Where do you "addAttachement" and reference the uploaded file? I think you did not post your complete code.

Yes I remove all the php code for the implementation of attachement because it didn't work. I try several times,  So I was wondering where and how I can reference the uploaded file you see in the Html in my "clean" php script who works for sending mail ?  Thank's for your reply

SwiftMailer is also another good one, I use it and it's very simple to use and has good community support:

Just a small section of a small script

/* create message */
        $message = (new Swift_Message('A email from ' . $data['name']))
                ->setFrom([$data['email'] => $data['name']])
                ->setCc([$data['email'] => $data['name']])
                ->setBody($data['message'], 'text/html')
                ->attach(entity: Swift_Attachment::fromPath('https://www.example.com/assets/images/img-logo-003.jpg'));
