Hi,
I am using asp.net 3.5 version and trying to send email from my application. I am using following codes:
C#
MailMessage Mail = new MailMessage();
Mail.From = new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("username");
Mail.To.Add("recipient mail id");
Mail.Subject = TextBox3.Text;
Mail.Body = TextBox4.Text;
Mail.Priority = MailPriority.High;

SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com");
smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("username", "password");
smtp.EnableSsl = true;
smtp.Send(Mail);


But I am getting following error:
The requested address is not valid in its context 74.125.47.109:25

Can anyone send me the proper code to resolve this error.

Minor Edit for Grammar.

Is the port open? Firewall permissions in place?
Further make sure you have configured SMTP configuration in Web.Config:
<system.net>
   <mailSettings>
     <smtp from="abc@somedomain.com">
       <network host="somesmtpserver" port="25" userName="name" password="pass" defaultCredentials="true" />
     </smtp>
   </mailSettings>
</system.net>

If needed, have a look at this Microsoft Video tutorial:
Use ASP.NET to send Email from Website[^]
If needed, there are lots of article on this very site on how to send emails.

I am getting error on adding following code to web.config
XML
<system.net>
    <mailSettings>
      <smtp from="abc@somedomain.com">
        <network host="somesmtpserver" port="25" userName="name" password="pass" defaultCredentials="true" />
      </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
 </system.net>


Error is :

Please let me know the solution for this.
