A quick code snippet to send email using VB.Net, works fine in VS 2010.
my_email_address@myEmail.com - this is the email account that will be used to send out email
My_SimplE_PassW@rd - password of the email account that is used to send out the email
my_recipient@Recipient_email.com - the recipient of the email or the person who will receive the email
SmtpServer.Port = 25 – change this port number if the email server blocks port 25
SmtpServer.Host = "mail.my_server_name" – change to the email server name or ask your email administrator
Dim SmtpServer As New SmtpClient()
Dim mail As New MailMessage()
SmtpServer.Credentials = New _
SmtpServer.Port = 25
SmtpServer.Host = "mail.my_server_name"
mail = New MailMessage()
mail.From = New MailAddress("my_email_address@myEmail.com")
mail.Subject = "My Email Subject: "
mail.Body = "write the body of email here - this is my message"
Catch ex As Exception
