Multipart mp = new MimeMultipart();
//set email address(es)
//set message, if any
// create a message part
MimeBodyPart mbp = new MimeBodyPart();

// attach the file to the message part
FileDataSource fds = new FileDataSource(<full path to file> );
mbp.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds));

// add this part to Multipart
//more attachements, if any
//send it off using Transport

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
