Visual Studio Sending Emails in vb.net RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi team

    I have a Windows Classic app that will sent out emails just fine.

    When I install this App a different computer on the same Wireless Network it will not work.

    It looks like  it can not see the Smtp.Client through the network.

    Strange that it works on one computer and not on different one on the same network.

    Is there a outgoing port problem I need to set.

    Regards

    Ron Blakemore

  • The description you provide didn't allow to determine the problem you facing.

    At least three option to check:

    - firewall

    - authentication

    - server permission for station to send e-mail.

  • One thing to try if you have not is;

    • Wrap the Send method in a try-catch, if there is an exception report back here.
    • Subscribe to SendCompled see this page and write this for the error else of the if statement.

    If the issue is a port problem it will be learned from one of the above. 

    I don't have any vb.net code samples to assist but you might check out my C# article on this topic.
