The value of the Host property can also be set using constructors or the application or machine configuration file. For more information, see mailSettings Element (Network Settings).

If information is specified using this property, this information overrides the configuration file settings.

The following code example demonstrates sending an e-mail message by using the host and port specified in an application configuration file.

public static void CreateTestMessage4(string server)
{
    MailAddress from = new MailAddress("ben@contoso.com");
    MailAddress to = new MailAddress("Jane@contoso.com");
    MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, to);
    message.Subject = "Using the SmtpClient class.";
    message.Body = @"Using this feature, you can send an e-mail message from an application very easily.";
    SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient(server);
    Console.WriteLine("Sending an e-mail message to {0} by using SMTP host {1} port {2}.",
         to.ToString(), client.Host, client.Port);
    client.Send(message);
}
