    Hey,

    I have a question, what are the possibilities of sending emails using
    ASP.net. (and VB.net)
    What I think is that user can send automatic reminder if he check box on
    the form and submit. Do I need to have SMTP server? Can it be done
    without using of SMTP, something similar to automation in VB?
    I tried before for quite a few days to automate generating word
    documents and finally I gave up, so I would like to know before I start
    working on the emails if there are any known solutions.
    Thank you
    Arek

    Not clear. If you want the user to create a mail client side you could use a
    a href="mailto:" tag.
    If you want this to be server side, you'll have to use System.Web.Mail, you
    need a SMTP server (not necessarily local, possibly on a remote machine).

    Not clear when. Is this something you want to schedule ? (in which case you
    could this directly from the SQL Server database using a job that turns at
    given time and sends the reminder mail...)

    Patrice,

    What I would like to do is to give users options to send reminders.
    For instance Mrs X adds a tasks to the database and assign MR Y to that
    task. Then there is a check box on the page. If checked, when she
    submits task system would send automatic email to Mr Y teeling him that
    task was added and assigned to him.

    Thank you
    Arek

    So it looks like a mail that is sent immediatly and automatically server
    side when the form is submitted.

    See System.Web.Mail. You'll need of course a SMTP server but it could be at
    a remote location (AFAIK needs .NET 1.1 as this configuration is done
    throught the Fields Property).

    See :
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;286431
    (this is for CDO but should apply as well to .NET, you may have also to add
    some authentification info is required byt the SMTP server).
