Send mail using .NET 1.1

There is now no need to use an additional third party mail component when sending mail from your .NET pages. As of version 1.1 .NET now allows you to select an external SMTP server and to authenticate when sending mail using System.Web.Mail.

A simple script to send an e-mail using the DotNetted mailserver and authentication :

<%@ Import Namespace = "System.Web.Mail" %>

<%

' Create mail object
Dim mail As New MailMessage()

' Define mail settings
mail.To = "you@yoursite.co.uk"
mail.From = "me@mysite.co.uk"
mail.Subject = "this is a test email."
mail.Body = "Some text goes here"

' These lines are required for authentication
' Lines are broken in this view, each should be on a single line - 3 lines total
Mail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1
Mail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") = "me@mysite.co.uk"
Mail.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") = "password"

' Specify SMTP server
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "smtp.dotnetted.co.uk"

' Send the e-mail
SmtpMail.Send(mail)

%>

That's it - you just need to substitute your to, from, username and password values and you should be able to copy this script to your account and send your first e-mail.

Please Note : as we use authentication the 'mail.From' e-mail address must be a live user / mailbox on our mailserver matching the address used for the username (this must be an actual username / mailbox and not an Alias).
