Hi,
Multipart multipart = new MimeMultipart();
MimeBodyPart messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();

messageBodyPart.setText(message);
multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);

//attachment...
messageBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();

String fileAttachment = "D:\\timer.txt";
DataSource source = new FileDataSource(fileAttachment);
messageBodyPart.setDataHandler( new DataHandler(source));
messageBodyPart.setFileName("a1.txt");
multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart);

//second attachment
MimeBodyPart messageBodyPart2 = new MimeBodyPart();
DataSource source2 = new FileDataSource("D:\\searchQuery.txt");
messageBodyPart2.setDataHandler( new DataHandler(source2));
messageBodyPart2.setFileName("a2.txt");
multipart.addBodyPart(messageBodyPart2);
. . .

msg.setContent(multipart);

Hope this is helpful:)

Cheers
