i create a V# .Net 2 programm and will give my users the possibility to send a mail over the local installed mail client.
The mail must contain an attachment.
I think, i can use the SmtpClient class.
How can i do this?

Hi ehornburg,

>>to send a mail over the local installed mail client.
>>The mail must contain an attachment

You cannot use the local installed mail client when attachments are required. For example, OExpress cannot be used this way. Outlook can but with a warning to the user.

You better use the builtin classes of .Net: http://www.systemnetmail.com/
