Hmm Try this code:

Just change it to use diffrent smtp server...
        Dim message As System.Net.Mail.MailMessage
        Dim smtp As New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com", 587)
 
        smtp.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential("Your gmail username", "password")
        message = New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage("From:", "To:", "Subject", "mail here")
        smtp.EnableSsl = True
        smtp.Send(message)

Last I heard, Hotmail (and I assume Live as well) didn't have a public interface to send email through code. Because it's web-based, you have to go through browser. I'd love to know otherwise.
