Following Coding Run successfully. Any Body want send a mail Via VB.net. You can use this code.


Send Email with Gmail

This sample base on vb.net 2005.

There are two step to create this.

1. You must insert mailSettings tag in app.config for window application or insert in web.config for web application.

2. Use System.Net.Mail namespace.

Sample Code for window application.
1. Insert this tag in app.config (Config Google SMTP).

<system.net >
<mailSettings >
<smtp from ="Test@Test">
<network host ="smtp.gmail.com" port ="587" password ="your Password" userName ="Your Mail Id"/>
</smtp>
</mailSettings>
</system.net>


2. Use System.Net.Mail namespace.


Imports System.Net.Mail


Dim client As New SmtpClient()

Dim sendTo As New MailAddress("sendToAccount@gmail.com")
Dim from As MailAddress = New MailAddress("from@address.com")
Dim message As New MailMessage(from, sendTo)


message.IsBodyHtml = True
message.Subject = "HI"
message.Body = "Type Your Msg.!!"
'multipleattach()
' Use the same account in app.config to authenticate.
System.Net.NetworkCredential("yourAccount@gmail.com", "YourPassword")


client.Host = "smtp.gmail.com"
client.UseDefaultCredentials = False
client.Credentials = basicAuthenticationInfo
client.EnableSsl = True

Try

client.Send(message)
MsgBox("SUCCESS")

Catch ex As Exception

MsgBox("SEND FAIL")
End Try

All The Best
