Hi

I am trying to create a forgot password section within my login section and it doesnt seem to work.

In my forgotpassword.aspx page my code looks like this:

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">
    <asp:PasswordRecovery ID="PasswordRecovery1" runat="server" Height="224px" 
        Width="295px"
        SubmitButtonText="Get Password" SubmitButtonType="Link">
  <MailDefinition From="soccervillage@yahoo.com" 
    Subject="Your new password"
    BodyFileName="PasswordRecovery.txt" />
    </asp:PasswordRecovery>
    
</asp:Content>

In my webconfig page the code looks like this:

<system.net>
  <mailSettings>
   <smtp from="soccervillage@yahoo.com">
    <network host="localhost" password="password" userName="username" />
   </smtp>
  </mailSettings>
 </system.net>

I then have created a text file which is called PasswordRecovery.txt and looks like this:

Your password has been reset, <%UserName%>!

According to our records, you have requested that your password be reset. Your new
password is: <%Password%>

If you have any questions or trouble logging on please contact a site administrator.

Thank you!

The error which I am receiving is:

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it ::1:25
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it ::1:25

Could anyone help me in this situation?


Thanks

Since your mailbox is hosted on Yahoo! you need to use their host address, instead of localhost. Here you will get the SMTP settings of all popular email service providers.

For Yahoo, the host is: smtp.mail.yahoo.com

However the email I have just made up, does the email have to exist?

Actually I do not have a yahoo email, I have a hotmail. If I am not allowed to make up the email, what should I use for hotmail host?

web.Configu cant send email from localhost

<system.net>
<mailSettings>
<smtp deliveryMethod="Network" from="email Address">
<network host="mail server" userName="" password="" <em><strong>port="25"</strong></em> />
</smtp>
</mailSettings>
</system.net>

In the below code replace YourPassword with your actual password.

<system.net>
	<mailSettings>
		<smtp from="faisal_business@hotmail.co.uk">
			<network host="smtp.live.com" port="25" userName="faisal_business@hotmail.co.uk" password="YourPassword" defaultCredentials="true"/>
		</smtp>
	</mailSettings>
</system.net>

Note: If port 25 has been blocked in your network or by your ISP, you can set SMTP port to 587 with TLS or SSL Encryption depending on the client in use

If you look at your smtp settings on the screen shot, it shows the server name, from. And the authentication states the username and password whereas your code which you have provided me with shows something else. Below is the code you provided me with. Could you explain?

<system.net>
<mailSettings>
<smtp deliveryMethod="Network" from="email Address">
<network host="mail server" userName="" password="" port="25" />
</smtp>
</mailSettings>
</system.net>

ok

network host is same as server name, usually it's your domain name.
user name and password is for access your mail.
from, is your email address that you sending mail from it.

now i have a question,
are you try to sending mail from local machine?

Knvn - No i did not try using that port, should I try that?

That means the computer asked for the IP-address of smtp.yourdomain.xxx at your configurated DNS server and this returned it couldn't find an IP-address for smtp.yourdomain.xxx

So question is: is smtp.yourdomain.xxx a valid address?

Is there a DNS server configured at the computer and has this DNS server a valid DNS entry for smtp.yourdomain.xxx

Stack Trace:

Some ISP's do block the port 25. This might be the cause for above exception. Just try with the port 587.

Also, try by specifying the below hosts:
64.4.59.173
65.55.37.62
