smtp

JD
Is it possible using the smtp class in asp.net to send emails and
authenticate to the mail server that is sending the emails out.

Currently I have a web application that works fine on my machine, will send
email to both my company email addresses and to non-company email addresses.
However, as soon as I move the app into the production server it does not
send email to non company email addresses. What I mean by company is our
domain could @domain.com and it will work fine sending emails to any one
with that email address, but anyone without that in their email address and
it crashes. Any help on this would be appreciated.

It doesn't really matter.

First of all you should know System.Web.Mail is just a wrapper over CDO
objects.

And then MailMessage also have property called "Fields" that you can use.

Just use the field names in the example to fill in the information.

JD,

I think the problem is : The production server requires authentication
before you can send a mail using a specific email Id.

In ASP .Net there is no direct way to achieve this, so the solution Lau has
suggested can be implemented in ASP .Net by adding a reference to the COM
object.

This works for me (and no COM wrapper stuff or CDO objects needed):

System.Web.Mail.MailMessage mail = new System.Web.Mail.MailMessage();
mail.To = destinationAddresses;
mail.From = fromAddress;
mail.Subject = subjectLine;
mail.Body = mailBody;
mail.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate",
"1"); //basic authentication
mail.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername",
m_SMTPLoginID); //set your username here
mail.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword",
m_SMTPLoginPW); //set your password here
System.Web.Mail.SmtpMail.SmtpServer = m_SMTPMailServer; // e.g.,
"mail.MyDomain.com"; //your smtp server goes here
System.Web.Mail.SmtpMail.Send( mail );

Is it possible using the smtp class in asp.net to send emails and
authenticate to the mail server that is sending the emails out.

Currently I have a web application that works fine on my machine, will
send email to both my company email addresses and to non-company email
addresses. However, as soon as I move the app into the production server
it does not send email to non company email addresses. What I mean by
company is our domain could @domain.com and it will work fine sending
emails to any one with that email address, but anyone without that in
their email address and it crashes. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Keep in mind that the method I showed to you is officially "undocumented" -
meaning it might not be supported in the future. I suspect that's why this
solution is rarely recommended.

I'm sure the MVPs around here are aware of this undocumented solution - but
they don't recommend it - and probably for good reason. I'd be interested in
knowing why. This question is posed with some regularity and they always
seem to recommend some more complicated method that relies on CDO/COM
wrapper-based solution.

Hi, Jeremy.

re:

recommend it - and probably for good reason.
The only reason to use that is if the smtp server needs authentication.

I've sent quite a few references to this FAQ page in response
to questions about sending authenticated smtp mail:

http://www.systemwebmail.com/faq/3.8.aspx

If the server doesn't need authenticacion, the standard, less complicated,
methods of sending mail ( the "wrappers" you refer to ) work just fine,
so why introduce complicated schema code if there's no need for it ?

The best reference site for system.web.mail is this FAQ :

http://www.systemwebmail.com/faq.aspx

I don't think I've come up with a problem not documented/solved there.
