Sending mail using mailkit RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone.

    I've trying to send email using C# console application with NET core 2.1 and using Mailkit.

    Here is my code:

    using System;
    using MailKit.Net.Smtp;
    using MimeKit;
    namespace mailkit_core
        class Program
            static void Main(string[] args)
                    //From Address
                    string FromAddress = "[Email from]@gmail.com";
                    string FromAdressTitle = "Email from";
                    //To Address
                    string ToAddress = "[mail_to]@gmail.com";
                    string ToAdressTitle = "mail to";
                    string Subject = "title";
                    string BodyContent = "body";
                    //Smtp Server
                    string SmtpServer = "smtp.gmail.com";
                    //Smtp Port Number
                    int SmtpPortNumber = 587;
                    var mimeMessage = new MimeMessage();
                    mimeMessage.From.Add(new MailboxAddress(FromAdressTitle, FromAddress));
                    mimeMessage.To.Add(new MailboxAddress(ToAdressTitle, ToAddress));
                    mimeMessage.Subject = Subject;
                    mimeMessage.Body = new TextPart("plain")
                        Text = BodyContent
                    using (var client = new SmtpClient())
                        Console.WriteLine("connection initiated");
                        client.Connect(SmtpServer, SmtpPortNumber, false);
                        Console.WriteLine("connection succeded");
                        client.Authenticate("[msil_from]@gmail.com", "[pass]");
                        Console.WriteLine("start sending");
                        Console.WriteLine("The mail has been sent successfully !!");
                catch (Exception ex)
                    throw ex;

    However, I can't connect to smtp server. What can be an issue? 

    I enabled connection of not trusted applications in google account.
