Universal Email not attaching document to recipient

Hi All,

I'm using Universal email in a PHP site and I have gotten the mail to send and CC to whom it supposed to on Godaddy but I'm having two problems.


1st problem, the form only has 4 fields Name, Company, Email, and a checkbox. Only two fields are being passed to the body of the email.

2nd problem, The email is supposed to send a document attachment to the recipient after form submission, I can see it's trying to attach the document in Godaddy but ut stops there and doesn't get passed to the recipient.

The URL is index_new.php

I'm not real familiar if at all with PHP, can someone shed some light on this for me and help to solve these issues?

Thanks

in debugging this issue we found that the reference to the file was not quite correct. We changed:

php:
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddAttachment($WA_MailObject,"/docs/Special-Report_Top-3_Mistakes.pdf");



to:

php:
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddAttachment($WA_MailObject,realpath("docs/Special-Report_Top-3_Mistakes.pdf"));



To get the file attached. In this case, it was coming through with a .dat file extesnion however.

We found that there where some missing semi colons in the WA_UniversalEmail\Mail_for_Linux_PHP.php file that was shipped with Universal Email 2.8.

I changed lines 234 - 236:

php:
$mailAttachments .= " name=\"".basename($fileArr[3])."\"".$lineEnd;
$mailAttachments .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: ".$fileArr[1].$lineEnd;
$mailAttachments .= "Content-Disposition: inline";



to:

php:
$mailAttachments .= "; name=\"".basename($fileArr[3])."\"".$lineEnd;
$mailAttachments .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: ".$fileArr[1].$lineEnd;
$mailAttachments .= "Content-Disposition: inline;";





to fix that problem.
