in reply to Email Text File

Path should be the full path to the file (not just the directory). Filename is the 'recommended filename' that it gets attached as, and you can omit that.

Also, I'm pretty sure you can just do $report->send('sendmail');.

    I ended up saving it as an .xls file instead (since I needed to open it with that anyways) and changed the code to be
    $report->attach( Type=>'application/', Encoding=> 'base64', Path=> "/my/home/"."$out", Filename=> "$file"."_fixed.xls" );
    I feel like it may have been something with the encoding? I'm not sure :\
