  • It does not seem possible in WP8 to do this. I would recommend that you create a webservice that handles this task for you.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • You can try 3rd Party control to send Email with attachment

    http://www.nuget.org/packages/MailMessage/2.0.2

    Else as suggested by "Matt Small" Web Service is the best option.

  • You can't do this with WP8.0. With WP8.1 arbitrary mail attachments will become possible however.
