    hey guys i got this php code and i tried it out and it sends it to my emai only that it contains nothing (0bytes) i want to be able to send pictures or a video and what not how do i do that?

    $fileatt = ""; // Path to the file
    $fileatt_type = "application/octet-stream"; // File Type
    $fileatt_name = ""; // Filename that will be used for the file as the attachment

    $email_from = ""; // Who the email is from
    $email_subject = ""; // The Subject of the email
    $email_txt = ""; // Message that the email has in it

    $email_to = ""; // Who the email is too

    $headers = "From: ".$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);

    if($ok) {
    echo "<font face=verdana size=2>The file was successfully sent!</font>";
    } else {
    die("Sorry but the email could not be sent. Please go back and try again!");
