    In a Web Application (ASp.NET/C#) I have to Implement a Mail Sending Utility But I don't have to use SMTP or IIS Web Server & No Outlook will be installed on the Server. Need to confirm from a larger audience about the concept of Sending of a Mail we need a Relay like (SMTP or Outlook), Is there any other way that we can use or write a Control which helps us in Sending the Mails from the Web Server? Like I was looking for MAPI but MAPI also uses SMTP or Outlook.

     without using SMTP you can't send email.
     1. you can use your local IIS server SMTP
     2. you can use thrid party SMTP server like gmail or relay SMTP server provided by web hosting provider

    * You can use System.Net.Mail to send email
    * You can create your own email sending tool using System.Net


     System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient s = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com", 587);
             System.Net.NetworkCredential nc = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("myname", "mypass");
            s.EnableSsl = true;
            s.UseDefaultCredentials = false;
            s.Credentials = nc;
            s.Send("myname@gmail.com", "recepentEmailId@RecepentDomainl.com", "subject", "Email Body");
