  • Generic Send_Email_Attachment Function

    Pretty annoying to have to install a custom module just to get the ability to attach files to an email. The current built in function only needs the ability to change the message. I.e.,

    It defaults to: By your request, Miva Merchant has emailed your exported file 'xxxxxx' from your 'Store Name Here' store.

    Which makes it useless to send emails to customers...

    You should be able to do something like this
    Code:
    <MvASSIGN NAME = "l.null"           VALUE = "{ [ g.Module_Library_Utilities ].StartMimeEmail( l.email_structure ) }">
    <MvASSIGN NAME = "l.null"           VALUE = "{ [ g.Module_Library_Utilities ].GenerateAttachmentMIME( l.email_structure, '', 'filename', 'filepath', 'script/data' ) }">
    <MvASSIGN NAME = "l.email"          VALUE = "">
    <MvASSIGN NAME = "l.email:to"       VALUE = "<to_address>">
    <MvASSIGN NAME = "l.email:from"     VALUE = "<from_address>">
    <MvASSIGN NAME = "l.email:subject"  VALUE = "<subject>">
    
    <MvIF EXPR = "{ NOT [ g.Module_Library_Utilities ].v9_SendMimeEmail( l.email_structure, l.email ) }">
        <MvEVAL EXPR = "{ 'Failed to send email' }">
    <MvELSE>
        <MvEVAL EXPR = "{ 'Email sent' }">
    </MvIF>
    or

    Code:
    <mvt:do name="l.null" file="g.Module_Library_Utilities" value="StartMimeEmail( l.email_structure )" />
    <mvt:do name="l.null" file="g.Module_Library_Utilities" value="GenerateAttachmentMIME( l.email_structure, '', 'filename', 'filepath', 'script/data' )" />
    <mvt:assign name="l.email"            value="''" />
    <mvt:assign name="l.email:to"         value="'<to_address>'" />
    <mvt:assign name="l.email:from"       value="'<from_address>'" />
    <mvt:assign name="l.email:subject"    value="'<subject>'" />
    <mvt:do name="l.result" file="g.Module_Library_Utilities" value="v9_SendMimeEmail( l.email_structure, l.email )" />
    
    <mvt:if expr="NOT l.result">
        <mvt:eval expr="'Failed to send email'" />
    <mvt:else>
        <mvt:eval expr="'Email sent'" />
    </mvt:if>

      Well, that's pretty damn handy...thanks. Worked just as well as the custom module function i pieced together from the original Send_Email_Attachment() function...still think a Send_Email_Attachment(...., l.message) would be great.

      Thanks.
