Using gmail inside C# app

by Ronnen

Sending Email from a C# application using Gmail account could not be easier. All It takes is writing few lines of code, and the magic appears, like in many C# implementations.

  • add ‘using System.Net.Mail;’
  • copy the code below (better - wrap it with a function), and change the relevant parameters. (username,password..)

Enjoy !

If you have any comment\improvement – drop me a line at the bottom.


class SendWithGmail { static void Main(string[] args) { MailMessage mail = new MailMessage(); mail.To.Add(""); mail.To.Add(""); mail.From = new MailAddress(""); mail.Subject = "Email using Gmail"; string Body = "Hi, this mail is to test sending mail"; mail.Body = Body; mail.IsBodyHtml = true; SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient(); smtp.Host = ""; smtp.Port = 587; smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential ("", "SourceUserPassword"); smtp.EnableSsl = true; smtp.Send(mail); } }
