Make sure in your code you close the access to the file before you try to delete it.

Thanks lori for your help .

I know i need to close the  access but i don't know how to close that access.

In first access of file i am using function to send mail and i am giving only path to the functin as a string parameter.Like following

Mailing.RelayMail(strSenderName, strSenderAddress, strRecipientName, strRecipientAddress, strSubject, txtBody, attachment)

attachment=Physical path of file.

After  it i am deleting file by using following code.

File.Delete(Physical Path of file as a parameter)

and i dn't know how to close tha access after send attachment .
