This question was descussed some months ago in VB.NET forum, but the user there wanted to
send mail through the Yahoo Servers, which isn't allowed.

The thing about using System.Web.Mail namespace is that if you don't specify
a SMTP server name then it picks up the name from your computer.

Have you ever thought about using a Perl script? So easy to use.
