Sending Mail Using ASP.NET

Below you will find an example of sending email from your Web Wiz Hosted Website using ASP.NET.

In order to send email you will first need to Setup a Mailbox from your Hosting Control Panel to use to send your email.

You would then enter the email address for your mailbox where it has "you@your-email-here.com" and the password where it has "YourPasswordHere" in the example below.

If you are sending email from a "Contact Us" form on your website you may wish to use the website visitors address when replying to teh email. For this you would set a "Reply-To" address with the visitors email address where you see "reply-to@your-email-here.com"

MailMessage objEmail = new MailMessage();

// Who the e-mail is from, this needs to be the same as your SMTP Server username
objEmail.From = new MailAddress("you@your-email-here.com");

// Who the e-mail is sent to

// Who to reply-to when replying to the email
objEmail.Headers.Add("Reply-To", "reply-to@your-email-here.com");

objEmail.Subject = "SUBJECT: Test mail from WebWiz";
objEmail.Body = "BODY: Text for body";

SmtpClient mail = new SmtpClient();

mail.EnableSsl = true;
mail.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;

mail.Timeout = 20000;

// Must be set BEFORE .Credentials!
mail.UseDefaultCredentials = false;

// SMTP Server Credentials, SMTP Server username and Password
mail.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("you@your-email-here.com", "YourPasswordHere");

mail.Host = "smtp.WebSiteLive.net";
mail.Port = 587;


Please note that depending on the version of ASP.NET that you have set for your website and the pipeline type you may need to Change ASP.NET to Full Trust in order for the above code to function correctly.
