Hello there,

i hope you guys/gals can give me some help on this case. I need a working attachment thing for my website to send e-cards. I am so glad that after a long while i got the email thing to work. but i cant figure out on how to get the embedded stuff. I sincerely hope you can help. this has to be finished before monday unfortunately,so please hurry a bit :D i hope you can be my saviour :D. My current code is as posted below and attachment name= "ecard1.jpg".

<?php
// controleren of de pagina zichzelf heeft aangeroepen.
// Zo ja, de e-mail verzenden.
if (!empty($_POST)){

$bedankt_pagina = "ecards.html";
// variabelen voor mail() initialiseren. In werkelijkheid nog beveiliging/validatie toevoegen!
$ontvanger = $_POST["email_vriend"];
$onderwerp = $_POST["eigennaam"] . " heeft je een e-card gestuurd";
$bericht = "Je hebt een bericht ontvangen van " . $_POST["eigennaam"] ;
$bericht .= "(". $_POST["eigen_email"] ."). Hij schrijft het volgende: \n\n";
$bericht .= $_POST["bericht"];

// het e-mailbericht verzenden
if (!mail($ontvanger, $onderwerp, $bericht)){
echo "Er is een fout opgetreden bij het verzenden van e-mail";
}
else{
// succesvol verzonden, doorsturen naar bedankt-pagina
header("location:$bedankt_pagina");
}
}
else{

?>

Not sure about embedding it....but if you create the link with the absolute path rather than just ecard1.jpg...so in other words

[a href=\"http://www.mydomain.com/myfolder/pictures/ecard1.jpg\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.mydomain.com/myfolder/pictures/ecard1.jpg[/a]

it will work

Will
Wait...I've got it...Bollocks, it's gone again!

If at first you don't succeed....stop using ASP and get onto PHP

the file is not even attached yet. what is the correct code for that and where to add it exactly. i am kind of lost big-time :D this is my first .php script ever so i have no real idea on how to do that either. this script took me 6 hours to find out :s if you could provide me with the piece of script on how to attach (and hopefuly embed), i would give you a virtual bottle of whisky :)
[a href=\"http://04025.06sc.thinkquest.nl/ecard1.jpg\" target=\"_blank\"]http://04025.06sc.thinkquest.nl/ecard1.jpg[/a] it is password protected though. i can supply that if it is really necessary , it will go public in a few days anyway :D

I may be way of track here...but I am assuming that the mail you are sending is in HTML format. Is this correct?

If so you create the mail just like a page. In a page you only link to images...you do not embed them. If a email client can read HTML then it will link to the file and display it normally.

To add to your problem...you need to be sending both an HTML version and plain text for those of us who choose not to read HTML files and the others of us who have the Dfault settings in Outlook sett to remove all images.

Let me know a bit more about your process, goal etc and I will try to help

so far i am only sending a text file. i have no clue what so ever on how to send a html file :( The goal is for people to pick a ecard from a simple html table,linking to this page,where after entering some details like email and name,sends an ecard to the receiver. the image must be sent with it,on the way an image is displayed "inline"on a forum. As you said,i think it would indeed be the handiest to do in html-style email. I prefer to keep things simple,so that i myself can understand. I hope this is enough information for you ,to work with,otherwise, let me know :) im very new to php and also fairly new to computer forums :) (i am a long time meber on automotive forums though). i might not know all the termininology (sp?).

cya,

sjoerd

edit: specifically i am looking for the way how to attach images and how to embed them. give the code for it,and the way how to use them where in my file and i will be very grateful :)

thank you. if i understand this corectly, i will have to write a new html page with the image in it.

where do i put the custom message entered then ? what code is used to do that :? should i put it in between the html file ? etcetera.
This is what i have so far:

<?php
$toemail= "$_POST["email_vriend"];
$subject = $_POST["eigennaam"] . " heeft je een e-card gestuurd";
$textversion .="Je hebt een bericht ontvangen van " . $_POST["eigennaam"] ;
$textversion .="(". $_POST["eigen_email"] ."). Hij schrijft het volgende: \n\n";
$textversion .= $_POST["bericht"];
$html=<<<HTML_OUTPUT

<html>
<body>
<img src="http://04025.06.sc.thinkquest.nl/ecard1.jpg"
<?php $_POST["bericht"]
?>
</body>
</html>


HTML_OUTPUT;

//Mail in TEXT and HTML with Headers

$headers = "From: xxx \r\n";
$headers .="Reply-to: xxx \r\n";
$headers. ="MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$boundary = uniqid ("something");
$headers . ="Content-Type: multipart/alternative" . "; boundary = $boundary\r\n\r\n";
$headers .="This is a MIME encoded message. \r\n\r\n":
$headers .="--$boundary\r\n" . "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1\r\n" ."Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\r\n\r\n";
$headers .= chunk_split(base64_encode("$textversion"));
$headers .="--$boundary\r\n" . "Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1\r\n" . "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\r\n\r\n";
$headers .= chunk_split(base64_encode("$html"));
mail($toemail, "$subject", "", $headers);
?>

now what should i enter as html output,is the link to the custom message ot "bericht"correct and is the other stuff correct ?

For now i will go to sleep. i will check back here tomorrow morning (early).
bye
sjoerd

The custom message is entered how...by form?

If so you would simpoly collect that data and add it into the html page.

But be careful....

In HTML the process would be this

<? $custom_msg= $_POST['formfiled'];?>


<div class="message"><? echo $custom_msg;?></div> or something very similar.



However

in the >>>HTML_OUTPUT

it simply has to be

$custom_msg (where this value has already been set of course)

WHY??? well the <? PHP are already open in your .php document and you are simply telling the php processor that you have HTML output where as in a normal HTML page you have to open the <? tags to start the processor and then close tthe ?> to parse the rest as normal HTML
