Just do it like this...

' your code
 Set JMail = Server.CreateObject("JMail.SMTPMail")
 JMail.ServerAddress = "xxx"
 JMail.Sender = email
 JMail.Subject = "Upload"
 JMail.AddRecipient ""
 JMail.AddAttachment Server.MapPath("/~Upload/" & FileName)
 JMail.Body = msg

' Call function
Call DeleteFile(Server.MapPath("/~Upload/" & FileName))

Function DeleteFile(strPathToFile)
   Dim objFSO
   Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

   If (objFSO.FileExists(strPathToFile)) = true Then
   End If

   Set objFSO - Nothing
   Set JMail = Nothing

End Function

Basically check if the file exists, if so delete it.  Just pass in the path and file name to the function.

Good Luck...
