Sending E-Mail using ASP.Net (VB.Net Example)
Posted by Paul Woodland on 30 September 2012 04:11 AM
If you are sending mail through ASP.Net on your website, you must use SMTP authentication through our Script Mail service, of which details can be found here:
ASP.Net includes built-in support for sending using SMTP authentication, no third party components are needed. The auth details can be set in web.config if you do not wish to include them in your code.
Example of sending email through ASP.Net using VB.Net:
' Create the mail message
Dim mail As New MailMessage()
' Set the to and from addresses
mail.From = New MailAddress("firstname.lastname@example.org")
' Set the subject and body
mail.Subject = "Test Message"
mail.Body = "This is a test"
' Set the host, username and password
Dim smtp As New SmtpClient("uk.scriptmail.yourwebservers.com")
smtp.Credentials = New NetworkCredential("YOUR USERNAME", "YOUR PASSWORD")
' Send the message
