Experts,

I need to create a form to send a few text details and a text/word file to a set email address. I have the form designed in the front page. Where I'm having a problem is in getting working C# code. I have tried a few different examples I've found with no luck.

Below is my front page code and what I have in the.cs which won't compile at the moment.

Can anyone help?
.aspx:
 
<%@ Page Title="Ambassador Recruitment - Jobseekers - Submit CV" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Right.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="submitcv.aspx.cs" Inherits="jobseekers_submitcv" %>
 
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder_Text" Runat="Server">
	<h1>Submit CV</h1>
	<div>
		<table width="600" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#cccccc">
			<tr>
				<td align="right" bgcolor="#eeeeee" style="width: 150px">&nbsp;Name</td>
				<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Columns="50"></asp:TextBox>
				</td>
			</tr>
			<tr>
				<td align="right" bgcolor="#eeeeee" style="width: 150px">&nbsp;Email</td>
				<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><asp:TextBox ID="txtFrom" runat="server" Columns="50"></asp:TextBox>
				</td>
			</tr>
			<tr>
				<td align="right" bgcolor="#eeeeee" style="width: 150px">&nbsp;Attach CV</td>
				<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
					<asp:FileUpload ID="txtAttachmentPath" runat="server" />
				</td>
			</tr>
			<tr>
				<td align="right" bgcolor="#eeeeee" style="width: 150px">&nbsp;Employment Division</td>
				<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
					<asp:dropdownlist ID="DropdownSubitDivision" runat="server" 
						DataSourceID="XMLSourceJobCategory" DataTextField="display" 
						DataValueField="value" Width="150px"></asp:dropdownlist>
				</td>
			</tr>
			<tr>
			<td align="right" bgcolor="#eeeeee" style="width: 150px">&nbsp;Optional Comment</td>
			<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><asp:TextBox ID="txtBody" runat="server" Columns="40" TextMode="MultiLine"></asp:TextBox></td>
			</tr>
			<tr>
			<td align="right" bgcolor="#eeeeee" style="width: 150px">&nbsp;</td>
			<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" runat="server" Text="Send Email" /></td>
			</tr>
		</table>
	</div>
</asp:Content>

Thanks for that. I've found this link before but got stuck trying to find a SMTP that would work and setting up a attachement browse button.

I get:

System.Net.Mail.SmtpException: The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first. w5sm31230747mue.10 at System.Net.Mail.MailCommand.CheckResponse(SmtpStatusCode statusCode, String response) at System.Net.Mail.MailCommand.Send(SmtpConnection conn, Byte[] command, String from) at System.Net.Mail.SmtpTransport.SendMail(MailAddress sender, MailAddressCollection recipients, String deliveryNotify, SmtpFailedRecipientException& exception) at System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient.Send(MailMessage message) at jobseekers_submitcv.btnSubmit_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in c:\Users\Denis\Desktop\Ambassador\Ambassador-Recruit.com\jobseekers\submitcv.aspx.cs:line 35

when I use smtp.gmail.com

hmm you need to add this line in your config file

 <mailSettings>

<smtp from="myEmailFrom">

<network host="smtp.mydomain.com" password="mypwd" userName="myUserName" defaultCredentials="true"/>

</smtp>

</mailSettings>

I also had to add emailClient.EnableSsl = true; to get gmail to work.



            MailAddress SendFrom = new MailAddress("blah@gmail.com");
            MailAddress SendTo = new MailAddress("blahb;ah@gmail.com");
 
            MailMessage MyMessage = new MailMessage(SendFrom, SendTo);
 
            MyMessage.Subject = "Website CV Submission from " + txtName.Text + " " + txtPosition.Text + " " + txtDivision.Text;
            MyMessage.Body =    "Name: " + txtName.Text + "\n \n" +
                                "Email: " + txtEmail.Text + "\n \n" +
                                "Address: " + txtAddress.Text + "\n \n" +
                                "Contact No: " + txtContact.Text + "\n \n" +
                                "Position: " + txtPosition.Text + "\n \n" +
                                "Division: " + txtDivision.SelectedItem.Text + "\n \n" +
                                "Salary: " + txtSalary.Text + "\n \n" +
                                "Comment: " + txtComment.Text;
 
            Attachment attachFile = new Attachment(txtCV.Text);
            MyMessage.Attachments.Add(attachFile);
 
            SmtpClient emailClient = new SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com");
            emailClient.EnableSsl = true;
            emailClient.Send(MyMessage);
 
 
 
 and to my web.config:
 
    <system.net>
    <mailSettings>
      <smtp from="blahblah@gmail.com">
        <network host="smtp.gmail.com" port="587"
         userName="blahblah@gmail.com" password="blahblah"
         defaultCredentials="false" />
      </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
  </system.net>
