   content->MediaType = MediaTypeNames::Text::Plain;
   
   //Send the message.
   // Include credentials if the server requires them.
   SmtpClient^ client = gcnew SmtpClient( server );
   client->Credentials = CredentialCache::DefaultNetworkCredentials;
   client->Send( message );
   data->~Attachment();
   client->~SmtpClient();
}


public static void CreateMessageInlineAttachment2(string server, string
textMessage)
{
	// Create a message and set up the recipients.
	MailMessage message = new MailMessage(
	   "jane@contoso.com",
	   "ben@contoso.com",
	   "A text message for you.",
	   "Message: ");

	// Attach the message string to this email message.
	Attachment data = new Attachment(textMessage);
	// Send textMessage as part of the email body.
	message.Attachments.Add(data);
	ContentType content = data.ContentType;
	content.MediaType = MediaTypeNames.Text.Plain;
	//Send the message.
	// Include credentials if the server requires them.
	SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient(server);
	client.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials;

   try { 
      client.Send(message);
    }
    catch (Exception ex) {
      Console.WriteLine("Exception caught in CreateMessageInlineAttachment2: {0}", 
                  ex.ToString() );
    }
	data.Dispose();
}

Remarks

In the following example of a Content-Type header, the value of the MediaType property is "application/x-myType".

content-type: application/x-myType; name=data.xyz

Set this property to null or String.Empty to remove the name information from the header.

The syntax of the Content-Type header is described in RFC 2045 Section 5.1. RFC 2046 provides detailed information on MIME media types. These RFCs are available at https://www.ietf.org.
