I have deployed my application on the server and now I come to know that my server would not provide me SMTP detail , is their any way I could send sms without smtp details.I can use bot asp.net3.5 with C# or SQL Server 2005 to send mail.

I've been running a customer's webapplication using automatically generated email for some time, being hosted on our company's web server. Send mail was done using the System.Net.Mail API using a 3rd party SMTP server. The configuration has been done in the web.config in the system.net section, something like this:
Everything worked fine until we had to migrate to another hosting service; since then, send mail didn't work any longer with symtomatic "timeout" exceptions. We also tried using gmail and changing/omitting explicit port number specification, without any success. The server is running IIS 6 (Windows Server 2003 R2).
We are experiencing some strange behaviour on one of our ASP.NET web servers (Windows 2003 64-bit). After some activity, two third-party controls are unable to run correctly. One is log4net (it does not write error messages out) and the other is a menu control (it displays eval message instead of picking up its license). The one common thread is that both controls pick up their config from external config files (linked to from web.config).
Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this or experienced this in any way. Is it related to file/folder rights? The server has been running fine for a while and just started exhibiting this behaviour. Perhaps it occurs around the time the worker processes are recycled.
I have a "Contact Us" page where in users will give in their email id and a query and on submitting the form, web admin would receive that email.
If I configure their email id to "from" MailAddress and send the mail, it will fail to do so if the ID is from popular mail domains like gmail or hotmail but would work with other unpopular or non existent domains like email@example.com without any credentials provided!
It worked with gmail after I configured SMTP and network credentials properly. The aim is to let the admin of my website who receives the email be able to hit the reply button in his mail client and see the "to" field populated with the "from" field filled in "contact us" page. Is there any proper way to do this or a tip or trick to accomplish it.
We at Our company having our own local network in which consists around 20 users. We do not have Internet connections. Now I've created an asp.net website to share the data among the different users.How to create unique mail ids for each user.
I am sending mails thru SMTP server. If i use HTML body, then email is going to JUNK folder. If plain Text, then email going to Inbox. But I need to use HTML in body, without going email to JUNK. Any ideas?
I am sending this email from valid email address. i.e firstname.lastname@example.org. abc is our company name. All other emails, which I get from this email address goes to Inbox only. But when i try to send mail it is going to JUNK, if body is HTML.
I have code that is supposed to do some database operations and then send an email through local iis smtp virtual server. All within one TransactionScope. It looks like
The second one where I use something similiar is
I want to notice that these events fire in the sequence they are shown. Now when there's an error, the db operations are rolled back, but the mail is sent anyway. I'm using Windows XP SP3, IIS 5.1, .Net 3.5, Visual Studio 2008. If I'm correct, TransactionScope uses MSDTC, right? I couldn't find anything about MSDTC working with smtp. Should it even work?
Code: Dim mail As New MailMessage() mail.From = New MailAddress("email@example.com") mail.To.Add("firstname.lastname@example.org") mail.To.Add("email@example.com")
until my provider changed in his server settings. He now tells me that I cannot use specific IP adress. How do I access a specific host instead? He told me that this is the right host: pubsmtp.directit.dk
When sending email using MailClient, is it possible to have the .From property be for an email of a different domain than the credentials passed to the SMTP server? E.g., my credentials passed in are @mydomain.com, but the .From email is @anotherdomain.com. Or, must they be the same?
