I get an error when the email is sent if the attachment exists.

A hash table can only be added to another hash table.
At C:\Users\chd\Desktop\email256v2.ps1:251 char:17

below the part of code where the error is I think.

    From = $EmailSender
    To = $EmailRecipient
    Subject = "Backup/Restore and Longfiles Report for: $env:username"
    SMTPServer = $EmailRelay
