Sending an email from your ASP.NET web application


In this tip, I will show you how to send mail from your ASP.NET web application.

Sending Email From Your Web Application

  1. For sending mail, you will need to use these libraries:
    using System.Net.Mail;
    using System.Net; 
  2. Use this code to send mail:
    System.Net.Mail.MailMessage mm = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage();
    	mm.To.Add(new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("Email Address","Name"));
    	mm.From = new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("Email Address");
    	mm.Sender = new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("Email Address","Name");
    	mm.Subject = "This is Test Email";
    	mm.Body = "<h3>This is Testing SMTP Mail Send By Me</h3>";
    	mm.IsBodyHtml = true;
    	mm.Priority = System.Net.Mail.MailPriority.High; // Set Priority to sending mail
    	System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient smtCliend = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient();
    	smtCliend.Host = "Your smtp server";
    	smtCliend.Port = 25;    // SMTP port no            
    	smtCliend.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("User Name", "Password");
    	smtCliend.DeliveryMethod = System.Net.Mail.SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
    	catch (System.Net.Mail.SmtpException ex)
    		lblMsg.Text = ex.ToString();
    	catch (Exception exe)
    		lblMsg.Text = "\n\n\n"+exe.ToString();
