SPUtility.SendEmail - 160005: Bad response from SMTP host RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am using “SPUtility.SendEmail” function to send emails using list item event receiver.

    At times the emails don’t get sent. ” SPUtility.SendEmail” function returns false, no exception.

    Upon inspecting the SharePoint log files, at <program files>\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\LOGS, I got this error message - “#160005: Bad response from SMTP host'xxxx': Client was not authenticated”.

    Any pointers or links would be very much appreciated!
