Instead of needing a listener, I could insert a line of code in one function to notify my BlackBerry anytime my program throws an exception. So please provide me the code (or link to the code) so I can have my C# program send an outbound email.

Thanks,

I configured the attached code but the email is not going out. Is doesn not throw an exception but I never get an email.

for txtFrom I am using my working email address.  Is that right or should it be a mail server??
private void SendEmail(MailAddressCollection txtTo, MailAddress txtFrom, string txtSubject, string txtBody)
        {
            var mMailMessage = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage();

            foreach(MailAddress ma in txtTo)
            {
                mMailMessage.To.Add(ma);
            }
            mMailMessage.From = txtFrom;
            mMailMessage.Subject = txtSubject;
            mMailMessage.Body = txtBody;
            mMailMessage.IsBodyHtml = true;
            mMailMessage.Priority = System.Net.Mail.MailPriority.Normal;

            SmtpClient mSmtpClient = new SmtpClient();
            mSmtpClient.Send(mMailMessage);
        }

Unless the machine hosting your app is also a mail server then you need to supply the address/ip of your mail server (and possibly login credentials too)

None. The SmtpClient object is the proxy between your code and your mail server, so it needs the details:
SmtpClient mSmtpClient = new SmtpClient("your mail server", 25);
mSmtpClient.Send(mMailMessage);

Open in new window

If you need to supply credentials to the mail server you need to add the following before sending:
smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("your_username", "your_password");

Oops, that should have said:
mSmtpClient.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("your_username", "your_password");
