  Subject: file attachment problems with hotmail accounts
  Posted: 04/15/2004 at 7:02:48 pm

So far I've had great success with this script. Was easy to setup and integrated very well into the website. But when an attachment (currently PDF) is sent to a hotmail account it shows the binary data as part of the e-mail not as an attachment. Any ideas?

If this is the case the three variables in bizmail.cgi should be configured as follows. This is of course if you are using 2.1 - if not you will want to upgrade as there where some problems with some servers in previous versions:

$att_format = ".pdf"; ## File attachement extension, or file type (basicaly .exstension ) ##


# $att_content_type IS THE CONTENT-TYPE OF THE ATTACHMENT #

$att_content_type = "pdf"; # FORMAT FOR A "PDF" #

If these are set correctly and it is still not working, I would first try it with another email provider. If it still does not work let me know and I will try and think of something else. Also what type of server are you on.

Hi Seth,
Those settings were correct in the script. The script is running on a UNIX server (not sure what type) with a Apache web server. After giving your posting some thought I tried these settings ad it worked.

$att_format = ".pdf"; ## File attachement extension, or file type (basicaly .exstension ) ##
$att_content_type = "application/pdf"; # FORMAT FOR A "PDF" #

Thanks for the help
Paul
