SmtpClient Constructor (String, Int32)

Note: This constructor is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Initializes a new instance of the SmtpClient class that sends e-mail by using the specified SMTP server and port.

Namespace: System.Net.Mail
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public SmtpClient (
	string host,
	int port
)
public SmtpClient (
	String host, 
	int port
)
public function SmtpClient (
	host : String, 
	port : int
)

Parameters

host

A String that contains the name or IP address of the host used for SMTP transactions.

port

An Int32 greater than zero that contains the port to be used on host.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

port cannot be less than zero.

The host and port parameters set the value of the Host and Port properties, respectively. If host is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or equal to String.Empty, Host is initialized using the settings in the application or machine configuration files. If port is zero, Port is initialized using the settings in the application or machine configuration files. The Credentials property is initialized using the settings in the application or machine configuration files.

For more information about using the application and machine configuration files, see mailSettings Element (Network Settings). If information is specified using SmtpClient constructors or properties, this information overrides the configuration file settings.

The following code example demonstrates calling this constructor.

public static void CreateTestMessage1(string server, int port)
{
    string to = "jane@contoso.com";
    string from = "ben@contoso.com";
    string subject = "Using the new SMTP client.";
    string body = @"Using this new feature, you can send an e-mail message from an application very easily.";
    MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, to, subject, body);
    SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient(server, port);
    // Credentials are necessary if the server requires the client 
    // to authenticate before it will send e-mail on the client's behalf.
    client.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials;

    client.Send(message);
}
