I am trying to test sending an email from my web app that I developed in Visual Studio 2010. I am testing the application on my "local" server in which I have premission to send emails to our email server. When I click the submit button the button highlights but no email is sent. It is if no click event had occured.
Code:
 protected void btnSend_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
                        try
            {


                mail.From = new MailAddress("myname@domain.net");
                mail.To.Add("myname@domainname.net");                      // put To: address here
                mail.Subject = "IT Account Request Form";            // put subject here      
                mail.Body = TextBox9.Text;                          // put body of email here

                // put smtp server you will use here
                SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
                smtp.Host = "ip address for email server";
                smtp.Port = 25;
                smtp.Send(mail);

                Label1.Text = "Your message was successfully sent.";
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Label1.Text = "An error occurred sending your e-mail, the error is:\r\n" + ex.Message;
            }
        }

is there a change in the lable1 text. put a break point on line with try statement and check where the process is exiting and if there is a error message post the same. check your mail server port number, check if user name password are required for your SMTP server.

I was able to and the user name to the company's domain name by simply adding a + infront of the domain name i.e.  userName+"domain.net". That then sent the user name plus the company domain name in my email.
Thanks
