the file is sent with temp name and no extension whatsover and not with original name and extension, however, if i access the file it opens fine.
What am i doing wrong here, please suggest!
You’ll need to encode the attachment file type.
That should then work fine.
I’ve already used encoding as:
and used it here:
$mail->addAttachment($_FILES[‘intro’][‘tmp_name’], $_FILES[‘intro’][‘name’], $encoding, $_FILES[‘intro’][‘type’]);
It’s the file type encoding that you need to set up.
Try searching for Content-Type:
For example for PDF’s I use:
$fileatt_type = "application/octet-stream";
You’ll then need to pass that in the headers of the email.
I tried this one as well:
$mail->addAttachment($_FILES[‘resume’][‘tmp_name’], $_FILES[‘resume’][‘name’], $encoding, $type = “application/octet-stream”);
