System.Net.Mail - Unable to read data from the transport connection

Hello

I'm migrating an app to ASP.NET 2.0 and I can't get any email out.  I've tried a few different samples of sending email via System.Net.Mail, and tried setting the Web.Config to -

 <system.net>
  <mailSettings>
   <smtp from="">
    <network host="192.168.250.104" password="" userName="" />
   </smtp>
  </mailSettings>
 </system.net>

but I always get the same error -

Unable to read data from the transport connection: net_io_connectionclosed.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.IO.IOException: Unable to read data from the transport connection: net_io_connectionclosed.

Source Error:

Line 116:        
Line 117:        client.Send(message);
Line 118:    }
Line 119:  
 


The code is

    public static void SimpleMailTest()
    {
        System.Net.Mail.MailMessage message = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage();
        message.From = new MailAddress("jakobnixon@jnixon.com");
        message.To.Add(new MailAddress("jakobnixon@jnixon.com"));
        message.Subject = "This is my subject";
        message.Body = "This is the content";

        System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient client = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("192.168.250.104", 25);
       
        client.Send(message);
    }


The IIS SMTP service always worked fine with CDONTS and System.Web.Mail. Any help much appreciated.

1) If it works fine with System.Web.Mail, then why do you need to change to System.Net.Mail?

2) Are you going through a firewall/proxy?

I hadn't realised that Web.Mail was still available in 2.0 - I thought it was left with 1.1.

I've just set it up with Web.Mail and it's fine.  I've no need to use the features of Net.Mail yet, so until that day comes, the transport connetction issue isn't a problem.

Many thanks for your help -
