RE: [Phpgroupware-users] Sending email with attachments

To answer my own question:

Apparantely the msg function in the phpgwapi/inc/ file
accepts a mime 'boundary' variable, which can be used to separate the
text of the message from the attachments.  So, what I have done is
separate the attachments with a  mime boundary and the correct headers,
then attach that to the end of the body message, and send the new
message body along with the mime boundary to the send class.....and
Wahoo!, it works.  

Thanks for the help.

Ps. I am not using the email app other than to be able to send user has rights to that app so storing it to the Sent folder
is not necessary.  However, the emails are not only sent to registered
users, but to extra participants as well...something else I have added
to the calendar.

I think what you want to do is a good idea, but could be problematic

Are you planning on emailing the attachments to phpgw users only?  If
you are the VFS is a better choice.  Just to include a link to the file
in the VFS.

I hope in head (which will become 18 one day) that we can support saving
attachments in the VFS and also direct import of v/iCals into calendar
from attachments.

Just some ideas, sorry I don't have the answers.
