Hi!

I have an ASP.net website that sends emails to users.

I have this configuration on web.config:

<system.net>
    <mailSettings>
      <smtp from="_______">
        <network host="smtpout.europe.secureserver.net" port="3535" userName="______" password="**********" defaultCredentials="true" />
      </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
</system.net>

Open in new window


In C# I have to set the configurations again:

SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
            smtp.Host = "smtpout.europe.secureserver.net";
            System.Net.NetworkCredential NetworkCred = new System.Net.NetworkCredential();
            NetworkCred.UserName = "_____";
            NetworkCred.Password = "*******";
            smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = true;
            smtp.Credentials = NetworkCred;
            smtp.Port = 3535;

                smtp.Send(MailMessage);

Open in new window


It does works, but I want to set the configuration only in web.config.
How can I use the configurations from web.config ?

Thanks in advance!

You just set it in the <mailSettings> and don't need to reassigned the smtp server values...

See Scott Gu's post: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/12/10/432854.aspx
MailMessage message = new MailMessage();
message.From = new MailAddress("sender@foo.bar.com");
 
message.To.Add(new MailAddress("recipient1@foo.bar.com"));
message.To.Add(new MailAddress("recipient2@foo.bar.com"));
message.To.Add(new MailAddress("recipient3@foo.bar.com"));
 
message.CC.Add(new MailAddress("carboncopy@foo.bar.com"));
message.Subject = "This is my subject";
message.Body = "This is the content";
 
SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient();
client.Send(message);

Thank you for reply!

When I try to send an email without setting the smtp values in C#, I get this error:

Mailbox name not allowed. The server response was: Sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts.

That means the code works fine, but your smtp server is restricting the email address in the To field. You should check that you have permissions on the smtp server.

But why it does works if I set the values in C# and does not if uses the values from web.config?

Thank you!

Try keeping it to the bare minimum. See code:
public string sendEmailContactForm(string email, string name, string sub, string msg1, string msg2)
{
    MailMessage mailToAdmin = new MailMessage();
    mailToAdmin.From = new MailAddress("Portal 123<123@123.info>");
    mailToAdmin.To.Add(new MailAddress("123@123.info"));
    mailToAdmin.Subject =sub;
    mailToAdmin.Body = msg1;
    mailToAdmin.IsBodyHtml = true;

    try
    {
        SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
        smtp.Send(mailToUser);
        smtp.Send(mailToAdmin);
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        return e.Message;
    }
}

Well I can't identify the error. Try debugging and check that the smtpclient object has all necessary values set before the mail is sent.

I didn't find anything wrong during debug, but I have to test again and check a couple things...
