The email sends, but without the attachment.  Is there a problem with the code or does something need to be manipulated within the SQL Server settings?

msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail  @profile_name =  'Test' ,
@recipients = 'bill123453@yahoo.com',
@subject =  'Test' ,
@body =  'Test' ,
@query_attachment_filename =  'C:\Test.txt'

Database Mail uses the Microsoft Windows security context of the current
user to control access to files. Therefore, users who are authenticated with
SQL Server Authentication cannot attach files using @file_attachments.

Are you authenticated as a SQL user.
