    Sending email directly from a cloud like Windows Azure presents further challenges, because you don’t have a dedicated IP address, and it’s quite likely that spammers will use Windows Azure (if they haven’t already) to send truckloads of spam.  Once that happens, spam blacklists will quickly flag the IP range of Windows Azure data centers as sources of spam. The  way to send an email from an Azure Web App is by using SendGrid. You enable/subscribe to SendGrid via the Market Place by 

    selecting the NEW link on the bottom left of the Azure management portal. Refer to https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/sendgrid-dotnet-how-to-send-email/ for more information about it.


    Best Regards,
