I have the following method that uses Java Mail to send an e-mail. How do I put an attachment in the e-mail?

public static void sendEmail(String recipient, String subject, String body, String sender, String organisation, String attachment) {
  Properties props = new Properties();
  props.put("", "");
  props.put("mail.smtp.connectiontimeout", "45000");
  props.put("mail.smtp.timeout", "44550");
  Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
  try {
    MimeMessage msg = new MimeMessage(session);
    msg.setHeader("Content-Type", "text/plain");
    msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(sender));
    msg.setRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, new InternetAddress(recipient));
    msg.setSentDate(new Date());
  } catch (Exception exception) {
