I have a piece of code as below.
--------------------------------------------------
Dim MailServer As String = "THOMAS" Local SMTP virtual svr
Dim ToEmail As String = "thomas@mydomain.com"
Dim ToName As String = "Thomas George"
Dim FromEmail As String = "test@mydomain.com"
Dim FromName As String = "Test"
Dim Subject As String = "Test Mail"
Dim Body As String = "Test Body"
Dim o_Client As System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient = New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient(MailServer)
Dim o_FromAddress As System.Net.Mail.MailAddress = New System.Net.Mail.MailAddress(FromEmail, FromName)
Dim o_ToAddress As System.Net.Mail.MailAddress = New System.Net.Mail.MailAddress(ToEmail, ToName)
Dim o_Message As System.Net.Mail.MailMessage = New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage(o_FromAddress, o_ToAddress)
o_Message.Subject = Subject
o_Message.Body = Body

AddHandler o_Client.SendCompleted, AddressOf sendMail_SendCompleted
o_Client.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.PickupDirectoryFromIis

Try
o_Client.Send(o_Message)

Catch exc As Exception

End Try
--------------------------------------------------

The problem is nothing happening, no error returned.
Can anybody say what could be wrong.

thank you,

Is smtp under IIS configured correctly and is the service running? If you are getting no errors check the smtp services pickup folder (IIRC under your inetpub\mailroot folder somewhere) to see if the emails are being generated.

Thanks for the response.

The SMTP svr is configured and started.

Under inetpub\mailroot , Queue and Pickup folders are there.
I can see a mail message in Queue and nothing in Pickup folder.
Its staying in Queue for ever.

No errors being logged. One thing I noticed is when the code run in debug mode, it is not going to the _Sendcompleted event.
