Testing smtp code locally via smtp4dev with no smtp server setup

1102038_25845967 Just another plug for a very helpful tool that I’ve been using for testing SMTP code locally. Smtp4dev simulates an SMTP server on your local machine, allowing you to send email via a local SMTP connection in your code when you do not have a SMTP server setup. You can even inspect the messages to ensure that they are exactly as intended, with the subject, body, etc. Very simple, but useful tool that I find myself using quite often. http://smtp4dev.codeplex.com/ (see below for a basic example of sending a message via smtp locally)

public static void SendEmail(string aFrom, string aTo, string aSubject, string aBody)
    //create the mail message
    MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();

    //set the addresses
    mail.From = new MailAddress(aFrom);

    //set the content
    mail.Subject = aSubject;
    mail.Body = aBody;

    //send the message
    SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("localhost");
    smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = true;

What My Clients Say

Karin - Hope and Future

Brent has always been very prompt and generally exceeds our expectations with his work. His maintenance fee is very reasonable. I strongly recommend him!  We get many compliments on our beautiful web site!


I contacted Krueger Web Design and Brent did everything.  He setup a test site with the changes so we could verify everything was correct before we transferred from my old hosting provider.  During the setup and conversion Brent was extremely professional and responsive. He responded to any issues the same day.
