Trying to script powershell to send an email with an attachment. I have tired all sorts of items with no luck.  Any ideas on how to add an attachment? I have it sending an email with the script below:

$mail = New-Object System.Net.Mail.MailMessage

$mail.From = "emailaddress“;

$mail.To.Add("emailaddress");

$mail.Subject = "test";

$mail.Body = "test";

$smtp = New-Object System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("192.168.xxx.xxx");

#*$smtp.Credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential("userid", "password");

$smtp.Send($mail);


Thanks in Advance

Add these three lines to your code. You could also try using the send-mailmessage cmdlet in V2. it is a lot easier to use. Also look at this question I was helping with for other examples.

$emailattachment = "C:\mailatt.txt"
$attachment = New-Object System.Net.Mail.Attachment($emailattachment, 'text/plain')  
$mail.Attachments.Add($attachment)
