[PHP] Email Attachment – PDF In Email Attachment

Hi Friends , yesterday I was working with email attachment and I wanted to send pdf file as email attachment but It was giving me so many problems. I have searched so many code for PDF attachment but no one was working So I start tp debug code and finally  made working pdf attachment code by pdf attachment in email worked successfully.


$fileatt = “test.pdf”; // Path to the file

$fileatt_type = “application/pdf”; // File Type

$fileatt_name = “test.pdf”; // Filename that will be used for the file as the attachment

$email_from = “noreply@hackingethics.com”; // Who the email is from

$email_subject = “Your attached file”; // The Subject of the email

$email_message = “Thanks for visiting <a href=”http://www.hackingethics.com/&#8221; target=”_blank” title=”More about HackingEthics »”>HackingEthics</a>.com! <br>”;

$email_message .= “Thanks for visiting.<br>”; // Message that the email has in it

$email_to = “xyz@gmail.com”; // Who the email is to

$headers = “From: “.$email_from;

$file = fopen($fileatt,’rb’);

$data = fread($file,filesize($fileatt));


$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”;

$data = chunk_split(base64_encode($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” .


$sent = @mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers);

if($sent) {

echo “Your email attachment has been Worked.”;

} else {

die(“Sorry but the email could not be sent. Please go back and try again!”);



Replace your email address in $email_to and filename in $fileatt and $fileatt_name.
