For a long time I have used a contact form that I have created, which is very simple. Recently I had to create a form that also allows for an attachment. The form I created is based on:
- Scott Lucht’s phMailer
- Advanced email in PHP by Kevin Yank on Site Point
- PHP: Sending Email (Text/HTML/Attachments) on webcheatsheet.com
In any case, here is my version of the PHP email attachment form. Simple to implement in your web page. Allows one file to be attached to the email. Performs validation of: name, email, subject and message. Also validates certain file types and maximum size. No need for PHP knowledge. The script is well commented. Form is styled using CSS.

Form Installation Instructions:
- You need to include (or require) the fns.php at the top of your page. Basically copy/paste the top and bottom of the index.php to your page (whatever is within the php tags) and adjust the path/to/fns.php
- Copy/paste the code within the #uploadform div to where you want it to be on your page
- Change the email address in the fns.php. There are a few other variables you can adjust if you wish around the same place as the email variable
