send Email in 2.0 Pakistan
  • 12 years ago


    When sending emails to an external address, you must provide authentication credentials to the mail server, otherwise they will not be sent.

    So the account you are impersonating the emails from is the accout you will provide the credentials for and the emails should go.

    I have some example code of what i use to send external emails if you need it.

    This is what i use.


    Dim objMail As MailMessage = New MailMessage

    Dim objMailClient As SmtpClient = New SmtpClient

    objMail.From = New Net.Mail.MailAddress(SendFrom) ' SendFrom should be the full email address of the account you are sending from e.g. [email protected]

    For Each strAddress In SendTo.Split(";") ' SendTo should be a string of email addresses separated by a ;

    objMail.To.Add(New MailAddress(strAddress))


    objMail.Subject = "Subject Line"

    objMail.Body = "The Body of the Email"

    objMailClient.Host = ServerIP ' the ip address of node name of the email server

    objMailClient.Credentials =
    New Net.NetworkCredential(UserName, Password) ' username should be the usre account e.g. test and the password for that account

    objMailClient.DeliveryMethod = Net.Mail.SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network
