    Unhappy Sending Email - Using System.Net.Mail

    I am new to CP and wondered if anyone can help me with this issue:
    - building windows application
    - using .NET 2005 (Framework 2.0)

    I am trying to send emails using .Net.Mail but the problem I have is that the emails do not actually send until I exit the application!

    I have tried everything I can think of including running this code on its own thread and changing the delivery method but nothing seems to work.

    I cannot believe that such a simple thing as sending an email could possible be so damn difficult and frustrating - thanks to Microfault.

    Code:
                SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("mysmtpserver");
                // smtp.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.PickupDirectoryFromIis;
                MailMessage mm = new MailMessage();
                mm.IsBodyHtml = true;
                mm.From = new MailAddress("admin@trilogyrecruit.com");
                mm.ReplyTo = new MailAddress("support@trilogyrecruit.com");
                mm.To.Add(new MailAddress("support@trilogyrecruit.com"));
                mm.Body = "<HTML><BODY>Message Body</BODY></HTML>";
                mm.Subject = "Message Subject";
                smtp.Send(mm);
                mm.Dispose();
                mm = null;
                smtp = null;
    Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on this for me.

    LOL. Obviously you have not worked with SMTP before.... No, Email should be eaaaaaaaasy.

    Anyway, from the documents I'm reading, what you're doing should be working.

    Is the Send() method blocking like it should?
