Hi
I use the VB.net code further down to send emails in my ASP.net web application.
I put the following in the web.config file. I want to now use this code to send mails
from Windows Forms app but there is obviously no web.config file. How do I set this
up in my Windows forms app

  <!-- Email **** Add the email settings to the <system.net> element -->
  <system.net>
    <mailSettings>
      <smtp from="info@online-excel.com">
        <network host="41xx" port="25" userName="info@online-excel.com" password="x"/>

      </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
  </system.net>
  <!-- Email **** Add the email settings to the <system.net> element -->

                    Dim sBody As String = oBuild_Email_Body_From_Query() & "<br />" & oBuild_Email_Body_From_Query2()
                    Dim objScheduleMail As New clsScheduleMail()
                    objScheduleMail.oSendScheduleMail("info@online-excel.com", "info@online-excel.com", "murbro9@yahoo.com", "", "GREAT Entries", sBody)

Imports System.Net.Mail

Public Class clsScheduleMail

    Public Function oSendScheduleMail(ByVal from As String, ByVal recepient As String, ByVal bcc As String, ByVal cc As String, ByVal subject As String, ByVal body As String) As String
        Try

            ' Instantiate a new instance of MailMessage
            Dim mMailMessage As New MailMessage()

            ' Set the sender address of the mail message
            mMailMessage.From = New MailAddress(from)
            ' Set the recepient address of the mail message
            mMailMessage.To.Add(New MailAddress(recepient))

            ' Check if the bcc value is nothing or an empty string
            If Not bcc Is Nothing And bcc <> String.Empty Then
                ' Set the Bcc address of the mail message
                mMailMessage.Bcc.Add(New MailAddress(bcc))
            End If

            ' Check if the cc value is nothing or an empty value
            If Not cc Is Nothing And cc <> String.Empty Then
                ' Set the CC address of the mail message
                mMailMessage.CC.Add(New MailAddress(cc))
            End If

            ' Set the subject of the mail message
            mMailMessage.Subject = subject
            ' Set the body of the mail message
            mMailMessage.Body = body

            ' Set the format of the mail message body as HTML
            mMailMessage.IsBodyHtml = True
            ' Set the priority of the mail message to normal
            mMailMessage.Priority = MailPriority.Normal

            ' Instantiate a new instance of SmtpClient
            Dim mSmtpClient As New SmtpClient()
            ' Send the mail message
            mSmtpClient.Send(mMailMessage)

            oSendScheduleMail = "Mail Sent"
        Catch ex As Exception
            oSendScheduleMail = ex.Message
        End Try
    End Function

End Class

Don't put settings in config file and change following line

Dim mMailMessage As New MailMessage()

to

Dim mMailMessage As New MailMessage(From, Recipient)
