I am trying to add some attachments to an email that is being sent using the mandrill api via a php wrapper. I have tried a number of different things to try to successfully attach the file but to no avail. I am using cakephp 2. This shows that an attachment has been added to the email and is a pdf but the actual pdf has not been attached. I also tried by adding the path directly onto the file as in:.
I have googled and read every article I can find but cannot find any specific reference as to how I should specify the path for mandrill to correctly attach my attachment.
It looks like you're passing a parameter called path , but the Mandrill API doesn't take the path of a file for attachments. If you're using the send or send-template call, attachments should be an associative array hash with three keys: type, name, and content. The content parameter should be the contents of the file as a Base64 encoded string, so instead of path, you'll want to get the file contents, Base64 encode them, and then pass them in a parameter called content instead of path.

I mean how can you ask a question about a class Mandrill that no-one has ever seen so far? You want to give it a shot? I was actually hoping to get an answer from the guys at mandrill. I have edited the question again with a link to the php wrapper: bitbucket. Active Oldest Votes. Kaitlin Kaitlin 5, 28 28 silver badges 29 29 bronze badges. Thanks Kaitlin.
Sorry for my ignorance. I am not familiar with using Mandrill and I have not base64 encoded anything or for that matter attached files to emails before. So far I am very impressed with Mandrill and appreciate your quick feedback! Yeah, thanks for jumping into stackoverflow with us : This is super helpful. Thanks again Kaitlin!
Hi Manu , what about decoding it? How do I save the decoded base64? I don't know what you are trying to achieve but this thread is about how to attach and send files using the mandrill api. When you receive the file you do not need to do anything to the file. It is available to download like any email attachment. You mean Mandrill will provide a link for us to download it? You get the attachment in your email like any attachment.
