When using System.Web.Mail you can only attach files that reside on the local server. If you have an interface similar to Gmail, Yahoo, etc when the user clicks the "Attach" button this should be a FileUpload control where they can select files from their local machine.

When the user presses 'Send' the file should be uploaded to the server, attached to the email, the email should be sent, and the file that was uploaded should be deleted.

I would like to add that the control to browse files from local machine can be used from HTML as below:

<input type="file" runat="server" id="flUpload">
