Sending Attachment with Email

Example

<?php
// request variables // important
$from = $_REQUEST["from"];
$emaila = $_REQUEST["emaila"];
$filea = $_REQUEST["filea"];

if ($filea) {
function mail_attachment ($from , $to, $subject, $message, $attachment){
$fileatt = $attachment; // Path to the file
$fileatt_type = "application/octet-stream"; // File Type

$start = strrpos($attachment, '/') == -1 ?
strrpos($attachment, '//') : strrpos($attachment, '/')+1;

$fileatt_name = substr($attachment, $start,
strlen($attachment)); // Filename that will be used for the
file as the attachment

$email_from = $from; // Who the email is from
$subject = "New Attachment Message";

$email_subject = $subject; // The Subject of the email
$email_txt = $message; // Message that the email has in it
$email_to = $to; // Who the email is to

$headers = "From: ".$email_from;
$file = fopen($fileatt,'rb');
$data = fread($file,filesize($fileatt));
fclose($file);

$msg_txt="\n\n You have recieved a new attachment message from $from";
$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_txt .= $msg_txt;

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

if($ok) {
echo "File Sent Successfully.";
unlink($attachment); // delete a file after attachment sent.
}else {
die("Sorry but the email could not be sent. Please go back and try again!");
}
}
move_uploaded_file($_FILES["filea"]["tmp_name"],
