Cannot delete Text File??

  • 13 years ago


     I need to delete a text file after i have emailed it as an attachment. I am using SMPT emails, and attach the textfile to the email.

    But when i try to delete it after the email has been sent, i get an error saying that the file is still in use by another process. Now i am guessing that beacause i added the file to the email as an attachment, its probably still opened in memory somewhere? Am i right? And how do i unload it from memory so that i can delete it.

    Thanks in advance
