Send email using System.Net.Mail

To send mail using System.Net.Mail, you need to configure your SMTP service in your application's web.config file using these values for mailSettings:

<system.net>
  <mailSettings>
    <smtp from="your email address">
      <network host="relay-hosting.secureserver.net" port="25" />
    </smtp>
  </mailSettings>
</system.net>

The network rule's value will be used when you instantiate an SmtpClient in your code.

C# code example

You can then use code similar to this to send email from your application:

MailMessage message = new MailMessage();
message.From = new MailAddress("your email address");

message.To.Add(new MailAddress("your recipient"));

message.Subject = "your subject";
message.Body = "content of your email";

SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient();
client.Send(message);
