I created a variable call Targetfile, scope is package, data is string, value is myfilelocation
In Send Mail Task Editor, Attachments, I added @[users::Targetfile], in Expression  where it say name, I selected @[users::Targetfile]
It keeps saying "either the file @[users::Targetfile] does not exist or you don't have permission....???
Need help.

It looks like the account used by SSIS does not have permissions to the Folder where the file is being stored. check permissions on the Folder.. I would also suggest you to check the file path also,copy thee result of the expression as is and try to run/open it from RUN

Try changing...
@[users::Targetfile]

To
@[user::Targetfile]

should be singular

"It looks like the account used by SSIS does not have permissions to the Folder where the file is being stored."

I can run it fine when I don't use variable. I confirm the path and file name is correct. Is there another way to check this?
I run it under my logon.  I also changed to @[user::Targetfile]

You need to put your variable in the "expressions" section of the properties, not the "attachments" area.

Sorry - only put in "expressions" area.  When it validates, it's checking that attachments and doesn't know what to do.

So just remove your variable from the attachments property area.

Couldn't tell from the pic, but make sure you're setting the correct property within the expression.  Should be FileAttachments.

The Smtp Connection variable value should be written under Smtp connection property.. You do need to place any variable the Name property..If you have any variables under this property, delete it.. For configuration you will just need the Connection String property..Value property is not necessary.. Make sure that you  have placed your smtp variable (SMTP connection string properties.. under expressions)

Check your property within the expression of the send mail task.  Specifically check that you're setting the "SmtpConnection" property to your variable.
