I want to modify this VBS script so that it sends an attachment:

The attachment can be found at C:\Attachment\attachment.pdf


MailTo = "email@email.com"
From = "email@email.com"
Subject = "This is a test"
Body = "VBSCript email"
Username = "user"
Password = "password"
Email MailTo, From, Subject, Body, Username, Password
Sub Email (MailTo, From, Subject, Body, Username, Password)
 Set objMessage = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
 With objMessage
  .Subject = Subject
  .From = From
  .To = MailTo
  .TextBody = Body
 End With
 With objMessage.Configuration.Fields
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "server"
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = "user"
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = "password"
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpusessl") = True
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60
      .Update
 End With
 objMessage.Send
End Sub

Use the AddAttachment method (see line 27):
MailTo = "email@email.com"
From = "email@email.com"
Subject = "This is a test"
Body = "VBSCript email"
Username = "user"
Password = "password"
Email MailTo, From, Subject, Body, Username, Password
Sub Email (MailTo, From, Subject, Body, Username, Password)
 Set objMessage = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
 With objMessage
  .Subject = Subject
  .From = From
  .To = MailTo
  .TextBody = Body
 End With
 With objMessage.Configuration.Fields
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "server"
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = "user"
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = "password"
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpusessl") = True
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60
      .Update
 End With
 objMessage.AddAttachment "C:\Attachment\attachment.pdf"
 objMessage.Send
End Sub

Thanks.  How do I modify this script to send to multiple email addresses, say email1@email.com, email2@email.com, email3@email.com?
Also, if I want to send any file which is found at C:\Attachment\, whether it's a pdf or txt etc.. how can I modify the script to send any file which is found in the Attachment folder?

Lastly, I would like to see a revised script which also asks the user running the script to add a date to the subject line.  
For instance if I specify the subject to be 'Latest Report', when I run the script I want a prompt to appear so that the user type in a date, say 'November 13' and then the script will concatenate the Subject as following:  Latest Report November 13.

I would like to modify the script so that in the Subject Line it shows yesterday's date:
It should concatenate with yesterday's date .. ie   "This is the subject line: should automatically enter yesterday's date here"

Try this, change this line:

.Subject = Subject

to

.Subject = Subject & " " & FormatDateTime(DateAdd("d", -1, Date), vbShortDate)
