Sent e-mail from ASP.NET site using GMail’s SMTP server

Here’s a class I’ve used in the past:

namespace MyApp
{
    public class GMailer
    {
        public static string GmailUsername { get; set; }
        public static string GmailPassword { get; set; }
        public static string GmailHost { get; set; }
        public static int GmailPort { get; set; }
        public static bool GmailSSL { get; set; }

        public string ToEmail { get; set; }
        public string Subject { get; set; }
        public string Body { get; set; }
        public bool IsHtml { get; set; }

        static GMailer()
        {
            GmailHost = "smtp.gmail.com";
            GmailPort = 25; // Gmail can use ports 25, 465 & 587; but must be 25 for medium trust environment.
            GmailSSL = true;
        }

        public void Send()
        {
            SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
            smtp.Host = GmailHost;
            smtp.Port = GmailPort;
            smtp.EnableSsl = GmailSSL;
            smtp.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
            smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = false;
            smtp.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(GmailUsername, GmailPassword);

            using (var message = new MailMessage(GmailUsername, ToEmail))
            {
                message.Subject = Subject;
                message.Body = Body;
                message.IsBodyHtml = IsHtml;
                smtp.Send(message);
            }
        }
    }
}



The class needs to be configured in your Application_Start event:

GMailer.GmailUsername = "you@gmail.com";
GMailer.GmailPassword = "password";

Usage:

GMailer mailer = new GMailer();
mailer.ToEmail = "someone@somewhere.com";
mailer.Subject = "Email Subject Line";
mailer.Body = "This is a test message";
mailer.IsHtml = false;
mailer.Send();
