Sure. When you convert the file content into a string,
then you need its size as memory.

Almost surely, the "sendmail" tag builds its message completely
in memory before it transfers it to the mail server.
Thus, you will need the message size anyway in memory.
Converting to a string will at most double the required
memory. Thus, maybe not a big problem.
