Easy way to send mails using SMTP, in .NET.

Sample Image - MainQuickMail.jpg


Quick Mail is a simple way to send mail using SMTP, in .NET. Moreover, my article will provide the usage of DataGrid, XML manipulation and tab control.

Brief Description

QuickMail is a utility that you can use to send mails easily. The most common use is to add, edit and delete groups, and users based on groups.

It provides a facility to frame a mail in HTML and rich text formats. Not only mails, it supports adding attachments with mail. Provided, you have to specify the SMTP server name.

Here, you can create a group and create username based on group. You can easily edit, delete usernames and group information. Here, I have developed "Add Recipient" form like Outlook and "Set Font Properties" form like Windows.

Mainly, you can send the mail here with HTML and text options. You can attach any file with your mail. Provided, you have to specify the SMTP server name here. If SMTP server is running in your machine, you can refer "localhost". Otherwise, give proper SMTP server name which you are using.

Here, I have not used any database for storing your group and user name information. I have used XML. So, it's easy to use.

and I think the program would be a great tutorial for those (like me) wanting a bare-bones demonstration of email in C#, but you really need to work on the article content.

What about receiving email? It would be nice if that tab existed. Would round out the program.
