    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);

        send = (Button) this.findViewById(R.id.btnsend);

}

I am using 3 external jar files.

  1. activation.jar
  2. additional.jar
  3. mail.jar

You should be referencing to PDF file myfile.pdf in asset directory using URI like:

Uri uri=Uri.parse("file:///android_asset/myfile.pdf");

i've done for send any file from SD card with mail attachment..

Intent sendEmail= new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
       sendEmail.setType("rar/image");
       sendEmail.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, Uri.fromFile(new        
         File("/mnt/sdcard/download/abc.rar")));
         startActivity(Intent.createChooser(sendEmail, "Email:"));
You need to login account before you can post.
