Hi All,

I am using the attached mailing script and configured IIS for this domain to use localhost to send email but still get the error:

The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: SMTP authentication is required.

Now I don't know if this error is caused by my code or whether its an IIS settign that I have overklooked.

Could you provide any suggestions?

Thanks,

Rit

WEB.CONFIG
<system.net>
        <mailSettings>
            <smtp deliveryMethod="Network">
                <network host="127.0.0.1" port="25" defaultCredentials="false" />
            </smtp>


EMAIL FUNCTION


public static void SendHTMLMessage(string strEmailTemplate, string strSubject, string strFromAddress, string strFromAlias, string strToAddress)
    {
        SmtpClient mySmtpClient = new SmtpClient();
        MailAddress from = new MailAddress(strFromAddress, strFromAlias);
        MailAddress to = new MailAddress(strToAddress);
        MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, to);
        message.BodyEncoding = Encoding.ASCII;
        message.IsBodyHtml = true;
        message.Subject = strSubject;
        message.Body = strEmailTemplate;
        mySmtpClient.Send(message);
    }

        </mailSettings>
    </system.net>

Hi

From what I understand talking with our hosts, the server has been configured as an SMTP server and it doesn't need to be authenticated as emails can only be sent  from the server.

Refer: http://www.systemwebmail.com/faq/3.8.aspx

SmtpMail.SmptServer = "ipaddress"
SmtpMail.Send(mailmsg);

Hi All,

It turns out that the SMTP server uses port 26 instad of 25!

Thanks for you help anyway.
