Hi,

I have a winforms application.
I am trapping some exceptions and want to mail those exceptions to my email fro ma winforms application.
I know that there is a System.net.mail to send the emails.

MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
System.Net.Mail.
SmtpClient SmtpServer = new SmtpClient( ServerName );
SmtpServer.Port = port;
SmtpServer.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential( login, pwd );
SmtpServer.EnableSsl = useSSL;

mail.From = new MailAddress( FromAddress, HeaderFromAddress );
mail.To.Add( ToAddress );
mail.Subject = Subject;
mail.Body = Data;

SmtpServer.Send( mail );

Hi junges thanks for the reply.
I am new and not familiar with smtp.
How will i get the smtp information?
And our clients are located across USA. So , if i provide the smtp information of our smtp server wuld that be good?
Or does it change for each client?

SmtpClient  same as smtp host?
can i get teh smtpinformation by issuing a command?
Thanks

yes, you can get the smtp settings from your email client and pass them here.
obs.: if you want to use gmail acount then you must first activate pop3 on the preference from gmail account.

Please review my Logger based on the log4net library it allows to send emails on fails. There is samle WinForms application, that shows how to use it. Logger is configured in the Program class and called in the Form1. Pay attention to the app.config where Loggers configurations.
In the LoggerNet project you can find ServerMail class that sends emails using specific credentials
