I have a form which a user fills out and submits. This will take the user to a review page where they can then either go back and make changes or submit their information. The user is then taken to a confirmation page.

I used FPDF to create the pdf. I need the information the user filled out to populate this PDF and then email an attachment of the file to their email and to an email with my company. I assume that creating an isset($_POST['Submit'] if statement on the review page and sending the email there would be my best course? I'm really not sure.

I'm new to PHP programming and still trying to learn but I am stuck. I just don't know how to do this. There is A LOT of code involved in this. I'll post the top portions of each page.



if(isset($_POST["Submit"])) {
    //generate pdf

    //save pdf

    //attach pdf to email

    //if commerical mail to mobile homes mhpublicassistance@mail.maricopa.gov   
    $mail = new PHPMailer();
    $mail->IsSMTP();                                      // Set mailer to use SMTP
    $mail->Host = 'mailbox.maricopa.gov';  // Specify main and backup server
    $mail->SMTPAuth = false;                               // Enable SMTP authentication

    $mail->From = 'dillonm@mail.maricopa.gov';
    $mail->FromName = 'Maricopa County Assessor';
    $mail->AddAddress(EMAIL_ADDRESS_504_FORM);  // Add a recipient
    $mail->Subject =  "504 Request";
    $mail->Body = 'Attached is a PDF copy of your request. A copy has also been sent to Maricopa County Assessor.

    if(!$mail->Send()) {
        print 'No Mail!!! ' . $mail->ErrorInfo;

    //otherwise, mail to pubasst@mail.maricopa.gov

try this one it will work fine...

$fileatt = "Profile.pdf"; // Path to the file                  
$fileatt_type = "application/pdf"; // File Type  
$fileatt_name = "Profile.pdf"; // Filename that will be used for the file as the attachment  
$email_from = "test@example.com"; // Who the email is from

$subject = "Company Profile";
$message = "Mail ID request Profile\n\n";
$message .= "User with $email_to has Requested and got the profile pdf \r\n";   
$email_subject = "Profile"; // The Subject of the email  
$email_message = "Thank you for using example.in Please find profile attachment file..\n\n<br>";
//$email_message .= "Thanks for visiting.<br>"; // Message that the email has in it  
$email_to = $_POST['email']; // 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" .  

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

Thank you for that! I haven't even gotten to the mail part yet :[ But I will try that when I do. :)

I'm still trying to tie in the pdf part. I can't seem to get the fields populated with the data. Then it would need to be saved with a randomly generated name on the server.
