First of all, when you says "on my computer" does it means that your odoo is installed on the same computer too or on a different one?

If its on the same machine, then python has built-in functions to access files. check this thread for more info: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3362600/how-to-send-email-attachments-with-python .

If your odoo server is on a remote machine, you have to understand that all the core python codes are executed on the server and not on the client machine
