Thank you for visiting the Q&A section on Magenaut. Please note that all the answers may not help you solve the issue immediately. So please treat them as advisements. If you found the post helpful (or not), leave a comment & I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Method 1

Did you check out MailMessage.Attachments property (see MSDN)?

// create attachment and set media Type
//      see
Attachment data = new Attachment(
// your path may look like Server.MapPath("~/file.ABC")

Method 2

create object of Attachment class with file name and add it into message’s Attachments property

  Attachment attachment = new Attachment("file.ext");

Method 3

public static bool SendMail(string strFrom, string strTo, string strSubject, string strMsg)
            // Create the mail message
            MailMessage objMailMsg = new MailMessage(strFrom, strTo);

            objMailMsg.BodyEncoding = Encoding.UTF8;
            objMailMsg.Subject = strSubject;
            objMailMsg.Body = strMsg;
            Attachment at = new Attachment(Server.MapPath("~/Uploaded/txt.doc"));
            objMailMsg.Priority = MailPriority.High;
            objMailMsg.IsBodyHtml = true;

            //prepare to send mail via SMTP transport
            SmtpClient objSMTPClient = new SmtpClient();
            objSMTPClient.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.PickupDirectoryFromIis;
            return true;                
        catch (Exception ex)
            throw ex;
