Send mail using .NET 2.0 +

Sending e-mail through scripts under the .NET 2.0 framework is different to the 1.1 framework as System.Web.Mail has now been replaced by System.Net.Mail with an entirely different set of properties / methods.

Below is a simple script to send an e-mail using the DotNetted mailserver and authentication under .NET 2.0 :

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


' Create a new MailMessage object and specify the "From" and "To" addresses
Dim Email As New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage("", "")

' Set Mail subject and body text
Email.Subject = "Enter your mail subject here"
Email.Body = "Enter your body text here"

' Create SmtpClient object
Dim mailClient As New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient()

' Create object to store authentication username and password
Dim basicAuthenticationInfo As New System.Net.NetworkCredential("", "*password_for_that_mailbox*")

' Set mail server address
mailClient.Host = ""

' Do not use default security credentials
mailClient.UseDefaultCredentials = False

' Do use those specified above
mailClient.Credentials = basicAuthenticationInfo

' Send e-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).
