this is a script that I made and have used for a long time... need to modify it..
currently, it sends an email with a text file attached.  now I need it to send it
with a zip file attached...

the infor in in the script remarks...

Q:  how to I set up the headers, etc. to attach a zip file instead?

$fileatt_type = "text/plain"; // File Type
$fileatt_name = "VQ.TXT"; // VQTestHistory.zip is the new attachment
$email_message = "VQ Test History \n"; // Message that the email has in it
$email_to = "me@here.com"; // Who the email is too
$headers = "From: me@here.com";
$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}\"";

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

/********************************************** First File ********************************************/

//$filleant takes the value of the picture that was jut uploaded with the unique name to the ftp in the www.yourname.com/upload/upload
$fileatt = "./VQ.TXT"; // Path to the file
$fileatt_type = "text/plain"; // File Type
$fileatt_name = "VQ.TXT"; // Filename that will be used for the file as the attachment
$file = fopen($fileatt,'rb');
$data = fread($file,filesize($fileatt));
$data = chunk_split(base64_encode($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" .

/********************************************** End of File Config ********************************************/

// To add more files just copy the file section again, but make sure they are all one after the other! If they are not it will not work!
$subjectfront="VQ Test History ";

$email_subject = VQ Test History; // Subject that the email has in it

$ok = @mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers);
if($ok) {
echo "<center><H2><font color='RED'>THE FILES WERE SUCCESSFULLY SENT!</h2></font>";
} else {
die("Sorry but the email could not be sent. Please go back and try again!");

you could probably get a few ideas off http://phpmailer.sou.../extending.html

It has advanced attachment functions but relies on a sql server..
