My page continues to error out (Error 324 - Chrome) when attempting to send e-mails with attachments using PHP's PEAR Mail extension. Although the page error's out - I do receive one of the approximately 800 e-mails. Here's what I'm working with:

function email_statements($type) {
switch($type) {
    // Determine the type of statement to be e-mailed
    case 'monthly':
        // Array holding all unique AP e-mail addresses
        $ap_email_addresses = array();
        // Grab the unique AP e-mail address set to receive statements
        $stmt = $mysqli->prepare("SELECT email FROM statements GROUP BY email ORDER BY email ASC");
        // Add unique e-mail address to AP E-mail Addresses array
        while($row = $stmt->fetch()) $ap_email_addresses[] = $ap_email_address;
        // Verify we grabbed the e-mail addresses
        if(count($ap_email_addresses) == 0) {
            // Exit and return error code if unable to grab e-mail addresses
            $return_message = 1;
        // E-mail addresses grabbed - proceed
        else {
            // PDF formatted date
            $formatted_date = date('m_d_Y');
            // Now we have the unique e-mail addresses - associate those with the account numbers
            foreach($ap_email_addresses as $email_address) {
                $file_names = array();
                $stmt = $mysqli->prepare("SELECT customer_number FROM statements WHERE email = ?");
                $stmt->bind_param("s", $email_address);
                // Constructs the name of the statement (PDF) file to be sent
                while($output = $stmt->fetch()) $file_names[] = $ap_account_number . '_' . $formatted_date . '.pdf';
                // Send e-mails
                // Include SMTP authentication parameters
                // Set the e-mail recipients
                $recipients = 'example@example.com';
                // Set the e-mail subject
                $subject = 'Monthly Account Statement';
                // Create the e-mail body
                $html = 
                        <p>Test E-mail</p>
                // Construct the message headers
                $headers = array(
                    'From'          => $from,
                    'Subject'       => $subject,
                    'Content-Type'  => 'text/html; charset=UTF-8',
                    'MIME-Version'  => '1.0'
                $mimeparams = array();
                $mimeparams['text_encoding'] = '8bit';
                $mimeparams['text_charset'] = 'UTF-8'; 
                $mimeparams['html_charset'] = 'UTF-8'; 
                $mimeparams['head_charset'] = 'UTF-8';
                // Create a new instance
                $mime = new Mail_mime();
                // Specify the e-mail body
                // Attach the statements (PDF)
                foreach($file_names as $attached_file) {
                    $file = '../path/to/the/pdf/file/' . $attached_file;
                    $file_name = $attached_file;
                    $content_type = "Application/pdf";
                    $mime->addAttachment ($file, $content_type, $file_name, 1);
                // Create the body
                $body = $mime->get($mimeparams);
                // Add the headers
                $headers = $mime->headers($headers);
                // Create SMTP connect array to be passed
                $smtp = Mail::factory('smtp', array ('host' => $host, 'port' => $port, 'auth' => true, 'username' => $username, 'password' => $password));
                // Send the message
                $mail = $smtp->send($recipients, $headers, $body);
                if(PEAR::isError($mail)) echo 'Error';
                else echo 'Sent';
                // Close this account and cycle through the rest


Now I thought maybe I wasn't giving the script enough time to execute - so I set it ridiculously high set_time_limit(99999999) to ensure it had plenty of time, although it normally times out within 10-15 seconds. So basically it works like this, I have an internal DB that stores customer account numbers and e-mail addresses. Accounts can have the same e-mail address (It's sent to their company's AP department) - aka one e-mail address receives statements for multiple branches. From their each statement is already constructed with the format being ACCOUNTNUMBER_MM_DD_YYYY.pdf.

So I'm simply trying to have a short message in the body, and attach the monthly statements. Again, not sure why it's failing, and even though the script halts, I do receive ONE of the e-mails (I'm sending them all to myself at the moment just to test). Can anyone see where I may have an issue?

    I discovered the issue. As of PHP 5.0+ you cannot have multiple instances of the same include file - aka Mail.php was included as it looped. Once it was moved outside of the loop, the issue was resolved.
