Sending Email With an Attachment

This code demonstrates how to send an email in VB.NET with an attachment. It currently attaches the file "C:\" - in order to work, this file must obviously exist!

Dim oMsg As System.Web.Mail.MailMessage = New System.Web.Mail.MailMessage()

oMsg.From = ""
oMsg.To = ""
oMsg.Subject = "Email with Attachment Demo"
oMsg.Body = "This is the main body of the email"
Dim oAttch As MailAttachment = New MailAttachment("C:\")
