SMTP Email delete file C#

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have a ASP.Net website in which an email has to be sent to user with an excel attached if the user requests.

The user provides the email address, when click on a button to send report, an excel report with the result set should be attached to the email and sent to user.

The excel report will be saved on the server and through SMTP, I'm senidng the report in email. After the email is sent I should delete the excel file created on the server.When I'm trying to delete I get the error, the file is being used by SMTP object (other process).

Is there a way that I can delete this file after the email is sent? Please help me.

Sending a File Using Email Helper in WebPages/Razor


Note: This is particularly with respect to Email Helper in WebPages/Razor. Please don't post links using System.Net.Mail object.

Following this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/9-adding-email-to-your-website

Under "Sending a File Using Email" section what exactly is the code trying to do.

1: The SendFile.cshtml does not have any option to select file.

2: ProcessFile.cshtml is running fine. I am getting the email but no attachement.

I tried changing fileAttachment input to type="file" but not file is being sent to my email. I just get the message send in body.

Question: How exactly this file attachment works using Email Helper in WebPages.

Programmatically delete a .webpart file from wpcatalogs folder from an IIS website


We are using a third party wsp in our solution which directly adds the web parts into the web application store rather than the web part gallery(References to them are present in IIS site's wpcatalog directory). We want to remove these web part files so that the users will not be able to add these web parts to pages directly. Or any other modification so that users will not be able to add these directly. Is there a way we can do this programmatically?

How to delete an image file assigned to a PictureBox xontrol ?

In a Windows form application, some image files are assigned to PictureBox controls. I am trying to delete those image files. The first approach [1] with "Image.FromFile" gives an error message of "Another process is using this image file", although "Image.Dispose()" is executed. The second approach [2] using "Image.FromStream" results (X) images for PictureBoxes and Buttons, if "fs.Close()" is inclided. Without "fs.Close()", it gives the same error message of "Another process is using...". How can I display images properly and delete those images files ? Thanks [1] pictureBoxSelected.Image = Image.FromFile(@actualImage); . . . pictureBoxSelected.Image.Dispose(); pictureBoxSelected.Image = Image.FromFile(@tempImage);                                                if (System.IO.File.Exists(actualImage) == true) {     System.IO.File.Delete(actualImage); } [2] FileStream fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read); pictureBox.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(fs); fs.Close();

Log file WSS_AdminService.log - can i delete it?

Hi, I've noticed that the size of a file WSS_AdminService.log every user profile setting eg. in C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\Temp is about 2GB currently. I understand that this file is updated by wssadmin.exe (the Windows SharePoint Services Administration service). questions: 1. we have many users who are no longer using the account to login to the server, can i delete teh file then? 2. is there a way that i can allow only a single file WSS_AdminService.log in a specific user account to be access by wssadmin.exe? in this case we can save more HDD space. because, if we have more than 50 users account, then 50 * 2GB and it's already 100GB. instead of 100GB, can we just make it 2GB and this file is share by all the sharepoint users? thanks. Sam. Does anyone have any insight into how I might alter what is logged or how often, or even just to persuade it to 'housekeep' better, as the file continues to grow (reaching 750MB on the first server I noticed this on)? As far as I can see it is not related to the Diagnostic logging settings in Central Administration > Operations. Renaming the file to append a date on a regular basis is my current solution - a new copy is then created by WSS Admin on its next log cycle.

Configure Incoming Email in SharePoint 2010 with a remote (public) SMTP Server

I have a standalone SharePoint 2010 Installation on my local network. Have configured the SMTP Services and a SMTP domain called "internalcompany.com". Created a hosts file entry also for that - now outlook is able to send emails to this domain; it reaches the drop folder and from there SharePoint picks it up and pushes to the document libraries. So far so good. But obviously this is not what I want to do: my www.company.com is my public domain and mail server is mail.company.com - how do I get the local SMTP point to this address - so that if someone sends an email to shareddocs@company.com (just like any other normal id), it comes to my local server and then SharePoint. How do I do this? Remember, my server is standalone and my network is not domain based and does not have exchange.Karthick
