|The system cannot find the path specified error |
When sending a message with AspEmail, the following error may be generated:
The system cannot find the path specified.
This error means the path to a file attachment or embedded image
specified via AddAttachment or AddEmbeddedImage cannot be found.
Make sure the path you are specifying exists on the server where AspEmail runs.
- Client-side file paths are used. Some developers erroneously assume that AspEmail running on a web server can
attach a file located on a user's machine. For AspEmail to attach a client file, the
file must first be uploaded to the server where AspEmail is running. You may use
the AspUpload component to
capture files uploaded with a browser.
- An empty argument is passed as a file path. If a message needs to be sent WITHOUT an attachment, some developers
still call the method AddAttachment with an empty argument, as follows:
AddAddress must not be called at all if you do not need to send an attachment.
- Mapped drives are used. If a file to be attached is located
on a mapped drive, you may not always use the mapped drive's letter
in your path, as AspEmail may not run in the context of a user account
for which the mapping is made.
If a remote file needs to be attached, use UNC paths, such as:
