I've created a webform that creates a document. I'm trying to add the document to an email that my users can then review and send on to whomever. Can anyone assist in how to create the email document please?

Thanks in advance,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

this is from a working app.
            //create output file
            dynamic oApp = null;
            dynamic oMsg = null;

            dynamic oAttach = null;
            int olMailItem = 0;
            //int olFormatPlain = 1;
            int olFormatHTML = 2;
            int olAttByValue = 1;
            oApp = Activator.CreateInstance(Type.GetTypeFromProgID("Outlook.Application"));

            //Outlook.Application oApp = new Outlook.Application();
            // Outlook.MailItem oMsg = null;
            //Outlook.UserProperty olProjId = null;
            //Outlook.UserProperties props;

            string ID_Title = ""; string bodyTop = ""; string bodyMain = ""; string bodyBundle = "";
            string bodyFooter = "";
                //oMsg = oApp.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olMailItem) as Outlook.MailItem;
                oMsg = oApp.CreateItem(olMailItem);

                oMsg.Subject = "file download link";
                oMsg.BodyFormat = olFormatHTML;
                oMsg.Body = "file send";
                oMsg.HTMLBody = "<br>";
                bodyTop = "<p style='color:darkblue'><br> The following files are too large to email so please follow the links to download from our server<br />";

                int pos = (int)oMsg.Body.Length + 1;
                oAttach = oMsg.Attachments.Add(fi.FullName, olAttByValue, pos, "Transmittal");

                bodyMain += "</ul>";
                bodyMain += "<hr>";

                oMsg.HTMLBody += "";
