I am create a page in a website from when the site user can send and email.   I need to give the user the ability to browse their local machine and select a file to attach as part of the email.   Does anybody have any examples of who I can do this?    I tried the file upload control but can read the entire path of the selected fiile.

What do you mean that you can't read the entire path?  Is the path >260 characters?

I figured it out.

Me.FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName.ToString

Returns the entire local path of the selected file.
