Dear experts:

I need to send messages under vb2010 using authenticate mode, I'm trying to do this:

Dim m As New MailMessage
....
m.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate", "1")
m.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername", "username")
m.Fields.Add("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword", "password")
...
but I receive "Fields is not a member of System.net.mail.mailmessage" error.
I'm using vb2010, then, using Framework 4.

Any idea to solve this or to send email with authentication under vb2010?

Thats because it is not a member of System.Net.Mail.Mailmessage.  It is a member of System.Web.Mail.Mailmessage and is obsolete in .NET 4.0.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.mail.mailmessage.aspx

You really want something like this:
Dim Message As MailMessage = New MailMessage()
Dim Smtp As New SmtpClient()

Dim SmtpUser As New System.Net.NetworkCredential()
'-- Build Message
Message.From = New MailAddress("someUsername@myemailserver.com", "Some Username")
Message.To.Add(New MailAddress("someRecipient@theirDomain.com", "Some Recipient"))
Message.IsBodyHtml = False

Message.Subject = "Sending mail is fun."
Message.Body = "Mail sent from application"
'-- Define Authenticated User
SmtpUser.UserName = "someUsername"
SmtpUser.Password = "somePassword"
SmtpUser.Domain = "mail.myemailserver.com"

'-- Send Message
Smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = False
Smtp.Credentials = SmtpUser
Smtp.Host = "mail.mailemailserver.com"
Smtp.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network
Smtp.Send(Message)

Open in new window

HTH,
