The code to send emails with gmail smtp server doesn't seem to working

What I have tried:

smtp deliveryMethod="Network" from="***"
network host="" port="587" userName="***" password="***"


SmtpClient smptclient = new SmtpClient();
MailMessage message = new MailMessage();
message.To.Add(new MailAddress(txtEmail.Text.ToString()));
message.Subject = "Welcome to XcellIT";
message.Body = "Thank you for joining XcellIT";

Gmail requires encryption, smtpclient.EnableSsl = true. May help, if not there are lots of questions on the subject on this site.

Should smtpclient.EnableSsl = true be on the web.config or aspx.cs file?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions, please do basic research before asking a question like using google. There are loads of examples out there about how to do this and issues you might have. The ultimately answer, however, is to not send email through gmail, use the smtp server provided by your host.
