C# code snippet for sending email using .NET

Forget MAPI, SMTP and POP3 protocols and the complexity they bring with them. .NET wraps all those functionality and makes programming fun again.


using System.Web.Mail;
.
.

SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "your-smtp-server.com";

MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();

mail.From = "from@email.com";
mail.To = "recepient@email.com";
mail.Subject = "Mail Subject";
mail.Body = "Sending a mail using .NET is only few lines of code.";
mail.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Html;


//Optional Attachment

MailAttachment att = new MailAttachment("c:\\temp\\attachment.doc");
mail.Attachments.Add(att);

//Your mail is on the way
SmtpMail.Send(mail);

Travelling to Bangalore next week.

I will be travelling to Bangalore for a long deserved vacation. I will be vacationing in Bangalore for 3 weeks. I will keep this blog updated with my take on Bangalore. I will also be posting some pictures from by Bangalore trip.

Well, its not really a vacation as Bangalore my city of birth. But being away from Bangalore for many years, it sure feels like a vacation.
