    What does "not working" mean?  Did you receive an error?  Should we assume you have a gmail login as hotmail is not going to work.   Did the code execute but the email did not arrive?  Have you tried checking your gmail account for any security warnings?  Did you enable less secure applications in your gmail account?


    What troubleshooting steps have you performed?

    You are using a hotmail account with a gmail server. They need match. Either use a hotmail server, or gmail account.

    Use the Visual Studio debugger to troubleshoot your code.  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/debugger/debugger-feature-tour?view=vs-2019

    Be aware that sending email is very common and the SmtpClient works fine.  Usually problems are misconfiguration and security.  Configuration comes form the SMTP service you are trying to use.  You must read the documentation for the SMTP service you are using.   Security requires you login to your SMTP service and set any necessary configuration.  Gmail has "enable less secure apps".
