Navneet Sharma's Article for mailing from windows application


Screenshot - coolcode2.jpg

Introduction

This article can be used to send emails from windows forms while developing from C# applications in .Net 3.0 environment and I have used the assemblies and method to be added to the code for the smooth functionality.This code has been inherited and implemented by me after a survey on the web and contains the items useful for email over web as well as windows applications.

Background

This article can be used to send emails from windows forms while developing from C# applications in .Net 3.0 environment

Using the code

Copy this code to send emails from windows forms while developing from C# application in .Net 3.0 environment and I have used the assemblies and method to be added to the code for the smooth functionality. Also add the server name in the "SMTPServer" which is used to send emails which can be your localhost also which can be denoted by "." and the method named sendMail() can be called anywhere in your code(where you want) for e.g. Button1_Click event.

Copy the below code and paste it into your application.

//
//-------------------------------Assemblies------------------------------------------------
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Mail;

//-------------------------------Method------------------------------------------------

private void sendMail()

{

string strMailTo, strMailFrom, strCC,strBCC, strSubject, strBody;
try

{

strMailTo = <a href="mailto:np.mca1982@gmail.com;strMailFrom">np.mca1982@gmail.com;</a>

strMailFrom = <a href="mailto:yourmailid@abc.com">yourmailid@abc.com</a>;
strSubject = <a href="mailto:abc@abc.com;strReportName">"Demo Mail"</a>;

strBody = "Mail Body to be sent goes here.";
strCC = <a href="mailto:np.mca1982@gmail.com;strBCC">np.mca1982@gmail.com</a>;

strBCC = <a href="mailto:np.mca1982@gmail.com;MailMessage">np.mca1982@gmail.com</a>;

MailMessage mm = new MailMessage();

mm.To.Add(strMailTo);

mm.From = new MailAddress(strMailFrom);

mm.CC.Add(strCC);

mm.Bcc.Add(strBCC);

mm.Subject = strSubject;

mm.Body = strBody;

mm.Priority = MailPriority.Normal;

mm.BodyEncoding = Encoding.UTF8;

mm.IsBodyHtml = false;

SmtpClient smtp=new SmtpClient("SMTPServer");   //Add the server name/ip or localhost here

smtp.Send(mm);
}
catch (Exception ex)

{
