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

Hi Jan,

A couple of things...

First of all, can you please post book related messages in its own forum located here: http://p2p.wrox.com/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=386
That way, I won't overlook them, and other readers will find it easier to find answers to questions they may have,

Secondly, configuring security for your mail server is discussed on page 308 and onwards. You'll see how to add the user name and password in the web.config file.

Finally, are you sure Yahoo allows you to use their mail server like this?

BTW: you may want to edit your message and get rid of your e-mail addresses.

Hope this helps,

Imar

HI Imar,
Thanks for the heads up on the e-mail. Bonehead mistake. That was I wasn't sure about. Do you know if sbcglobal allows you to do it either as I think they were swallowed by yahoo as well. Otherwise, I am dead in the water.

Thanks,
Jan

I don't know as I don't know sbcglobal.

But they'll probably have FAQs or a helpdesk that can answer this?
