  NameDescription
Public propertyAccessGets the level of access to SMTP servers controlled by the permission.

  NameDescription
Public methodAddPermissionAdds the specified access level value to the permission.
Public methodAssertDeclares that the calling code can access the resource protected by a permission demand through the code that calls this method, even if callers higher in the stack have not been granted permission to access the resource. Using Assert can create security issues. (Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Public methodCopyCreates and returns an identical copy of the current permission. (Overrides CodeAccessPermission.Copy().)
Public methodDemandForces a SecurityException at run time if all callers higher in the call stack have not been granted the permission specified by the current instance. (Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Public methodDeny Obsolete. Prevents callers higher in the call stack from using the code that calls this method to access the resource specified by the current instance. (Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the specified CodeAccessPermission object is equal to the current CodeAccessPermission. (Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Public methodFromXmlSets the state of the permission using the specified XML encoding. (Overrides CodeAccessPermission.FromXml(SecurityElement).)
Public methodGetHashCodeGets a hash code for the CodeAccessPermission object that is suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures such as a hash table. (Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIntersectCreates and returns a permission that is the intersection of the current permission and the specified permission. (Overrides CodeAccessPermission.Intersect(IPermission).)
Public methodIsSubsetOfReturns a value indicating whether the current permission is a subset of the specified permission. (Overrides CodeAccessPermission.IsSubsetOf(IPermission).)
Public methodIsUnrestrictedReturns a value indicating whether the current permission is unrestricted.
Public methodPermitOnlyPrevents callers higher in the call stack from using the code that calls this method to access all resources except for the resource specified by the current instance. (Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Public methodToStringCreates and returns a string representation of the current permission object. (Inherited from CodeAccessPermission.)
Public methodToXmlCreates an XML encoding of the state of the permission. (Overrides CodeAccessPermission.ToXml().)
Public methodUnionCreates a permission that is the union of the current permission and the specified permission. (Overrides CodeAccessPermission.Union(IPermission).)

The SmtpPermission and SmtpPermissionAttribute classes control access to SMTP host computers. The SmtpClient class demands an SmtpPermission when sending electronic mail to the SMTP host for delivery.

The SmtpAccess enumeration specifies the level of access controlled by an instance of this permission.

The following code example creates an instance of an SmtpPermission.

public static SmtpPermission CreateConnectPermission()
{
    SmtpPermission connectAccess = new 
        SmtpPermission(SmtpAccess.Connect);
    Console.WriteLine("Access? {0}", connectAccess.Access);
    return connectAccess;
}
