I want to send an email to my gmail id from my web application. For now I was sending from my same id(i.e. from/to on same ID).

SmtpClient smtpClient = new SmtpClient();
                MailAddress fromAddress = new MailAddress("");
                MailAddress toAddress = new MailAddress("");
                MailMessage message = new MailMessage(fromAddress, toAddress);
                message.Subject = "Feedback";
                message.IsBodyHtml = false;
                message.Body = "navneet";
                message.Priority = MailPriority.Normal;
                message.BodyEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
                smtpClient.Host = "";
                smtpClient.Port = 587;
                smtpClient.UseDefaultCredentials = false;
                smtpClient.Credentials = new               System.Net.NetworkCredential("", "password");
                smtpClient.EnableSsl = true;
