I have configures the MailForm Clone cgi script and everything works great, except two things:

1. When a file is attached using a file-type input tag in a form, the "required" field of the script does not recognize it.

2. In the same situation, disabling the "required" flied, the form is sent, but not the attached file. I get the following in the body of the email:

file-[path to the file in my system and file name]: /tmp/cpanel.TMP.p2rx8zqTw_6yOYkB

Since I don't receive the file as an attachemtn in the email generated by the script, I tried following this rute:
: /tmp/cpanel.TMP.p2rx8zqTw_6yOYkB
after my domain, but I cannot access the sent files.

When I tested the script, the files were actually uploaded ¿how can I get the script to attached the files o how can I retreive the files from the server (if they are stored there)?

Formmail.php Jul 28, 2005

I really can't help you with your issue, but being fed up with configurations. I tried formmail.php which is so much easier to use, no playing around with paths and the like, just upload main file to the root and change your form and it works pretty good.
