Hi

I'm writing an application that has a html feedback form included. I am trying to send the information back through email but am having difficulty when setting the MailServerName.
 
This is the code I am using

private void SendMail(string from, string body)
    {
        string mailServerName = "smtp.MyServerName.com";
        MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, "test@test.com", "feedback", body);
        SmtpClient mailClient = new SmtpClient();
        mailClient.Host = mailServerName;
        mailClient.Send(message);
        message.Dispose();
    }

The error that I am getting when I run the script is "SmtpException was unhandled by User code - Failure Sending Mail" and it points to the line mailClient.Send(message);

So I figure it is having trouble when I am putting in the ServerName, I'm new to this, is there anyway I can change this around to take the IP address instead to see if that works?

See below for some sample code, it sends an email via an account which requires authentication: -

            System.Net.Mail.MailMessage mail = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage();

            //set the addresses
            mail.From = new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("errorMgr@MySite.com");
            mail.To.Add("TestUser@SomeSite.com");
            mail.Subject = "The Subject";
            mail.Body = "This is the messsage Body;

            System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient smtp = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("mail.MySite.com");
            //Alternativly you can use an IP address
            //System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient smtp = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("192.168.11.1");
            smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("errorMgr@MySite.com", "errorMgr");
            smtp.Send(mail);
