Hello,

Using a Web form I have a field that allows a user to attach a file and upon submit an email is generated and the file is attached to that email.  But I am receiving an error - The Path parameter for the MapPath method must be a virtual path. A physical path was used.

Here is my code:

<%
  Dim Name
  Dim EMail
  Dim Phone

  Name = Request.Form("txtfName")
  EMail = Request.Form("txtemail")
  Phone = Request.Form("txtPhone")
  file = Request.Form("fResume")

  Set Mailer = Server.CreateObject("SMTPsvg.Mailer")
  Mailer.FromName   = Name
  Mailer.FromAddress = Email
  Mailer.RemoteHost = "mail.website.com"
  Mailer.AddRecipient "info@website.com", "info@website.com"
  Mailer.Subject = "Submitted file"
  Mailer.AddAttachment (Server.MapPath(file))
  Mailer.ContentType = "text/html"
  Mailer.BodyText = "<html><body>Hello You, <br>" & Name & " is interested in the following:  Attached is their document<BR></body></html>"

  strMsgFooter = vbCrLf & "End Of Information Sent"
  Mailer.BodyText = strMsgHeader & strMsgInfo & strMsgFooter


  if Mailer.SendMail then
      Response.Write ""
  else
      Response.Write "<FONT COLOR='red'>Mail send failure. Error was</FONT> " & Mailer.Response
  end if

I don't think that will work. In order for ASPeMail to send the attachment, it has to exist on the server, not the client. Sio, what you have to do is to upload the attachment to the server first and then send the attachment.

You will need to have some sort of upload component or to use a pure code (i.e., no component) solution. Here are a few to get you started:

components:

code only:
