and the reason is u got the worksererror is permissions to access that directory..

While ur debugging i guess u have  administrator previligies.. but on product system ur app is running with networkservice account.. give network service account read and write permissions to inetpub\mailroot directory..

Set the pickup location

MailObj.PickupDirectoryLocation = "\\Isasrv\PickUp2"
MailObj.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.SpecifiedPickupDirectory
