Posted on 2007-04-10

here is my snippet from my config file...
and here is the code without referencing the appconfig
Dim mMailMessage As New MailMessage()
'sender e-mail address.
mMailMessage.From = New MailAddress("firstname.lastname@example.org")
'recipient e-mail address.
' Set the subject of the mail message
mMailMessage.Subject = "ALERT"
' Set the body of the mail message
mMailMessage.Body = "<HTML><BODY><B>ALERT! The system did not process the ADS_Blend Job</B></BODY></HTML>"
' Set the format of the mail message body as HTML
mMailMessage.IsBodyHtml = True
' Set the priority of the mail message to normal
mMailMessage.Priority = MailPriority.Normal
' Instantiate a new instance of SmtpClient
Dim mSmtpClient As New SmtpClient()
mSmtpClient.Host = "127.0.0.1"
' Send the mail message
