The content type of the attachment, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) to let MailBee detect the content type automatically.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
true if the attachment was successfully added to the collection; otherwise, false.
MailBeeInvalidArgumentExceptionfilename is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or an empty string.
MailBeeIOExceptionAn error occurred and ThrowExceptions is true.
The targetFilename parameter allows the developer to override the filename under which the attachment will be added to the collection. This is useful when the developer wants to add the attachment from a temporary file such as ETQB4914.TMP under meaningful name such as report.doc.
Note Note
If you're attaching another e-mail message, be sure to use as None as mailEnc value. Some mail services cannot decode attached emails if they are Base64-encoded.
This sample creates a new message and adds an attachment to this message.
// To use the code below, import MailBee namespaces at the top of your code.
using MailBee;
using MailBee.Mime;

// The actual code (put it into a method of your class)

// Create a new MailMessage object.
MailMessage msg = new MailMessage();

// Add the attachment to the message.
msg.Attachments.Add(@"C:\Docs\mypic.gif", "my.gif", "<00s4a8m8918c$5664i1b1$iw671781@tlffmdqjobxj>", "image/gif", null, NewAttachmentOptions.None, MailTransferEncoding.Base64);
