Hi

I am using the following code to send an email

But I am getting runtime error

Can you please tell me the reason
MailMessage message = new MailMessage();

        message.From = new MailAddress("sender@domain.com");

        message.To.Add(new MailAddress(MailTo));

        message.Subject = Subject;

        message.Body = Body.ToString();

        

        SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("localhost");                       

        client.EnableSsl = true;

        client.Send(message);

Open in new window

Is the machine you are running the code on (localhost) an SMTP server?

No

I think we are using the the SMTP service in services.msc to send an email

message.From.Add(new MailAddress("sender@domain.com"));
        message.To.Add(new MailAddress(MailTo));


also try hard coded values

client.Send("to","Form","subject","body");

Does your Outlook go to localhost as well? If not, the copy the server address that Outlook is using into your

    SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("server_name_here");

line.
