Sign up a email account with c#?


  • Hi everyone.
    I've seen a lot of topics related to sending mails from c# but does anyone know how to create a mail account with c# before sending the mail?

  • You don't need to create an account in order to send an e-mail to somebody. You might need to specify From address, but this can be virtually any address (SMTP doesn't validate them).

  • Yes I know but I really need to create an account. Sending e-mails isn't important and i think that its easy. My first goal is to create an email account  by a desktop app or even a c# website with given information about the user but i can not found helpful information.

  • Creation of user accounts is specific to each server, usually requires admin rights and can not be done remotely. Due to this your need doesn't make much sense.

  • GMail and Hotmail/Live/MSN mail accounts are made via HTTP, thus you can make a parser that creates accounts.

    But, just me, it rather sounds like a spam-account-creating system...

  • I'd say "GMail ... offer web interface for human registration on their servers" which is not exactly "creating an e-mail account". But I agree with your point, that with enough inspiration and time it might be possible to automate registration on those servers.
