Write a mail : problem in SMTP server ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hai to all,

I want to sent and receive a mail to any maild id(based on user mind), now every time I need to give smtp server name of the sender mail in my code, but lot of smtp servers

to use this server for mail purpose.

If i use this server then will my problem is solved then how to use that server or any other solution ?

2010 E-Mail Alerts with External SMTP Mail Server


I'm using SharePoint Server 2010 internally for testing purposes/development purposes.  I don't have Exchange Server or any other SMTP mail server setup.

I have a hosted SMTP mail server.

Can I connect SharePoint Server 2010 to an externally hosted SMTP mail server for e-mail notification testing?

In this case, my hosted SMTP server requires authentication... so I'm not sure SharePoint Server 2010 will be able to connect.

Any ideas?

SQL Server Session state problem.


Hi to all,

I have some things that I want to know. I am right now using a free asp.net webhosting ("somee.com"). The problem is that when I am visiting a page, there's a tendency that values stored in my session variables are lost. Therefore, it causes an error when the requested page is loaded.

1. I am thinking of using sessionState mode="SqlServer". Will it solve my problem?

Actualy Im working on it but Im having problems when connecting to the sql database.

2.  Is that a problem in the webhost?

3. Do free webhosting sites provide allow session state in the sql server?. Because ive tried it locally into my computer and error say's i should intall the ASP.NET Session State SQL Server version 2.0 or above.

SQL Server Express2008 R2 brings app down, instance problem


I have tried dozens of changes and modifications to many settings as I will outilne here and all to no avail.

The short answer here though is that I uninstalled SQL Sever Express 2008 R2 and went back to the "NON" 2008 R2 and got things working. But like the fool I am wanted to run on the more current rev and updated again, all problems returned....

SQL Server Express 2008


I was orginally getting this message after updating to SQL Sever Express 2008 R2, I removed VWD 2008 Express from the web server, no good, then uninstalled SQL Server 2008 Express R2 and reinstalled SQL Server 2008 Express. worked but had issues, couldn't install MGTM Studio. Then I removed SQL 2008, cleaned folders and reg. Reloaded SQL Server 2008 Express, still flaky, couldn't get the Management Studio to install. So I removed it again and used the Web Platform Installer, which worked but loaded 2008 R2 again. Which brought back the message.

Problem adding .NET 3.5.1 feature on Server 2008 R2

Having an issue with a 2008 R2 64-bit Server becoming unresponsive/locking up when trying to activate the .NET 3.5.1 feature.  Did not have any previous version of .NET installed but ran the .NET Cleanup utility and completed successfully but still have same issue.  It installed .NET 4 via the Microsoft Updates OK but still hangs part way through the 3.5.1 install via the Server Manager/Add Features.  Any ideas?  Thanks!
