Add uploaded file as email attachments

Add uploaded file as email attachments

New member | Level 2

Hi guys,

 

I recently read the DropBox API documentation and I'm trying to create an application to store my pdf files into my drive. Based on the documentation I dont have any problem to upload and download files but Do you have any idea how I can attach the file I uploaded to DropBox to an email using C#? 

 

I dont want to add the file link I need to attach the physical file to my email.

 

Thanks in advanced.

Re: Add uploaded file as email attachments

As you found, the Dropbox API offers the ability to upload, download, and share files to/from Dropbox. It doesn't offer functionality for directly emailing files as attachments though. 

 

If you have a file that you wish to email as an attachment, whether you happened to upload or download that file to/from Dropbox, I'm afraid that's not something we can help with. You'll need to implement the code in your app for sending email with an attachment, using third party libraries/services, as necessary.
