Help, Can't send to SMTP using SmtpClient using SSL on port 465



The following code is giving me a timeout problem., no matter what I do I
can't send a piece of mail using .net2.0 System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient via port
465 and using ssl, if however I try using outlook or outlook express it
works fine..

System.Net.Mail.MailMessage msgMail = new
System.Net.Mail.MailMessage("my*****@mydomain.com" ,
"te*******@mydomain.com", "subject", "message body");

SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("smtp.postoffice.net", 465);

smtp.EnableSsl = true;

smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = false;

smtp.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;

smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(my*****@mydomain.com,
"mypassword");

try

{

// the following line is where it times out

smtp.Send(msgMail);

}

catch (Exception ex)

{

}

I also did a trace log and this is what it looks like...

Thanks, but this is just test code, when I trace it through the debugger I
get a timout exception thrown.. do you have any idea as to why I cannot get
SmtpClient working with SSL and 465?

Thanks,

Does your server use implicit or explicit SSL/TLS? I don't know which one
SmtpClient class support but it looks like it supports not the one that your
server uses.

Our SMTP client component supports both imlicit and explicit TLS. See http://www.eldos.com/sbb/desc-ssl-features.php

I'm trying to connect with the usa.net mail server, which is
smtp.postoffice.net I would assume it support both, aswell I have tried
this with both tls on and tls off using my own mail server.. no cigar.. Do
you see anything wrong with my code?

Try 587.

Download the code from here:
http://sholliday.spaces.live.com/Blog/cns!A68482B9628A842A!138.entry

and see if you can tweak the settings to work with your setup.

Hi,

telnet smtp.postoffice.net 587 does not connect, it appears that this smtp
server only accepts connections on port 465. Also this application is a C#
winform application..

does you have any other suggestions, this is really frustrating..

thanks,

All I can tell you is that usa.net SMTP uses implicit TLS on port 465 and
explicit TLS on port 25 (pretty standard way).
I've checked our client in both modes and it worked fine. I can say nothing
about .NET class.
