Send a message via Yahoo to janla2112
Default Creating E-Mail Messages

HI,
I am trying to use my yahoo mail account to send and receive a message. I wasn't sure how to set this up...I tried enabling the ssl property. Also, the book mentions adding a username and password, but it wasn't clear on where to insert that. I will post the error message here. However, all it is saying is it is timing out and can't connect so I know it had something to do with the code.
I will also post my web.config and Code Behind for the Email file as well.

Thanks,
Jan
