ASP.NET version of "Email"

Everyone needs to send email. That's all there is to it.

Well in ASP.NET email is sent a little differently. Most stuff is similar and it's actually still processed by the SMTP Server just like in ASP, but it's no longer CDONTS. Instead you use the MailMessage and SmtpMail objects from the System.Web.Util namespace. This namespace has been through a couple different names so it might change again before release, but this one works with the version we're running. (That was Beta 1... well it changed again to System.Web.Mail in Beta 2!) If it stops working with later releases just check back here. As always, we'll be posting new versions whenever we find a way to improve on the code.

Like I said... they keep changing it... this time it's from the ASP.NET 1.x's System.Web.Mail to ASP.NET 2.0's System.Net.Mail. For the time being your old code will still work, but the classes in the System.Web.Mail namespace have been deprecated so be sure to use System.Net.Mail from now on.

Here's a zip file of the code!

Play with the running version.
