I need some advice on what to use for adding multiple attachment to a email. I'm using VB 2010.
First, I have a Form in my company web site to fill a reclamation ..... when you fill and send it, it convert the form into a PDF, save it in the client side "TEMP" and finally get the PDF and send it to a email..... that's perfectly fine. I add to the
form the capability of attach multiple files with file upload to the same "TEMP" and displayed in a Grid View to remove or add files and send everything to a email, the attachment capability is working. Everything is working with the PDF not the files(attachments).
There is a way to get the multiple files from the "TEMP" folder and add it to some dynamically variable (array list, attachment collection, list collection, etc.) so all can be send to the email. I already know the way to put it into the email with the PDF.
The problem is to get the files and add it to the dynamic variable and that it work with the email.
If the code is need it, let me know.

I’m gething the PDF directly by a path in a string variable:
AttFile = PdfTempFolder & "Temp\FormaLiabilityMunicipios" & Session.SessionID & ".pdf"
Then put it in here:
If File.Exists(AttFile) = True Then
EmailCls.CreateMessageWithAttch(AttFile, EmailAsunto, ToEmail, CCEmail, EmailMessage)
Me.EmailCopiaTextBox.Text = ""
Me.PnlDescarga.Visible = True
Me.DescargaLnk.NavigateUrl = UrlPath
I’m looking for some way to use the Dyrectory.GetFiles(PdfTempFolder & "\Temp\") for each one of the files and put it in a variable defined as:
Dim attach_items As Net.Mail.AttachmentCollection so I can use it like this:
EmailCls.CreateMessageWithAttch(AttFile, attach_items, EmailAsunto, ToEmail, CCEmail, EmailMessage)
And send every file in the AttachmentCollection.
Thanks for your help.

to have the AttFile not string , but List<string>
then List<string> attfiles =new List<string>();
foreach(string FileName in Dyrectory.GetFiles(PdfTempFolder & "\Temp\*.pdf"))
EmailCls.CreateMessageWithAttch(attfiles, EmailAsunto, ToEmail, CCEmail, EmailMessage)
Please see in CreateMessageWithAttch how you attach the AttFile and then use a foreach to attach the

Dim files() As String = Directory.GetFiles(PdfTempFolder & "\TEMP\")
Dim attach_item As String
If files.Length > 0 Then
For i As Integer = 0 To files.Length - 1
