This example shows how to send email attachments from LabVIEW using any SMTP email service, such as Gmail.
This example is based off of a previous example, which enables you to send an email using Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) to sync up with Gmail in LabVIEW. The code has been simplified and cleaned up in this example.
