I'm working in this project that has a feedback form and in this feedback form there is only body, so it doesn't ask for subject and who it's from. And all the messages send from will go to a custom mail account, for example Example@custom.com How can I do this in the simplest way, without need of outlook and I'm using net framework 4 windows form applications.

Look for details on the System::Net::Mail::SmtpClient class. It's dead easy to send email with .NET.

I done a search on google for so long but every one does it on win32 and the ones does in on .net have the subject and to and ask you to enter your details which is not what i want. Any codes you could help me with? or tutorials or websites has what im looking for

To see why I don't believe that sorry excuse, click here. That page took me all of 5 seconds to find, and it has a full working program in C++/CLI.

Compiles and runs fine, there is nothing wrong with it!

This is the example code from the link that Narue directed you to in your other thread isn't it?

Exactly what problems are you having?

I'm getting stupid errors. When you click the button this message should be sent I'm sure i placed everything in the right place, i get no errors compile with

#using <System.dll>
using namespace System;
using namespace System::Net;
using namespace System::Net::Mail;
using namespace System::Net::Mime;
using namespace System::Threading;
using namespace System::ComponentModel;

However i place the rest on the code on the button click event i think that's where i went wrong and where should i place it

some of the errors came up twice I just put it once. But I'm definitely sure it's about where i placed the code

#pragma endregion
	private: System::Void button1_Click(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
				

				 static bool mailSent;

					 {
						 Console::WriteLine("[{0}] {1}", token, 
							 e->Error->ToString());
					 } else
					 {
						 Console::WriteLine("Message sent.");
					 }
					 mailSent = true;
				 }

				 int main(array<String^>^ args)
				 {
					 if (args->Length > 1)
					 {
						 // Command line argument must the the SMTP host.
						 SmtpClient^ client = gcnew SmtpClient(args[1]);

						 Console::WriteLine("Please give SMTP server name!");

				 }

	};
}

And that's how i placed the code. Other part is in the right place at the very top

I'd suggest learning C++/CLI. You clearly don't realize that functions can't be nested, which means you lack critical prerequisite knowledge to write this program. When I said emailing in .NET was easy, that was assuming you actually know how to write basic C++/CLI code.

Just tell me how to solve this I will start improving my knowledge, i just moved on from visual basic. So how do i solve this.

#using<System.dll> statement doesnot work with rad studio XE, says "unknown preprocessor directive" what should i do? i would like to know how to link dlls in rad studio xe
