i want to know one more thing, is necessary that the local machine on the networks needs to have smtp server on its own, or is it enough if its connected in the network to send an email.

I am not sure for field names.
I think that you don't need local SMTP server if you are using a remote computer's SMTP service.

mmcdoconfig.Fields("Smtpserver") = "smtp.hotpop.com"
mmcdoconfig.Fields("smtpserverport") = 25
mmcdoconfig.Fields("Username") = "raj_itengg@HotPOP.com"
mmcdoconfig.Fields("Password") = "abcdef1"
mmcdoconfig.Fields("SendemailAddress") = from_email
mgcdomsg.Subject = val4
mgcdomsg.MimeFormatted = True.
