Cannot send email due to antivirus

April 13, 2006

Hi all

I am trying to send an email through my application (VB.NET 2005). The email
goes as required. However if I turn 'Internet Auto Protect' feature ON in
Norton Antivirus, the email goes only when I exit from my VB application.

Please assist.

Source Code

**********
Dim Mail As New MailMessage()

Mail.From = New MailAddress(xx*@xxx.com)

Mail.To.Add("yy*@yyy.com")

Mail.Subject = "Subject Test Email"

Mail.Body = "This is the body of the test email"

Dim Smtp As New SmtpClient("000.000.000.000")

Smtp.Send(Mail)

Well, if you want the email to go then turn the feature off.

Your AV software is probably blocking port 25 which is SMTP (mail xfer
protocol.) Reconfigure your AV to not block this port and your problem will
likely go away.
