ASP.NET email with multiple attachments

A simple web form that lets the user upload multiple attachments to create and send email.


This application demonstrates the use of some simple but useful things you can do with ASP.NET; uploading, saving and deleting files, and sending email.

There are three things we need to do to be able to run this code and I’m going to assume that you will be trying out this code at home on a Windows desktop computer.

First, you need to create a virtual directory in IIS to host this web application and set write permission because we will be saving and deleting files that will be email attachments. In the virtual directory, create a folder called “attachments“. This is where we will temporarily store the uploaded files to attach to the email.

The second thing to do is to make sure that the SMTP server is running and that it can relay mail. From the IIS MMC window, with “local computer” selected on the left, you should see the “Default SMTP Virtual Server“, if not you need to install it. Right-click it, go into “Properties”, the “Access” tab, and click the “Relay” button. With the “only the list below” radio button selected, you should see the local IP address:, if it’s not there, you need to add it.

The last thing is to set up the SMTP server in the application. In the code, look for this line (line # 149):

SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "localhost";

You need to replace “localhost” with the name or IP address of your SMTP mail server. On a Windows desktop computer, “localhost” is the default value and usually works.

Using the code

First of all, we create a new MailMessage object and we call it “email“. Then we set the FromToSubjectand Body properties as well as the BodyFormatof of this object to the values on our web form.

// Create a new blank MailMessage

 MailMessage email = new MailMessage ();

// Set the properties of the MailMessage to the

// values on the form

 if (rblMailFormat.SelectedItem.Text == "text")
  email.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Text;
  email.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Html;
 email.From = txtSender.Text;
 email.To = txtReceiver.Text;
 email.Subject = txtSubject.Text;
 email.Body = txtBody.Text;

Now for the meat and potatoes of this little web application; the following block of code checks the first of threeOpen File Dialogs of our web form (the Open File Dialog is an HTML File Field control to which we’ve added therunat="server" property). If there is a value, the file is uploaded, saved on the server, and added as an attachment to the email. The processing of the two other Open File Dialogs are just the same.

// Beginning of attachments processing

// Check the first open file dialog for a value

 if (ofdAttachment1.PostedFile != null)
  // Get a reference to PostedFile object

  HttpPostedFile ulFile = ofdAttachment1.PostedFile;
  // Get size of the file

  int nFileLen = ulFile.ContentLength; 
  // Make sure the size of the file is > 0

  if( nFileLen > 0 )
   // Get the file name

   strFileName = Path.GetFileName(ofdAttachment1.PostedFile.FileName);
   // Preced the file name with "attachments/" so 

   // the file is saved to our attachments directory

   strFileName = "attachments/" + strFileName;
   // Save the file on the server

   // Create the email attachment with the uploaded file

   MailAttachment attach = new MailAttachment(Server.MapPath(strFileName));
   // Attach the newly created email attachment

   // Store filename so we can delete it later

   attach1 = strFileName;

Then we send the email and finish by deleting the attachments.

// Set the SMTP server and send the email

 SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "localhost";
 SmtpMail.Send (email);

// Delete the attachements if any

 if (attach1 != null)

Points of Interest

This little project shows a practical use of the System.Web.HttpPostedFile and theSystem.Web.Mail.SmtpMail objects. The HttpPostedFile object is probably the simplest way to let a web user upload a file. I also tried to create the file attachment using a FileStream, hoping that I would be able to create the attachment without having to first save the file. I haven’t figured that one out yet.
