Hello jeet1,
Inorder to send an attachement using the SMTP.
Here is the step.

1)After the "DATA" command is written out, u will need to send out the information of the MIME version . Like "MIME-Version: 1.0"

2) Then define the content type and the boundary for the data to be send as
"Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=\"" + strboundary +"\"")"    where strboundary is some temporary string set as "abcdef"

3) End the header information and start ur information as
"\r\n--" + boundary"

4) Then start ur body part which is in text as
"Content-Type: text/plain; charset=\"us-ascii\"\r\n""

followed by the data in the body part.

"This is great\r\n\r\n"

end the body with the bounbary that u have defined
""\r\n--" +  strboundary"

5) Now the specifyfor the attachement as

""Content-Type:image/gif; name="+FileName" where FileName is the name of the attachement which the recipient will see as. Content type will be dependend on what u want to send it. It it is binary encode it.

6) U will then specify that u want as attachement else it will show up as part of the message.

"Content-Disposition: attachment;filename=\""+FileName+"\""""

7) U will specify the type of encoding as
"Content-transfer-encoding: base64\r\n"  

8)Then u will write the encode as
"QORIUEQRUQUREQOQUQU" etc

9) And incidate that u have ended the file as
""\r\n--" + strboundary"

10) Then specify the overall end of the message as
""\r\n\r\n--" + strboundary + "--\r\n""

11) Then specify the end of it by
"."

12) Then close it using
"QUIT"

Hope this answers ur quesiton.
