JMail Issue

Hello,

I have a form, which accepts a file through an a browse option (<input type="file" name="planattachment">) and when the form is submitted, I want that file to be sent as an attachment using JMail.

Here's the code I have at the moment:

-----------------------------------------------------------
'Dimension variables
Dim objJMail 'Holds the JMail Object

'Create the e-mail server object
Set objJMail = Server.CreateObject("JMail.Message")

'Senders email address
objJMail.From = bill@mail.com

'Senders name
objJMail.FromName = "Referral"

'Who the email is sent to
objJMail.AddRecipient joe@mail.com

'Set the subject of the e-mail
objJMail.Subject = "Client Referral from Bill"

objJMail.HTMLBody = "blah"

'Importance of the e-mail (5=Low, 3=Normal, 1=High)
objJMail.Priority = 3

objJMail.AddAttachment(Request.Form("attachment"))

'Send the e-mail
objJMail.Send("smtp.mailserver.com")

'Close the server object
Set objJMail = Nothing
--------------------------------------------------------------

I have this strange feeling in the back of my mind that I need to upload the file first, before I am able to send if off as an attachment.  But I remember reading somewhere that it was possible without storing the file on the server......

The error that occurs is like "could not open file <filepath&name>"

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance.

I already have the addattachment code in there (objJMail.AddAttachment(Request.Form("attachment"))) and I've been able to send attachments before.  But in the past, I have never needed to get the attachment from the person.  

Before, I always had the attachment on the server, so sending it was fine.  This time, however, the form which preceeds the JMail code gives the user an option to select a file which they want to put as an attachment on the email (<input type="file" name="planattachment">).  When the form is submitted, I can get the full path of that file (which is on their local machines) from the form (Request.Form("attachment")).

I finally managed to work something out, which meets my needs (but stilll not sure if its possible to send an attachment directly from the users local machine).

Using code which I found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnasdj01/html/asp0900.asp I managed to upload the users file to the server, from which I pointed the attachment to that file and then deleted the file off the server.
