@ehpratah

i can upload the file and send it but the prolem is when i try to dowload the file from the email it has no data as in "0 bytes"..any suggestion or insight please thanks..i just modify this code for my needs...

I look over your code and everything seems right.

I think you used this code:

http://www.koderguru.com/tutorials/phptutorials/ftp.php

and also phpmailer?

The only thing might be the issue is ftp_put() function.

$upload = ftp_put($conn_id, $destination_file, $source_file, FTP_BINARY); 

Instead of ftp_put() function try to used ftp_get() function.

$upload = ftp_get($conn_id, $destination_file, $source_file, FTP_BINARY); 

I know you answer your own question. So you will be the only one that knows the correct answer.
