Download: Chilkat .NET Assemblies

This VB.NET example program shows how to create and send an email with a file attachment (a GIF image file attachment).


        ' Create a mailman object for sending email.
        Dim mailman As New Chilkat.MailMan()

        ' Any string passed to UnlockComponent automatically begins a 30-day trial.
        Dim success As Boolean
        success = mailman.UnlockComponent("Hello World")
        If (success <> true) Then
            MsgBox(mailman.LastErrorText)
            Exit Sub
        End If


        ' Set the SMTP server host.
        mailman.SmtpHost = "smtp.earthlink.net"

        ' Create a simple email with a file attachment.
        Dim email As New Chilkat.Email()

        ' This email will have both a plain-text body and an HTML body.
        email.Body = "This is the plain-text alternative"
        email.AddHtmlAlternativeBody("<html><body><b><font color='red' size='+1'>This is bold red text.</font></b></html>")
        email.Subject = "This email has a file attachment."
        email.AddTo("Chilkat Support", "support@chilkatsoft.com")
        email.From = "Hello World <hello@chilkatsoft.com>"

        ' Add a file attachment.
        Dim contentType As String
        ' Returns the content-type of the attachment (determined by the file extension)
        ' This return value is for informational purposes only.
        contentType = email.AddFileAttachment("dude.gif")
        If contentType Is Nothing Then
            MessageBox.Show(email.LastErrorText)
            Return
        End If

        ' If you're curious, show the MIME text of the email to be sent..
        MessageBox.Show(email.GetMime())

        ' Send email.
        success = mailman.SendEmail(email)
        If success Then
            MessageBox.Show("Sent mail with attachment!")
        Else
            MessageBox.Show(mailman.LastErrorText)
        End If
