how can i configure asp.net 3.5 to use a hotmail account for sending mails

i want to configure my web.config that i can send email though a hotmail acount.
I get the following error message:
[SmtpException: Für den SMTP-Server ist eine sichere Verbindung erforderlich, oder der Client wurde nicht authentifiziert. Die Serverantwort war: 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first]
which means: a secure connection is required for SMTP-Server

there is no feature to select secure connection in WEB/ASP.NET-Configuration

here is how you access the webconfig mailsettings programatically:
Dim webConfigFile As System.Configuration.Configuration = WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration("~/web.config")4            
 
Dim mailSettings As MailSettingsSectionGroup = webConfigFile.GetSectionGroup("system.net/mailSettings")

Open in new window

I know, how to send mail programmaticly.

I look for a way to modify the web.config that I can send with the web.config settings.

Is there a seeting for the <mailSettings> node for ssl specification and the port?

why don't you just use a key for each then... and then call that using the AppSettings("keyname")... that way your addresses and ports are all in the web config and you just call them in the code... make a change of address in the key in the web config and they all use the new ports and addresses.
