I'm trying to send email from my asp.net page, but keep receiving the same error:

The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: 5.5.1 Authentication Required. Learn more at 

Open in new window



Below is the code in button to send the message:

using System.Net.Mail;

Open in new window


MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
        mail.From = new MailAddress("myname@gmail.com");
        mail.To.Add("recientEmail@gmail.com");
        mail.IsBodyHtml = true;
        mail.Subject = "Email Sent";
        mail.Body = "Body content from";

        SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
        smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("myname@gmail.com", "mypassword", "smtp.gmail.com");
        smtp.Host = "smtp.gmail.com";
        smtp.Port = 587;
        smtp.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
        smtp.EnableSsl = true;
        smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = false;
        smtp.Send(mail);

465 is the SSL port (your mentioned port uses TLS)

okay return to 587 please. Now try again, but with

 smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = false;

Strange. I only made minor changes. But just to be sure, can you use this code instead:

            MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
            mail.From = new MailAddress("xx@gmail.com");
            mail.Sender = new MailAddress("xx@gmail.com");
            mail.To.Add("external@emailaddress");
            mail.IsBodyHtml = true;
            mail.Subject = "Email Sent";
            mail.Body = "Body content from";

            SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com", 587);
            smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = false;

            smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("xx@gmail.com", "xx");
            smtp.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
            smtp.EnableSsl = true;
            
            smtp.Timeout = 30000;
            try
            {

                smtp.Send(mail);
            }
            catch (SmtpException e)
            {
                textBox1.Text= e.Message;
            }

Thank You!  I don't know whet the difference was but it worked.  Your code had a "sender"  and the credentials where configured different.
