Paperclip files not being attached to actionmailer. No such file or directory

I am trying to attach a paperclip avatar image to an email, however it doesn't seem to realize it is an image that I am attaching, but when I place the url in my browser it finds the image. I am not sure if it is because of the random numbers that paperclip has at the end or not.

In my Usermailer

attachments.inline['avatar.jpg'] = File.read("localhost:3000#{@user.avatar.url(:medium)}")

In my email

<%= image_tag attachments['avatar.jpg'].url %>

The url it spits out is(The picture is a random stock photo for testing)



You can use the Asset pipeline to attached the actual file path. Have not tested.
