I am rebuilding a project that I had made a few years ago and would like to start using .net 2.0.  What object would be the best to use?  On the old project I used CDO.Message.

Thanks

Hi there,

this is a great site that i used when i was asking the same question..

http://www.systemnetmail.com/

gives you basic information as well as more complex stuff so will cover all you need to know.

A simple example from the site to send an email is:

 'create the mail message
Dim mail As New MailMessage()

'set the addresses
mail.From = New MailAddress("me@mycompany.com")
mail.To.Add("you@yourcompany.com")

'set the content
mail.Subject = "This is an email"
mail.Body = "this is a sample body"

'send the message
Dim smtp As New SmtpClient("127.0.0.1")
smtp.Send(mail)

Hi GabicusC;

Here is some sample code to show how to use Net.Mail

Note that this line needs to be changed in the sample code below to the smtp server you are using:

        mailSender = New SmtpClient("Your smtp-server.com", 25)


Imports System.Net.Mail

    Private Sub SendEmail(ByVal sender As String, _
        ByVal recipient As String, ByVal subject As String, _
        ByVal body As String, Optional ByVal attachmentString As String = "")

        Dim fromAddress As New MailAddress(sender)
        Dim toAddress As New MailAddress(recipient)
        Dim message As New MailMessage(fromAddress, toAddress)

        Dim mailSender As SmtpClient
        mailSender = New SmtpClient("Your smtp-server.com", 25)

        message.Bcc.Add(fromAddress)
        message.Subject = subject
        message.IsBodyHtml = False
        message.Body = body

        If Not attachmentString = "" Then
            Dim msgAttach As New Attachment(attachmentString)
            message.Attachments.Add(msgAttach)
        End If

        Try
            mailSender.Send(message)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message, "Error Mail Not Sent")
        End Try

    End Sub


    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
        ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        SendEmail("Fernando-Soto@mydomain.com", "Margarita-Rada@mydomain.com", _
            "This is a test", "This is the Body", "c:\Temp\pp1.pdf")

    End Sub
