Dear Arun,

Make sure you are using System.Net. Tested and the easiest way to send mail is following:
MailMessage MyMM = new MailMessage("fromabc@gmail.com", "toxyz@gmail.com", "subject", "body");
Attachment MyAttachment = new Attachment(filename); 
MyMM.Attachments.Add(MyAttachment);
MyMM.IsBodyHtml= true;
SmtpClient MySC = new SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com",587);
MySC.EnableSsl=true;
MySC.Send(MyMM);


Do not forget to establish mailsetting in Web.config underlying system.net tag. e.g.

XML
<system.net>
    <mailSettings>
      <smtp from="fromabc@gmail.com" deliveryMethod="Network">
        <network host="smtp.gmail.com" port="587" userName="fromabc@gmail.com" password="1234AA88"/>
      </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
  </system.net>


I hope it will help you.

Regards!
Aman

Unless you have a mail server on your local box, that won't work.

You probably also need some credentials (userID/password) to send/read mail on your mail server. If you don't need those things, you have no business running a mail server that's exposed to the internet.

Lastly, turn off CapsLock when you enter messages here. It annoys everyone to be yelled at.

This line;
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "smtp.localhost";


Really makes no sense, unless you hae a mail server on your local machine.

If you do not have an email server on your local machine you need to set it to a valid mail server like "mail.somehost" or "smtp.somehost".

If you take australias telstra for example it would be "mail.bigpond.com" word of warning this server WILL NOT WORK FOR YOU.
