The examples on Brinkster’s support pages are hit and miss, and they’re in VB.
static void SendMessage(string email, string messageBody)
var from = "email@example.com";
var credentials = new NetworkCredential(from, "password");
var message = new MailMessage()
From = new MailAddress(from),
Subject = "Subject",
Body = messageBody,
IsBodyHtml = true
var mailClient = new SmtpClient("mymail.brinkster.com", 2525)
DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network,
UseDefaultCredentials = false,
Credentials = credentials
Things to note:
- The from address must be the same email used to authenticate.
- Port 25 is the standard, but if this doesn’t work (it didn’t for me,) try port 2525.
