Introduction

In this article I will explain how to send mail with multiple attachments in asp.net.

Description:

In previous post I explained how to send mail with attachment in asp.net. Now I will explain how to send mail with multiple attachments in asp.net. During work with one of the application I got requirement like send mail with multiple attachments in asp.net actually we can implement this concept very easily just by adding few lines of code to how to send mail with attachment in asp.net.

If we want to add multiple attachments to mail we need to write code as shown below

MailMessage Msg = new MailMessage();
Msg.From = txtFrom.Text;
Msg.To = txtTo.Text;
Msg.Subject = txtSubject.Text;
//Attaching files to email
Msg.Attachments.Add(mailAttachment);
Msg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment(fileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName));
Msg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment(fileUpload2.PostedFile.FileName));
Msg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment(fileUpload3.PostedFile.FileName));
Msg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment(fileUpload4.PostedFile.FileName));
Msg.Body = txtBody.Text;
// your remote SMTP server IP.
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "10.120.0.21";
SmtpMail.Send(Msg);
For example check below code


<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
<title>Send Mail with multiple attachements using asp.net</title>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<table style=" border:1px solid" align="center">
<tr>
<td colspan="2" align="center">
<b>Send Mail with multiple Attachments using asp.net</b>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
Attach a file:
</td>
<td>
<asp:FileUpload ID="fileUpload1" runat="server" /><br />
<asp:FileUpload ID="fileUpload2" runat="server" /><br />
<asp:FileUpload ID="fileUpload3" runat="server" /><br />
<asp:FileUpload ID="fileUpload4" runat="server" /><br />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
</td>
<td>
<asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" Text="Send" runat="server" onclick="btnSubmit_Click" />
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
</form>
</body>
</html>
After completion of aspx page add following namespaces in codebehind
C# Code


using System;
using System.Net.Mail;
using System.Web.Mail;
using MailMessage = System.Web.Mail.MailMessage;
After that add following code in code behind

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
}
protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
MailMessage Msg = new MailMessage();
// Sender e-mail address.
Msg.From = "administrator@aspdotnet-suresh.com";
// Recipient e-mail address.
Msg.To = "suresh@aspdotnet-suresh.com";
// Subject of e-mail
Msg.Subject = "Multiple Attachment File";
Msg.Body = "Send Mail with multiple attachements in asp.net";
Msg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment(fileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName));
Msg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment(fileUpload2.PostedFile.FileName));
Msg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment(fileUpload3.PostedFile.FileName));
Msg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment(fileUpload4.PostedFile.FileName));
// your remote SMTP server IP.
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "10.120.0.21";
SmtpMail.Send(Msg);
}
VB.NET Code

Imports System.Net.Mail
Imports System.Web.Mail

Partial Class Default
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
End Sub
Protected Sub btnSubmit_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
Dim Msg As New MailMessage()
' Sender e-mail address.
Msg.From = "administrator@aspdotnet-suresh.com"
' Recipient e-mail address.
Msg.[To] = "suresh@aspdotnet-suresh.com"
' Subject of e-mail
Msg.Subject = "Multiple Attachment File"
Msg.Body = "Send Mail with multiple attachements in asp.net"
Msg.Attachments.Add(New Attachment(fileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName))
Msg.Attachments.Add(New Attachment(fileUpload2.PostedFile.FileName))
Msg.Attachments.Add(New Attachment(fileUpload3.PostedFile.FileName))
Msg.Attachments.Add(New Attachment(fileUpload4.PostedFile.FileName))
' your remote SMTP server IP.
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "10.120.0.21"
SmtpMail.Send(Msg)
End Sub
End Class

Please give me the solution for following error, I am facing this problem while running above mail sendin code:::

The Error is---

Unable to cast object of type 'System.Net.Mail.Attachment' to type 'System.Web.Mail.MailAttachment'.

Suresh Dasari said...

that problem because of missing using System.Web.Mail; namespace in your code. Please check it once....

Anonymous said...

Anonymous said...

using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

using System.Net.Mail;
using System.Web.Mail;

Anonymous said...

Hi..this is very helpful coding for me..
but i have exception when i am running this code like

---Unable to cast object of type 'System.Net.Mail.Attachment' to type 'System.Web.Mail.MailAttachment'.

Anonymous said...

Will you plz help me to solve this exception???

Don said...

hello,

instead of using

Msg.Attachments.Add(New Attachment(fileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName));

use

Msg.Attachments.Add(new System.Web.Mail.MailAttachment(fileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName));

for all the 4 attachments

hope this will help you.

Anonymous said...

Thanx but i had also tried this code also,it still gives the error

Anonymous said...

Now the error comes in following statements:

SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "72.167.238.201";
SmtpMail.Send(Msg);


Exception is:
The specified protocol is unknown.

Have you a solution for this problem??

DON said...

This Exception might be shown because of adding attachment incorrectly..

check the following url for information about this error

http://www.systemwebmail.com/faq/4.3.7.aspx


Instead of directly sending file as attachment try to save to server. and after sending email delete the file..

for e.g.

add System.IO; namespace at the top.


if (fileUpload1.PostedFile != null)
{
HttpPostedFile attFile = fileUpload1.PostedFile;
int attachFileLength = attFile.ContentLength;
if (attachFileLength > 0)
{

string strFileName = Path.GetFileName(fileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName);
fileUpload1.PostedFile.SaveAs(Server.MapPath(strFileName));
message.Attachments.Add(new System.Web.Mail.MailAttachment(Server.MapPath(strFileName)));
attach1 = strFileName;
}
}

after the email is sent delete the file

if (attach1 != null)
File.Delete(Server.MapPath(attach1));
