Default Send mail and attachments with PHP mail function

Hi,
I have this script which I have downloaded from a tutorial site.
I wonder what is wrong with this script when I'm not so good to spot the error. Script works fine and It sends the file and every thing.
But when the attachment arrives to my mail the file is empty.
What is wrong?? please help me.
<html>
<head>
<title> Sending Email </title>
</head>
<body>
<?php
// Read POST request params into global vars
$to = $_POST['to'];
$from = $_POST['from'];
$subject = $_POST['subject'];
$message = $_POST['message'];

// Obtain file upload vars
$fileatt = $_FILES['fileatt']['tmp_name'];
$fileatt_type = $_FILES['fileatt']['type'];
$fileatt_name = $_FILES['fileatt']['name'];

$headers = "From: $from";

if (is_uploaded_file($fileatt)) {
  // Read the file to be attached ('rb' = read binary)
  $file = fopen($fileatt,'rb');
  $data = fread($file,filesize($fileatt));
  fclose($file);

  // Generate a boundary string
  $semi_rand = md5(time());
  $mime_boundary = "==Multipart_Boundary_x{$semi_rand}x";

  // Add the headers for a file attachment
  $headers .= "\nMIME-Version: 1.0\n" .
              "Content-Type: multipart/mixed;\n" .
              " boundary=\"{$mime_boundary}\"";

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

  // Base64 encode the file data
  $data = chunk_split(base64_encode($data));

  // Add file attachment to the message
  $message .= "--{$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" .
              $data . "\n\n" .
              "--{$mime_boundary}--\n";
}

// Send the message
$ok = @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
if ($ok) {
  echo "<p>Mail sent! Yay PHP!</p>";
} else {
  echo "<p>Mail could not be sent. Sorry!</p>";
}
?>
</body>
</html>

It looks like you have gone over the top with the line breaks and some of your headers are running onto two lines, e.g. in the file attachment headers. You can out breaks in the lines to make the code readable, but I think you need to delete some \ns. Try this:



// Add the headers for a file attachment
$headers .= "\nMIME-Version: 1.0\n" .
            "Content-Type: multipart/mixed;" .
            " boundary=\"{$mime_boundary}\"";

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

// Base64 encode the file data
$data = chunk_split(base64_encode($data));

// Add file attachment to the message
$message .= "--{$mime_boundary}\n" .
            "Content-Type: {$fileatt_type}; name=\"{$fileatt_name}\"\n" .
            //"Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"{$fileatt_name}\"" .
            "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\n\n" .
            $data . "\n\n" .
            "--{$mime_boundary}--\n";
