I updated my code a bit.

If I do the following, I get only the attachment without the HTML body (html body part is commented)


the following gives me HTML body wihtout attachment



I need both. HTML body as well as an attachment.

Can someone please let me know how to solve this problem.

Thank you

In your first example, you add all attachments, but then you overwrite them with the body.

You must use a MimeMultiPart, and create one body part for the HTML and one for each attachment. The file body part will work just as the one you have now; the HTML body part will be similar to how you set the HTML contents for your message.
