  • Hi,

    this is not related to forgot password it self, you are trying to send an email and you are either not authenticated or doing something wrong other than that.

    usually i get this trying to connect to gmail, so try following this, and i'm sure everything would be fine then

  • There is no way to solve this by just using C# (since you psted your question in the C# forum). You will need to find out which SMTP server you are using, contact the administrators for the right credentials, and then input those credentials into whatever location your program is using to store them (typically the web.config file).
