I have an application that I am going to need to send email from. I have used in the past outlook with CDONTS etc. however it is very messy and usually you have to deal with the security warning issues and use outlook redepemtion etc. to send the emails. I think it is a very messy and performance beast. Has anyone sent email through .Net through exchange or a web service for exchange etc? The client has exchange for their mail server and of course outlook clients connecting to the users mailboxes.
I am trying to find the best solution and also any insight on what things I need to find out like what exchange version, what I will need to setup on the server running the app that is going to send out emails etc. I am going to have SQL Server also where then email addresses exist. I want it to be as seamless as possible and not hold up the app. The app is going to loop and send out multiple emails on an hourly basis.
