Hi Imar,

My contact page and sending email was fine until I've changed the code as in Chapter 19. I followed the instructions carefully and keep getting this error:
"The specified string is not in the form required for an e-mail address"

The code in web.config:
Code:
<configuration>
  
  <appSettings>
    <add key="FromAddress" value="info@eleganceaccounting.com" />
    <add key="FromName" value="Elegance Accounting" />
    <add key="ToAddress" value="info@eleganceaccounting.com" />
    <add key="ToName" value="Elegance Accounting" />
    <add key="SendMailOnError" value="false" />
  </appSettings>
  <system.web>
    <pages theme="Yellow"></pages>
    <compilation debug="true" strict="false" explicit="true" targetFramework="4.0">
      <assemblies>
        <add assembly="System.Web.Extensions.Design, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>
        <add assembly="System.Design, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B03F5F7F11D50A3A"/>
        <add assembly="System.Windows.Forms, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B77A5C561934E089"/>
      </assemblies>
    </compilation>
  </system.web>
  <system.net>
    <mailSettings>
      <smtp deliveryMethod="SpecifiedPickupDirectory" from="Elegance Accounting &lt;info@eleganceaccounting.com&gt;">
        <specifiedPickupDirectory pickupDirectoryLocation="C:\TempMail" />
        <network host="smtp.eleganceaccounting.com"/>
      </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
  </system.net>
</configuration>
The code in AppConfiguration.vb
Code:
Public Class AppConfiguration
  Public Shared ReadOnly Property FromAddress() As String
    Get
      Dim result As String =
      WebConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("FromAddress")
      If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(result) Then
        Return result
      End If
      Throw New Exception("AppSetting FromAddress not found in web.config file.")
    End Get
  End Property

  Public Shared ReadOnly Property FromName() As String
    Get
      Dim result As String =
      WebConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("FromName")
      If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(result) Then
        Return result
      End If
      Throw New Exception("AppSetting FromName not found in web.config file.")
    End Get
  End Property

  Public Shared ReadOnly Property ToAddress() As String
    Get
      Dim result As String =
      WebConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("ToAddress")
      If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(result) Then
        Return result
      End If
      Throw New Exception("AppSetting ToAddress not found in web.config file.")
    End Get
  End Property

  Public Shared ReadOnly Property ToName() As String
    Get
      Dim result As String =
      WebConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("ToName")
      If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(result) Then
        Return result
      End If
      Throw New Exception("AppSetting ToName not found in web.config file.")
    End Get
  End Property

  Public Shared ReadOnly Property SendMailOnError() As Boolean
    Get
      Dim result As String =
      WebConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("SendMailOnError")
      If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(result) Then
        Return Convert.ToBoolean(result)
      End If
      Throw New Exception("AppSetting SendMailOnError not found in web.config file.")
    End Get
  End Property
End Class
The code in ContactForm.ascx.vb:
Code:
Imports System.IO

  Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

      System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(5000)
    End If
  End Sub
End Class
Please help

Hi there,

Take a look at this:

Quote:
myMessage.From = New MailAddress("AppConfiguration.FromAddress, AppConfiguration.FromName")
myMessage.To.Add(New MailAddress("AppConfiguration.ToAddress, AppConfiguration.ToName"))
You're passing a literal string to the MailAddress constructor. Remove the four double quotes and it should work.

Cheers,

Imar
