Migrating a .Net1.1 Email Notification Service to .Net 3.5

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm planning to re-engineer an Email Notification Service (Windows Service)
in C# using .net framework 3.5 which was previously written in c# using .net
framework 1.1. In the old version, Lotus Notes and Domino were used to
process the notifications and in newer version we are planning to use SMTP
instead of Domino.

Any ideas, suggession or advice related to above scenario will be
appreciated!!

Thanks,

Be aware that .NET has no support for *incoming* mail protocols as part of
the framework. As long as you only need to *send* mail, SMTP will do fine.

As far as the transition from 1.1 to 3.5 goes, your main hurdle is going
from 1.1 to 2.0. The 3.5 framework is just the 2.0 SP1 runtime with
additional classes, so the change from 2.0 to 3.5 isn't nearly as substantial.

Even so, most code "just works" when you recompile it, though you may get
deprecation warnings about constructs no longer supported in 1.1. Rewriting
these is usually fairly easy. Here's a detailed post on the migration, which
works more or less the same for going straight to 3.5 and VS 2008:
