One day I hope I can send an Email... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I feel very stupid and have tried everything and spent hours upon hours to send a simple email.  I am using the nice Cortoso sample.  At one time I had "Hotmail" and one day Microsoft automatically converted it to "OUTLOOK".  It doesn't seem to be the full blown OUTLOOK.  I think it might be Microsoft "Live".  In the XML Configuration Code I used the following: 

    (left out the < >? symbols, tried port 587, used correct password.
    I am not sure what "SMPT Server" name should be or how to find it and not sure about port or how to find it 

    add key="SMTPServer"value="smtp.msn.com"
    add key="SMTPPort"value= 25
    add key="SMTPUserID"value= enpiccoli@msn.com
    add key="SMTPPassword"value="pass000#&"

    When I run the enpiccoli@msn.com

  • Hi,

    Do you do it client or serverside?

  • I believe it is the Server side.  The example I am using is the Contoso Construction sample by Beth.  The SMTP information is located in Web.config under Server in the Solutions Explorer.  I run the sample, no errors, in Visual Studio 12 version 3 on my laptop wit Windows 7.  Does this help?  I just never thought sending mail could be so complicated.  I probably am not using the correct domain name and port.  I think now I have spent days trying to figure this out.  Thank you.

  • Hi,

    I'm not understanding what you are trying to do. XML ?

    Sending on insert or what?

    I have done this many times without any problems but using it serverside (automail) or Client side (Outlook automation, only works as OOB).

    Pleace be more specific.

  • Hi Edward,

    Usually you can use your Internet Service Provider's SMTP server if you have email set up with them. They should be able to help you with your SMTP/POP mail account settings.

    You also may want to try these settings for Outlook.com: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/outlook.com-settings-pop3-smtp-imap/
