I have an account at This free webhosting also gives you web-emails accounts.-I have register one :)-

What I want is to sent emails with Visual Basic Windows Forms to that email server.
We all know that we can do this with Gmail....

MyMailMessage.From() = New MailAddress("gmail-account")
            MyMailMessage.Subject = "anything"
            MyMailMessage.Body = "anything"
            Dim SMTP As New SmtpClient("")
            SMTP.Port = 587
            SMTP.EnableSsl = True
            SMTP.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential("gmail-account", "gmail-password")

I will also write the Informations you will need to find a code that can do this.


To configure email client such as Outlook Express you need these details:

Type of incoming mail server: POP3 or IMAP
Incoming mail (POP3 / IMAP) server:
Outgoing (SMTP) server: you need to use your ISP (Internet Service Provider) SMTP server. Call your ISP to know your SMTP (mail sending) server. In case you are unable to get SMTP server, you can use WebMail for email sending.

Their webmail clients are : RoundCube , AtMail , SquirrelMail

Can you help me guys?

Thanks in advance,

The SMTP (used for sending out emails to your ISP) protocol has three distinct ports used by ISP's to listen for incoming message from clients. These ports are 25, 465 and 587. It is also important to understand that some ISP's you will need to specify to use SSL or that you need to send your Username and Password of your mailbox to verify that you are a client before the ISP will accept your email message. This is called SMTP Authentication.

Not all ISP's require you to connect with SSL but they do require you to authenticate. SSL authentication happens on port 465 and 587 while standard authentication can be done on port 25.
