Japanese email text and how to attach files to email

#1 Postby jimrws » Feb 05, 2008 12:11 pm

Hi,

    1. I'm looking to support Japanese versions of my forms so I need to display Japanese text in emails as html. Previously I've done this using

    Code: Select all

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=shift_jis">
    But this just gets overwritten when the email is processed.
    Is there a way(preferably an easy one) to control charset, without changing too much code?
    2. I also want to attach uploaded files to the emails, is this possible to do with the existing code?


Thanks for any help.

Jim.

Try this: in upload.cgi find

Code: Select all

Subject: $subject
Content-Type: text/html


and change Conent-type line to

Code: Select all

Content-Type: text/html;charset=shift_jis


at least this works 100% in browser, never tested for emails.

Thanks, that seems to work.

Any idea on my second problem above? (attaching the files to email)

This is part of source code from our internal projects to send email with file attached:

Code: Select all

use MIME::Lite;
### Create the multipart container
my $msg = MIME::Lite->new (
  From => $from_address,
  To => $to_address,
  Subject => $subject,
  Type =>'multipart/mixed'
) or die "Error creating multipart container: $!\n";

### Add the text message part
$msg->attach (
  Type => 'text/html',
  Data => $body
);

### Add the attached file
$msg->attach (
   Type => 'application/octet-stream',
   Path => $save_attach_to."$title.$file_ext",
   Filename => "$file_path",
   Disposition => 'attachment'
);

### Send the Message
MIME::Lite->send('smtp', $mail_host, Timeout=>60);
$msg->send;


We can integrate it into your code for $20 if you want.
