Email attachments - even after dispose no release?

in C# I have 6 attachments for emails going out.. 3 are built in crystal 3 are static handouts..
With both types after the run the pdf's can SOMETIMES not be able to be deleted or moved because someone has it open.. I made sure Crystal is closing & disposing at it's end, but I am sure it is the Attachment due to the fact the 3 static PDF's can also get locked.. After 15/30 minutes the resources unlock.. so sounds like a dispose problem.. But.. I dispose on the finally process of a try so if it aborts, it still should dispose.

Below is the code, attempting to abbrevate where not really part of attachment logic.




using System.Net.Mail;
:
:
    Attachment attachmentmsg1;
    Attachment attachmentmsg2;
    Attachment attachmentmsg3;
    Attachment attachmentmsg4;
    Attachment attachmentmsg5;
    Attachment attachmentmsg6;

:
        try
        {
            mMailMessage = new MailMessage();
            // Set the sender address of the mail message
            mMailMessage.From = new MailAddress("someone@comcast.net");

:
:
                SetAttachments();
                PrintBody();
:
:
                mMailMessage.Body = fullBody;

:               // Instantiate a new instance of SmtpClient
                SmtpClient mSmtpClient = new SmtpClient("smtp.comcast.net");
                // Send the mail message
                mSmtpClient.Send(mMailMessage);
                mSmtpClient = null;
            }

        }
        catch (Exception)

            throw;
