SMTP mail goes to JUNK folder?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I am sending mails thru SMTP server. If i use HTML body, then email is going to JUNK folder. If plain Text, then email going to Inbox. But I need to use HTML in body, without going email to JUNK. Any ideas?

I am sending this email from valid email address. i.e noreply@abc.com. abc is our company name. All other emails, which I get from this email address goes to Inbox only. But when i try to send mail it is going to JUNK, if body is HTML.

How ot deal with this?

SMTP Service not found in services folder


I am having a bit of a challenge.  I have Sharepoint 2010 and picked SMTP in the roles option.  Then I installed IIS 6.0 manager.  It installed correctly.  I was then going through and creating the SMTP instructions that I found on technet.  The bottom line is when I goto services to make sure it was turned on automatically (as technet directed me to do) I could not find the SMTP service.


Does anyone know why this is?  I had uninstalled reinstalled SMTP but it still does not show up.

Port: 465 or 587

   <smtp from="myemail@gmail.com">

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?

SMTP not working if I use web deployment package to deploy my app.


Hi all

I use msdeploy to install my web app. deployment package. everything about web app works, but find out email was not working.

I checked telnet smtp is running.

I debug the project, and it was sending out email too.

So my solution was upload the whole project (not complied) to wwwroot, and email works too. Thats why I assume the deployment cause the problem.

at last, I also tried to copy the web deployment web.config to replace the project's web.config, and the email also work, so it wasn't the web.config problem.

Could anyone tell me whats going on?

My environment:

window 2003

iis 6

.net framework 4.0

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?
