send email RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I am trying to send email through the windows wcf service and I wanted to include the email address only in BCC list and not in the "To"
    So when I try to this, my email is not getting send and in the service application log I get this warning message " The parameter 'to' cannot be an empty string.

    Is it possible to include email address only in the BCCList ? Is this possible at the first place ?

    Thank you

  • Yes, you can send emails with address only in BCC List. Below code worked for me (except i concealed the hostname and email addresses)

            Dim mailServerClient As SmtpClient = New SmtpClient
            mailServerClient.Host = "HOSTNAME"
            mailServerClient.Port = 25
            Dim fromAddr As MailAddress = New MailAddress("email@address.com")
            Dim mailMsg As MailMessage = New MailMessage()
            mailMsg.From = fromAddr
            mailMsg.Subject = "test"
