Send form values using AspNetEmail. Can you help me out? Thank You.

P: n/a
Hello,

Can you help me out in making this work? What I want is as simple as sending
form values to an email.

The code I am using is the following:

<Script runat="server">

Private Sub Page_Load()

Dim msg As EmailMessage = New EmailMessage("localhost")

Dim msgTo, msgFrom, msgName, msgSubject, msgMessage

msgTo = Request.Form("to")

msgFrom = Request.Form("from")

msgName = Request.Form("name")

msgSubject = Request.Form("subject")

msgMessage = Request.Form("message")

' Set the email type

msg.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Html

' Set the from address

msg.FromAddress = msgFrom

' Set the to address

msg.To = msgTo

' Set the from name

msg.FromName = msgFrom

' Set the email subject

msg.Subject = msgSubject

' Set the email message

msg.Body = "<html><head><style type='text/css'>body {font-family:
Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px;color: #333333;
background-color: </style></head><body>" &_

"<strong>New Message</strong>" &_

"<br><strong>From: </strong>" & msgFrom &_

"<br><strong>Name: </strong>" & msgName &_

"<br><strong>To: </strong>" & msgTo &_

"<br><strong>Subject: </strong>" & msgSubject &_

"<br><strong>Message Text</strong>" &_

"<br> " & msgMessageField &_

"</body></html>"

' Internal Exceptions

msg.ThrowException = False

' Logging and LogBody

msg.Logging=false

msg.LogBody = false

' Sends Message

If msg.Send() Then

' Redirects to error page

Response.Redirect("status.aspx?result=contactErr")

Else

' Redirects to confirmed page

Response.Redirect("status.aspx?result=contactOk")

End If

End Sub

</script>

I really would appreciate if you could send me a working example using my
code. I am trying to make it work for 1 week and until now I had no luck.

The form has 5 text inputs: to, from, name, subject and message AND a button
which when pressed should send the form values in the email.

I tryied to comment everything I could think of. I am working in ASP.net /
VB.

Thank You Very Much,

Miguel Moura

You don't say exactly what doesn't work with yours (empty form fields, no mail message, etc.), but anyway I would do it in the code-behind (not in the html). Here's a simplified example

Private Sub btnSubmit_Click(ByVal sender As Object,
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSubmit.Clic

' Send the message..
Dim msg As New Mail.MailMessag
msg.To = txtTo.Tex
msg.From = txtFrom.Tex
msg.Body = txtMessage.Tex

Mail.SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "My Mail Server
Mail.SmtpMail.Send(msg

End Su

The form itself just has txtTo, txtFrom, and txtMessage as the IDs of input fields and btnSubmit as the ID of the submit button

If you're not getting any messages sent at all, you might check your smtp server. I don't know all the ins and outs, but do know that you can only use localhost if your box is configured to send mail (mine isn't, and I think it also has to do with the o/s)
