How do I attach a file with a very unfriendly name (like a file with a session Id number in it) but have it attached as another name?
The file name in question has the session ID in it to avoid clashes name on the web server but when I attach it to the file, a friendlier name is preferable.Is there a way to attach the file with the unfriendly name as another name so that when the user gets the email he can tell from the name what the content of the file is? I'd hate to have to create a unique folder just to put a non unique file name in it for the purpose of simply attaching it to an email.
Dim mailMessage As System.Net.Mail.MailMessage = New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage()
Email is working when form is submitted, but the attachment is not being sent with it.. what im i doing wrong with the logic below: Also, would it be possible to add an attachment without uploading it to the server first?
Im sending a mail using cdo object. Im hosting the site. Now i want to attach a file which is in the folder adc on the server. Im getting the path of the file from the database eg. abc est.txt. I have written the code for the same but the file is not getting attached properly. If I hardcode the path and test it in visual studio then its working fine.
Im generating a PDF file. Normally I send this to the user using a .ashx file, where the user can directly download it from his browser (see that code below).
Protected Function getfile() As MemoryStream Dim stream As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream If document.PageCount > 0 Then document.Save(stream, False) 'Context.Response.Clear() 'Context.Response.ContentType = "application/pdf" 'Context.Response.AddHeader("Content-disposition", "attachment;filename=TicketEZ_tickets_" + eventname + ".pdf") 'Context.Response.AddHeader("content-length", stream.Length.ToString) 'Context.Response.BinaryWrite(stream.ToArray) 'Context.Response.Flush() Return stream stream.Close() 'Context.Response.End() End If
But now I want to send this file as an email attachment...how can I do that? I tried this, but that doesnt work...(Value of type 'System.IO.MemoryStream' cannot be converted to 'String')
Dim att As New System.Net.Mail.Attachment(getfile) Msg.Attachments.Add(att)
I have created several applications now allowing the user to export to excel, word, pdf, etc. But this one is a little different, the client wants to have functionality that would directly export to excel as an attachment in an email. Basically my question is, can I create the excel file without storing it to server prior to attaching and sending out the email? Or do I have to save a copy on the server before I can attach it?
I'm trying to attach a memorystream as an attachment to an email, however the file is always empty. I'm using a streamwriter to write the text in to the memorystream, I then flush the streamwriter and I can see the memorystream has data. However when I attach the memorystream to the email the file is always empty. I can't see what I'm doing wrong. The code is:

I know how to send an email. But now I want to send an email with an attachment. I also want to allow the user to browse for and then select the attachment. I cannot seem to find any info on this. All the articles I find show how to attach a file where you know the path and file name. I want the user to browse their drive, select a file, and then send an email with this attachment.
I currently have a page which displays a report of multiple tables with the data values in them based on two parameters selected in dropdowns.
Now, I need to generate the same report for each combination of the two parameters as a worksheet in an Excel workbook to be sent as an email attachment. This is to be automatically generated daily, and I'm using the Global.asax to do this task at 1 day intervals. So each sheet will display multiple tables, one below the next, just like they display on the web page where the user can go to view them on demand.
I've seen plenty of resources for exporting a gridview to Excel, where a user clicks and is prompted to download an Excel file, but this is different.
Is there a way to send the same email to multiple recipients but also send with an attachment to only 1 of them?eg. I have a form that gets filled out, the user gets a copy of the form with an attachment (file sits on server). The site owner also wants the email (through bcc) but without the attachment.
I am working on document storage and retrieval application. In which i display the pdf document as an png image , but i have a email button on the top. On clicking that the user would be able to provide an email address to which the document needs to be sent, and I need to send this pdf as an attachment. I need to password protect the file for security reasons. I have no clue on how i can do this in asp.net mvc.
I have completed sending attachment/pdf with email.
I have to send password protected attachment/pdf while sending email so that reciepeint should be asked to enter password while opening attachment/pdf and he will open attachment/pdf only after entering password.
