Introduction:
In my previous article I have explained about  How to bind/Unbind events in jQuery. In this article I am going to explain about how to send mail from ASP.Net using gmail,yahoomail and live mail credentials.

Explanation:
First Include the below namespaces in your code behind file.

using System;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Mail;

The System.Net namespace provides a simple programming interface for many of the protocols used on networks

The System.Net.Mail namespace contains classes used to send electronic mail to a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server for delivery

Below is the code to send the mail using your gmail credentials

public void SendMail(string fromMailId,string fromMailPassword,string toMailId,string subject,string body)
{
    try
    {
        NetworkCredential myCredentials = new NetworkCredential(fromMailId,    fromMailPassword);
        MailMessage mailmsg = new MailMessage();
        mailmsg.To.Add(toMailId);
        mailmsg.From = new MailAddress(fromMailId);
        mailmsg.Subject = subject;
        mailmsg.Body = body;
        SmtpClient objclient = new SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com", 25);
        objclient.EnableSsl = true;
        objclient.Credentials = myCredentials;
        objclient.Send(mailmsg);
    }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {
        Response.Write(ex.Message);
    }
}
To call the above method

SendMail("yourmailid@gmail.com", "password", "tomail@domain.com", "your subject", "your message");

Other options:

To add CC:
mailmsg.CC.Add("ccmail@domain.com");

To add BCC:
mailmsg.Bcc.Add("bccmail@domain.com");

If the message is in html format then set IsBodyHtml to true.
mailmsg.IsBodyHtml = true;

To send the attachments
string file = "attachment.pdf";
Attachment data = new Attachment(file);
mailmsg.Attachments.Add(data);

You can add multiple email ids separated by comma( , ).

To send mail using yahoo account change the hostname and Enablessl property as below.
SmtpClient objclient = new SmtpClient("smtp.mail.yahoo.com", 25);
objclient.EnableSsl = false;

To send mail using Live mail account
SmtpClient objclient = new SmtpClient("smtp.live.com", 25);
