Hi,

I have a program here, in which I want to zip the CSX file and the tiff images together contained in the data directory and email them to an email address (which will be taken from the database) using MS-outlook.

How can I do this?

Please help.

Thanks.

I know of a third party DLL that will allow you to zip up files.  Its called ICSharpCode.Zlib.  With that, it will give what you need inorder to zip up any file.

You can you use to send the file through the email.

Dim msg As New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage("from email address", "to email address", "file name", "a message you want to include in the email")
Dim mailClient As New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("host name")
mailClient.Send(msg)
msg.Dispose()
