Hi guys ,

I have some issue to send email after I implemented this code

            MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
            mail.To.Add("dataprocessing@althompson.com");
            mail.From = new MailAddress("systeminfo@althompson.com");
            mail.Subject = em.Subject;
            string Body = em.Body;
            mail.Body = Body;
            mail.IsBodyHtml = true;
            SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
            smtp.Host = "172.16.1.6";
            smtp.Port = 587;
            smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = false;
            smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("example@domain.com", "password");
            smtp.EnableSsl = true;
            smtp.Send(mail);
            return View();

Open in new window


the issue is in my credential
 smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("example@domain.com", "password");
actually in my case exchange server I have to type credential in this way below:

 smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("domain\example", "password");

when I type this way I get some error - unrecogniz escape sequence.


I need to know how can I type my user like domain\example without getting this error.

To fix that:
 smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("domain\\example", "password");

You need 2 backslashes to = 1 backslash.  the \ by itself is an escape character, meaning put the next literal in.
