Yesterday I went looking for the old .NET SmtpClient class (allows you to send email messages) and landed on the official docs that warn that the class is obsolete.
SmtpClient Class (System.Net.Mail) | Microsoft Docs[^] WTF | :WTF:

Here's the top of the doc:
[System.Obsolete("SmtpClient and its network of types are poorly designed, we strongly recommend you use https://github.com/jstedfast/MailKit and https://github.com/jstedfast/MimeKit instead")]
public class SmtpClient : IDisposable

I found this at stackoverflow:
c# - Is System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient obsolete in 4.7? - Stack Overflow[^]

It really went back and forth in the comments and answers : posters saying it is and isn't and it's a doc error and not a doc error and why is it in .NET Core 2.2 then?

But there was an answer that said, "Microsoft says to use MailKit now..."
Here's the github : GitHub - jstedfast/MailKit: A cross-platform .NET library for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.[^]

Maybe someone should re-write the System.IO libraries. Poke tongue | ;-P

Pretty soon you wn't even download WinXYZ, you'll just pull a nuget library. Laugh | :laugh:
