Sending Asynchronous emails from Asp.Net Web pages

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hey Guys, Here is my situation and hopefully someone could guide me in the right direction. I have a shared or static class in my website (App_Code folder) which has static methods to send emails asychronoulsy. So whenever there is an exception in any of my pages or classes I call these methods to send an email to support asynchronously. Now when there is an exception in a page, to route that exception asynchronously I need to have Async = "true" for that page. I have more than 50 pages and I don't want to set Async= "true" on every page as I read that it affects performance. So I was wondering if there is any way I could send emails asynchronously without having to set async = "true" on every page. Thanks for your time,   Uday.

ASP.NET 2.0 is replete with new features ranging from declarative data binding and Master Pages to membership and role management services. But my vote for the coolest new feature goes to asynchronous pages, and here's why.

Asynchronous requests in WCF service implementation, any support like ASP.NET asynchronous pages?

What if my WCF service implementation executes some IO operation which may take a while, say 5 seconds.  Ideally I would like to return the thread executing this service request back to the pool to handle other incoming requests while I'm waiting on the IO.  ASP.NET introduced asynchronous pages to address this issue (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc163725.aspx).  This allows for much better resource use and improves the responsiveness of the server.  Does the WCF hosting service allow for something similar? Thanks, Nick

Testing Emails Sending (SMTP) under IIS7 Express (WebMatrix)


Hi there,

I don't have web server account yet so I must test my applications with the Web Development Server under VS 2010 with C# but I read that I couldn't send emails under that server but I also read that I can send email with IIS7 Express and that's the main reason why I've install Webmatrix. Maybe someone can confirm this.

So for the moment I am redirecting my emails into a local folder and it is working perfectly.

Here is part of the code I've add to the Web.Config for doing that.

      <smtp deliveryMethod="SpecifiedPickupDirectory">
        <specifiedPickupDirectory pickupDirectoryLocation="D:\Temp"/>


As you can see I am redirecting the emails to the D:\temp

Sending emails to user from people picker - non-exchange user


Hi all another issue @ hand, our production environment is in co-existence between exchange and domino, mail flow is working fine between them as we do directory sync. now for the juicy part, when sending email notification from sharepoint, it users people picker to pick up users synced from AD. To Exchange users it goes through without issue, but to Domino users it does not, even though the AD account has the email field in account been tabulated. For Domino users we have AD account and Mail contact for mail fow. Can someone help me understand why is it so when even with the email field been tabulated in the AD accoutn for the Domino users, email notification does not go through, but when the email address of the users is hard-coded into the notification the email goes through.

SharePoint custom workflow sending duplicate task assigned emails


I'm running into an issue where a custom sequential workflow I've built in VS2010 is sometimes sending duplicate emails to the user to whom created tasks are assigned. Note: this is a Site workflow not a List workflow, in case that matters.

It's a pretty simple flow: i've got an InfoPath initiation form, and am using an OnWorkflowActivated workflow action to take the data from the form and popluate some workflow variables, then I've got a CreateTask workflow action that sets the AssignedTo value on the Task Properties, along with some other Task Property values.

The task gets created successfully in the task list, and in most cases a single email goes out to the person the task is assigned to. However, sometimes (and I haven't been able to figure out what is causing the difference) up to 3 duplicate messages are sent out, as well.

I've seen other posts in the forums where this sort of thing is happening with OOTB workflows ( this thread, for example: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointworkflow/thread/66f94e07-a690-4166-aaeb-b7f5bc424fe4?prof=required). However, duplicate tasks are not being created (unless I'm missing the duplicates somehow -- they're not showing in the task li

using asynchronous pages to perform asynchronous data binding


hi all,
I have a question about using asynchronous pages to perform asynchronous data binding. I searched google and found this sample code here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc163725.aspx
("Wicked Code: Asynchronous Pages in ...")

public partial class AsyncDataBind : System.Web.UI.Page
    private SqlConnection _connection;
    private SqlCommand _command;
    private SqlDataReader _reader;

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!IsPostBack)
            // Hook PreRenderComplete event for data binding
            this.PreRenderComplete +=
                new EventHandler(Page_PreRenderComplete);

            // Register async methods

jQuery $(document).ready() and ASP.NET Ajax asynchronous postback

Many call it the ASP.NET jQuery postback problem, but using the technique below should make it no problem anymore. $(document).ready() isn't called after an asynchronous postback. What this means? You lose the functionality that should be executed within $(document).ready() after an UpdatePanel rendered its contents after an asynchronous postback.
