I am attaching a text file to a .Mail object. The text file is being created using a CreateTextFile object wthin the same ASP page. I am using the <FileObj>.close method to cmplete the file. Whenever I attach this file, the resulting email contains garbage text in the body of the email message, as well as the perfectly formatted text file attachment. Whenever I use a previously existing file, the message body and attachment are fine. I'm likely drawing the wrong conclusion, but it appears that ASP has not yet closed the file at the moment when the email attachment is placed. Can you think of a good way to validate this and avoid the circumstance?
