$fileName = $_FILES["attached_file"]["name"]; // The file name

$fileType = $_FILES["attached_file"]["type"]; // The type of file it is
$fileSize = $_FILES["attached_file"]["size"]; // File size in bytes
$fileErrorMsg = $_FILES["attached_file"]["error"]; // 0 for false... and 1 for true

move_uploaded_file($fileTmpLoc, "upload/$fileName");

Hi Everyone,

Dear Robert, you have gave me the link for sending email but my Qs regarding to get the enquires from end users just like a contact form where i'll receive on my mail (abc@gmail.com), for this how i'll get the attached file.

Can some one resolve the above problem of uploading and email of file...

After uploading file to your server, you can add it path to attachment in email.
