Hello all,

Im using the attached code code to send an email.

Please notice the line

Dim addrFrom As New System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("noreply@mywebsite.com")

It looks really bad when receiving a message from "noreply@mywebsite.com". My question is, how can I do for the user to receive the message from noreply@mywebsite.com but see something like "Mywebsite Support" as the name of the sender?

Thanks!
Dim msg As New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage
Dim smtp As New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient
Dim addrFrom As New System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("noreply@mywebsite.com")
msg.From = addrFrom
msg.To.Add(RS(6))
msg.Subject = "New Appointment Request"
msg.Body = email
smtp.Host = "xx.xx.xx.xx"
smtp.Port = 25
smtp.DeliveryMethod = Net.Mail.SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network
smtp.Send(msg)
smtp.Dispose()

rather than spoofing the from address, which will be picked up by some email hosts (which happened to me when writing an asp email system), try using the reply to option instead.
