Send an Office365 SMTP mail in .NET/C#

Sending a mail using Office365 is no big deal. It is just similar to how you send a mail via any SMTP server. But you will have to mind the SMTP host, port number and remember to enable SSL in the code. Here goes the code snippet:

using (MailMessage message = new MailMessage())
message.From = new MailAddress("");
message.Subject = "test mail";
message.Body = "<h1>test</h1>";
message.IsBodyHtml = true;

SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("", 587);

client.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("", "passwordhere");
client.EnableSsl = true;

My old, but new blog

I am blogging since 2001, and got a permanent home by 2004. So it is nearly two decades now. But due to poor quality hosting and I was not rich enough to afford the high costs that time, my site crashed N number of times. I was able to restore my site from backups most of the time. But recently, again after a major server crash, I realized that most of the posts became obsolete now as most of my blogging was about technology, so there is no point in keeping those junk.

Now I am on a new hosting plan, seems stable, but with a fresh start. Let me begin (not resume) a new journey. Thank you for the support by reading my blogs.
