---------
The operation has timed out.
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.Net.Mail.SmtpException: The operation has timed out.

Source Error:


Line 43:         Dim smtp As New SmtpClient
Line 44:         '(4) Send the MailMessage (will use the Web.config settings)
Line 45:         smtp.Send(Mail)
Line 46:         '*************************

Set SmtpClient.Timeout Property. Default is 100 seconds. Set that property to "Int32.MaxValue".

smtp.Timeout = Int32.MaxValue.
