you can try customize this:

using System.Net.Mail;

//..

public static Boolean sendMail(String SenderName, String SenderEmail, String ReceiverName, String ReceiverEmail, String Subject, String Body, Boolean isHTML, String SMTPHost, int SMTPPort, Boolean isAuthenticationNeeded, String SMTPUserName, String SMTPUserPwd)
        {
            try
            {
                SmtpClient sclient = new SmtpClient(SMTPHost, SMTPPort);
                sclient.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
                if (isAuthenticationNeeded)
                {
                    sclient.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(SMTPUserName, SMTPUserPwd);                    
                }

                MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
                mail.Subject = Subject;
                mail.IsBodyHtml = isHTML;
                mail.Body = Body;
                mail.BodyEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
                if (SenderName == "")
                {
                    mail.From = new MailAddress(SenderEmail);
                }
                else
                {
                    mail.From = new MailAddress(SenderEmail, SenderName);
                }
                mail.SubjectEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
                if (ReceiverName == "")
                {
                    mail.To.Add(ReceiverEmail);
                }
                else
                {
                    mail.To.Add(new MailAddress(ReceiverEmail, ReceiverName));
                }
                sclient.Send(mail);
                return true;
            }
            catch (SmtpException)
            {
                return false;
            }
            catch (Exception)
            {
                return false;
            }      
        }

>>which host i use

basically something like smtp.yourdomain.com or mail.yourdomain.com

You need to check with the Admin or ping the domain to find out..

So now you still not able to send out emails?

If you not able to, when you debugging your scripts, what's the error message you captured from the exception?

Bad sequence of commands. The server response was: This mail server requires authentication when attempting to send to a non-local e-mail address. Please check your mail client settings or contact your administrator to verify that the domain or address is defined for this server.

<system.net>
    <mailSettings>
