  • Your code looks correct. What error messages or exceptions do you get?


    You should be getting some exception at "my_wholeMessage.Send(message)". Most likely, you do not have a SMTP service running. You might also want to check up on your firewall settings and make sure port 25 is unblocked.

  • You may check whether these settings are applied in your machine.

  • Is this a problem sending all emails or ones with attachments? It's a little difficult to help without knowing what error you are getting.

    You are probably going to have problems if you have attachments because of this section:

             Dim attached As New Attachment(Trim(upload_file.PostedFile.FileName.ToString))

    You need to save the attachement to disk first. Simply attaching a file by name won't work in this context, because that is simply the name of the file from the client.
