Hi

I have a website where I have users that sign up with their email addresses.
Their email address and password is saved in a SQL table.
I want to set up a facility to allow these users to send messages to each other,
kind of like a dating site, but rather to be used to discuss ideas.
What would be the best way to set this up?
Would I use System.Net.Mail?

Email is not an ideal discussion medium but if you're set on using email then yes, System.Net.Mail is how you send email in .NET applications.

An arguably better solution would be to build some sort of chat room application or forum, but with so many ready-built options out there I'm not sure why you would want to spend the time & money to build and maintain one yourself. However, if you absolutely must do that I'd look at using SignalR for real-time message delivery to connected clients.
