I’ve put together a little tutorial stack for those who want to send email from their server, rather than from the user’s local email system. This can be very useful when users sit at different and possibly public computers, where there may be no email system installed, or where the configuration may not be suitable for your app.
The tutorial provides the livecode script and a php script for you to put on your server. It allows you to send an attachment, and could be modified for more.
Re: Sending emails, with attachments, on your server
You're welcome. Seems php isn't very popular here, but I find it very convenient and fast, and already integrated into most server situations. Of course, since I've programmed in numerous other languages, it isn't a big deal, and avoids some of the issues with Livecode that are a result of the massive changes being implemented. I don't mean to be critical of lc, but php has had many years of refinement, has massive documentation and help, and for very small jobs like online db communication and file management, it is an effective solution.
