i have write a php script for sending an email with an attachment.
under linux and php 4xx it works fine.
but under windows 2003 with php 5.1.1 the attachment image dont show correct. the attachment size is only 3kb but the real size is more. and if i save the attacment. so i can open the attachment and it show correctly.

here the code :

function sendmail ($Sender,$Senderadresse, $Empfaenger, $Betreff, $Mitteilung,$Dateiname, $Dateibezeichnung,$Dateityp)
$Header = "From: $Sender <$Senderadresse>"; 
$Trenner = md5(uniqid(time())); 
$Header .= $lb; 
$Header .= "MIME-Version: 1.0"; 
$Header .= $lb; 
$Header .= "Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=$Trenner"; 
$Header .= $lb." ".$lb; 
$Header .= "This is a multi-part message in MIME format"; 
$Header .= $lb.$lb;
$Header .= "--$Trenner"; 
$Header .= $lb; 
$Header .= "Content-Type: text/plain"; 
$Header .= $lb; 
$Header .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit"; 
$Header .= $lb.$lb; 
$Header .= $Mitteilung;
$Header .= $lb; 
$Header .= "--$Trenner"; 
$Header .= $lb; 
$Header .= "Content-Type: $Dateityp; name=$Dateibezeichnung"; 
$Header .= $lb; 
$Header .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64"; 
$Header .= $lb; 
$Header .= "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$Dateibezeichnung"; 
$Header .= $lb.$lb; 
$Dateiinhalt = fread(fopen($Dateiname, "r"), filesize($Dateiname)); 
$Header .= chunk_split(base64_encode($Dateiinhalt)); 
$Header .= $lb.$lb;
$Header .= "--$Trenner--"; 

 if (mail($Empfaenger, $Betreff,"", $Header)){ $Header = nl2br($Header);
echo $Header; return "true"; }

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a

appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
