[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've been through that too and switched to Mailkit and Mimekit using Nuget to take care of the dependencies.
I think you may find that if you change the SMTP Port you should still be able to use the .NET SmtpClient.
It should be port 25 for ssl connections that still works with the old .NET class - I have some unit tests with my old .NET SmtpClient class using port 25 and the tests pass.

Of course only time can show "usefullness" of the class and it's normal when you find "obsolete" of design which was done 10 years ago. BUT... why MS itself not fixing anything?? WHAT they are busy that they cannot rewrite one of most important classes? (be sure, mail notifications used everywhere!)
MS can just make show how cool they are, "hard working", "hiring the best" and other BS. But reality shows they hire 10 indians for $100/month and do WORST code in the world. How long MS suppose to roll down??
hehe Yep! Well, they have not bad ideas in these products, but MS cannot follow idea where it suits - they always go to extreme case and... lose.
I wish I have UWP, but not under Windows-Spy-10. And separate OS for mobile world also could be nice. Seems programmers give ideas to the top management, but tops are so stupid that bloat any idea till marasmus level.
There's this engine called "DarkPlaces", and it improves on Q1's original performance and appearance, as well as being compatible with the official mission packs. It seems that all you need from the original game is the pak files to get it to go. It's available for both Windows and Linux, and it's free.
You can download Quake 1 for free, so everything you need (just the .pak files) should be available at no cost.
I'm still investigating quakeworld... DarkPlaces allows you to connect to quakeworld servers. I don't know what you need from quakeworld in order to connect. I'm guessing just the pak files, like for Q1. (I was right - you need the pak files from Q1.)
