    Hi all,

    My experience with PHP is ‘beginner’ at best. I was looking into creating a simple(probably not) form that would gather a name, email address, description field, browse for an image, and submit. I want the result to be an email sent to a target address that displays the info prompted by the form, and the image file sent as an attachment despite its size.

    IS THAT POSSIBLE? I found a few examples on the net that explains how to build an input field, but nothing really explains what happens to the file (or whatever) after you hit ‘submit’.

    Is there a way to define where its sent, like as an email attachment, or to a dedicated url on a server? How about making sure that the browsed file is an image file?

    Need help.
