Hi Fred,

But if I try to just write to my c drive why would I need schemas. I cannot even write to my c drive.
You don't need schemas to make this work. However, you do need to create the folder c:\maildrop up front as explained in the book. Can you confirm the folder exists?

If I create that folder and then use your code as-is, I get a message in the maildrop folder.

For Gmail, you also need to specify a portnumber. Something like this will probably work:

<network enableSsl="true" host="" password="YourPassword"
userName="" port="587" />

If it still doesn't work, make sure you don't have Anti Virus software or other software blocking the outgoing mail.

If you still can't make it work, please post the error message you're seeing.



BTW: you may want to remove your Gmail password in the post, and change the From address in your web.config so I don't have to deal with your bounce messages.... ;-)
