Purpose is that the user needs to click the link in his email to activate the account.

But my emailbody with the link is just shown as plain-Non clickabel text.

the body text looks like:

string mailBody = "please click the following link to activate your account:<br>

string mailBody = "please click the following link to activate your account:<br>" +
I use the follwing code
System.Net.Mail.AlternateView plainView = System.Net.Mail.AlternateView.CreateAlternateViewFromString(System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(BodyText, @"<(.|\n)*?>", string.Empty), null, "text/plain");
System.Net.Mail.AlternateView htmlView = System.Net.Mail.AlternateView.CreateAlternateViewFromString(BodyText.Replace("\n","<BR>"), null  , System.Net.Mime.MediaTypeNames.Text.Html);

Email Help (System.Net.Mail)


Hi I have a annoying problem. 
I have created a page which takes users details for a quote.

I have then created the form to be emailed to both the user and myself. (Which works fine ATM)

However I would also like to be able to attach a file containing terms and conditions to the email.

I have tried doing this using 

EmailMsg.Attachments.Add(new Attachment("C:\\attachme.txt"));

But everytime that line of code is hit it fails and is caught by my try catch.

Take that line out and the email sends fine, put it in and it breaks the whole page.

Am I missing something really obvious?

Sending email System.net.mail


Ok here's my problem. I have a contact page with a txtbox for users name, email and message for users to contact me.  When I send the message it goes through, but the senders email is always my email. Even though i have set it to the txtEmail.Text property. So when I reply, it sends me an email. What am I not seeing that I messed up. Also this is running from VS 2005.

                 protected void btnSubmit_Click1(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)

                 const string toAddress = "myemail@gmail.com";
                    MailAddress from = new MailAddress(txtEmail.Text, txtName.Text);
			        MailAddress to = new MailAddress(toAddress, "Admin");
			        MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, to);

			        // set properties
			        message.Subject = txtName.Text + " has sent you an email!";
			        message.Body = txtMessage.Text;
                                message.IsBodyHtml = false;

System.Threading AND email


Hi guys,

I really need some help (and also some code example), in how to use System.Threading to send emails.

The issue is:

a) I have a function that sends emails;

b) But I don't want to keep the customers waiting for the email being sent;

c) so, I figure it out that the System.Threading is the best way to do that; But I don't know how exactly I cant use it.

PLEASE, i'm VB - not C# - developer, and I really appreciate help in that language.

I can't use Windows Services or SQL Jobs...

Could you help me on this?



SharePoint Workflow E-mail Hyperlink has the Spaces Between Two Words Are Removed

I have a very simple Workflow, that includes href link to Infopath form.
If the form name includes spaces, the URL redirects to a The Form has been Closed message, indicating that it cant find that form.
In our scenario, the file name of the document/form in SharePoint when saved is called "Travel Request - <submit date>"  as noted with spaces.
The Hyperlink URL in the email generated by the workflow appears to encode all values in the name after the first two words (after Request).  See below.  after the word Request the spaces are encoded properly.     its replacing the first space with it appears %0d%0a (CR LF)
The URL below is what is displayed when right clicking, and selecting Edit Hyperlink in the email

I can reproduce this in development and production.  Any ideas on how this can be resolved?

SSIS 2005 - Send Mail Task - signature appended to email is garbled - unicode problem?

Hi, I'm pretty new to SSIS so go easy on me. I have a Send Mail Task to notify if a file cannot be imported - the mailbody is created on the previous step by a VB.NET script task to include the name of the file and the path it's been archived to. The problem I'm having is that while the body of the email I've created is displaying fine, our company's Exchange server appends a signature to all emails, and this is coming up as undisplayable characters, presumably due to some kind of unicode encoding problem. I've tried casting the email body in an expression to DT_STR (doesn't work as DT_STR "cannot be converted to a supported type" which seems a bit odd but never mind), DT_WSTR (garbled signature), DT_TEXT/DT_NTEXT (strange error on this one - "Attempted to read or write protected memory") none of those ideas worked, and I'm a bit stumped now. Can anyone help? I'm using SSIS 2005 with SP3

System.Net.Mail e-mail header info problem

I'm new to using the system.net.mail class and I'm having trouble with a small program I'm writing.  I use my SendMessage() to send an email public static void SendMessage(string msg)         {             System.IO.File.Copy(mySource + msg, destSource + msg);             MailMessage mail = new MailMessage("from@me.com", "to@you.com, msg, "");                        Attachment attch = new Attachment(destSource + msg, "text/plain; format=flowed;reply-type=original"); //content-type text/plain                                   mail.Attachments.Add(attch);                                  MessagingCenter.client.Send(mail);             mail.Dispose();         } However, the email sent

How do I access the custom headers created with System.Net.Mail?

I've created some custom headers for my emails.  I've used a breakpoint to see that they are being added to the collection correctly.  I don't understand how to access these from the email that's generated though.  I'm currently dropping the emails into a pickup directory on my local machine and viewing them with Windows Mail.  I have "view all" headers checked in Windows mail but still don't see them when I open my emails in the pick up directory.Can someone please tell me how to access the headers that I added?  Below is an example of how I did it.  I'm hoping to add things like name, address, phone... etc, and then have them visible in the email.   Is this even the correct use of custom headers? message.Headers.Add("X-Name", txtName.Text);  

Unable to filter the "E-mail To" field in email enabled document library

Hi, We have setup a few email enabled docuement libraries to store emails relating to project work. Is there a way to make the "E-mail To" field in the library be filtered? It is greyed out and doesnt give you the option. The "E-mail From" and "E-mail Subject" are able to have a filter applied to them but for some reason the "E-mail To" field wont let you filter the content. The probelm is that there are over 500 files in the library and the easiest way to find messages is to be able ot filter this column in the library if it is at all possible.
