Send Mail Using SMTP

Max
hi

I am using System.Web.Mail.MailMessage with System.Web.Mail.SmtpMail to
send mail. now the my question is,

Is it compulsory to add fields smtpauthenticate, sendusername and
sendpassword fields to MailMessage Object????.

mm.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate",
"1")
mm.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername",
SMTPEmail)
mm.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword",
SMTPPassword)

Which fields will i have to add if my SMTP Server doesn't require
authentication.

None.
Just try once, and you will see, that the mail will be delivered...

You might also take a look at a post I made in response to another question
in this NG under the original posters' subject, "Send email through mapi".

BTW, ... it was sent 9/6/2006... sorry...

I'll just repost the answer here...

'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
'SMTP EMAIL NOTES
'As condensed from: http://www.systemwebmail.com/default.aspx
'1. Have a reference set to the System.Web.dll.
'2. Have "Imports System.Web.Mail" statement at the top of your code.
'3. SmtpMail.SmtpServer must allow relaying for FROM email address or your
IP address,
' or you must use dotNET 1.1 or higher to authenticate.
'SAMPLE SETTINGS
'Dim emlEmail As New System.Web.Mail.MailMessage()
' NOTE: all email addresses can be like: "my********@my-domain.com" - OR -
Fully named like: """John Smith"" <my********@my-domain.com>"
' Also, multiple email addresses can be sent separated by semi-colon
character.
'emlEmail.To = "my********@my-domain.com"
'emlEmail.From = "my********@my-domain.com"
'emlEmail.Cc = "my********@my-domain.com" 'optional
'emlEmail.Bcc = "my********@my-domain.com" 'optional
'emlEmail.Subject = "SUBJECT_HERE"
'emlEmail.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Html
'emlEmail.Body = "BODY OF THE MESSAGE HERE"
'emlEmail.Headers.Add("Reply-To", "my********@my-domain.com")
'Attachments()
'Dim attachment As New System.Web.Mail.MailAttachment("C:\Foo.xls") 'create
the attachment
'emlEmail.Attachments.Add(attachment) 'add the attachment
'Authentication cannot be done using the .NET Framework 1.0. Must use 1.1 or
higher.
'emlEmail.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate",
"1") 'basic authentication
'emlEmail.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername",
"my_username_here") 'set your username here
'emlEmail.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword",
"super_secret") 'set your password here
'SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "EMAIL_SERVER_DOMAIN" 'your real server goes here
'SmtpMail.Send(emlEmail)
'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Watch for text wrapping...

Please note that the above example is for DotNet 1.x
http://www.systemwebmail.com/

To see more information for 2.x, see http://www.systemnetmail.com/

I have found these two sites very useful.

HTH.
