protected void btnSendEmail_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


//Create Mail Message Object with content that you want to send with mail.

System.Net.Mail.MailMessage MyMailMessage = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage("","",

"This is the mail subject", "Just wanted to say Hello");

MyMailMessage.IsBodyHtml = false;

//Proper Authentication Details need to be passed when sending email from gmail

System.Net.NetworkCredential mailAuthentication = new

System.Net.NetworkCredential("", "myPassword");

//Smtp Mail server of Gmail is "" and it uses port no. 587

//For different server like yahoo this details changes and you can

//get it from respective server.

System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient mailClient = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("",587);

//Enable SSL

mailClient.EnableSsl = true;

mailClient.UseDefaultCredentials = false;

mailClient.Credentials = mailAuthentication;
