    We are using asp.net Identity 2.0.

    When send the user a password reset link in an email, is it necessary to use SSL enabled email? 

    Is it still secure without using SSL email?

    Hi MinglongC,

    If SMTP server you are connecting is required SSL, you must enable it.

    The default value for SmtpClient.EnableSsl Property  is false. The EnableSsl property specifies whether SSL is used to access the specified SMTP mail server.

    Specify whether the SmtpClient uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt the connection.

    For more details, read the Remarks section of the docs on MSDN.

    Best Regards,
