In my project I needed to send html-mails with attachments. I found a solution using phpmailer with method "mail" and some modifications in couch's functions.php and also in phpmailer.php. Also I modified it to include a plain text version as AltBody:
couchcms_phpmailer_attachment and alt-text.zip

With this you can send a mail with an attachment in couch as follows passing an editable of type 'file' as attachment parameter of send_mail tag:

Code: Select all
<cms:set attachment="<cms:php>echo str_replace('<cms:show k_site_link />', '../', '<cms:show attachment />');</cms:php>" scope='global' />
<cms:send_mail from='sender@example.com' to='receiver@example.com' html='1' subject='Your subject' attachment=attachment >
   <!doctype html>
   <html>
      <head>
         <meta charset="utf-8">
      </head>
      <body>
         Any HTML body here ...
      </body>
   </html>
</cms:send_mail>

It works wonderful in couch version v1.4.7.

@KK: It would be great if phpmailer and the attachment option would be included in a future release.

Another improvement could be of passing an array of files as follows: "file1.zip|file2.pdf|file3.png". If anybody modifies it to achieve this I would be glad.
