I am currently taking the uploaded file and saving it to disk.  Then, I attach it to an email.  This works however, sometimes, (inconsistent) it claims the file is in use by another process and won't save it to disk.  I had the bright idea that I could attach the filestream directly to  the mailmessage.attachment.add. I have not been able to get this to work.  I actually succeeded but the file that was attached had nothing in it.  It had the right name though. The command I tried was:

mailmessage.attachments.add(new attachment(uploadname.postedfile.inputstream, uploadname.postedfile.filename))

Any ideas? I've found lots of stuff about how to save the file to disk and then attach that but I'm trying to get away from that.
