I know how to send email with attachments (where the attachment are based on phisical files)
I have a byte array that represents a file and I want to send it as attachment.
Can you show me how to do it without creating a temporary file?

Can't you use a ByteArrayDataSource instead of FileDataSource, to wrap your attachment?
