how to send 2 emails on infopath submit button


When the user hits submit button, I want to send two emails having two different bodies to 2 different users.
I think it can be possible only using custom code.
So, please put me in the right direction

A couple possible methods.

One question is are you going to send the form as an attachment or send a view?

You can create 2 email submit data connections

In the past i have switched to a specific view for email and then switched back.

Not sure if you could do this twice to get the 2 html bodies you want.  I would think by code you could make this happen and the user would only see a bit of flickering.

I want to send the form as a view.
And, actually just for testing i have writtent the following code.
using System.Net.Mail;
public void CTRL28_5_Clicked(object sender, ClickedEventArgs e)
            // Write your code here.
            MailAddress toAddress = new MailAddress("");
            MailAddress fromAddress = new MailAddress("");

            using (MailMessage msg = new MailMessage(fromAddress, toAddress))
               msg.Subject = "New subject";
               msg.Body = "Hello";
               SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("");
               smtp.EnableSsl = true;

Open in new window

But when i try to debug it get a runtime error at smtp.Send(msg);
"The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: 5.5.1 Authentication Required. "
I would not get that complicated. And would try it with the email submit data connections.

I guess you are trying to make it completely invisible to the user, but not sure how you will do that unless you body will be text rather than the view.

It looks like your smtp is not conifugred correctly, either with the right server or the right authentication.  I would test that first.
i started trying with email submit data connections
can i hook up two different email data connections with the same submit button.
but i want to send two different emails to two different users with different messages.
