Property Value

A reference to a MailDefinition that contains properties that define the characteristics of e-mail messages used to send users their passwords.

The MailDefinition property returns a reference to a group of properties that you use to define format and content of the password e-mail message sent to users. Common settings include the subject line and the sender's return address. For a complete list of properties, see the MailDefinition class.

This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the MailDefinition object it returns. You can set these properties declaratively in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty represents a property of the MailDefinition class (for example, MailDefinition-Subject). You can also set the properties programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, MailDefinition.Subject).

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins Overview.

The following code example uses the SendingMail event to define the password e-mail message by setting subproperties of the MailDefinition property.

  void PasswordRecovery1_SendingMail(object sender, MailMessageEventArgs e)
    e.Message.IsBodyHtml = false;
    e.Message.Subject = "New password on Web site.";
