MVC : Send email using Gmail account

In this article I am going to explain how to send email using Gmail account in asp.net MVC.

Description:
If you don’t have SMTP server to send email then you can use Gmail smtp server to send email from your MVC application.
  
Implementation:
Open the web.config file of project. Set key in appsettings. After that mailsettings as shown below:

<appSettings>
    <add key="Email" value="Emailaddress@gmail.com"/>
  </appSettings>
  <system.net>
    <mailSettings>
      <smtp deliveryMethod="Network">
        <network enableSsl="true" port="587" host="smtp.gmail.com" userName=" Emailaddress@gmail.com" password="password"/>
      </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
  </system.net>


Add controller
Add an empty controller to project. Create an Actionresult to send email.

Complete code to Controller:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Mvc;
using mvctest2017.Models;
using System.Security.Cryptography;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Net.Mail;
using System.Net;
namespace mvctest2017.Controllers
{
  
    public class SendemailController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            return View();
        }
        public ActionResult SendEmail()
        {
            return View();
        }
        [HttpPost]
       public ActionResult SendEmail(string Name, string Subject,string EmailID, string message)
        {
            if (ModelState.IsValid)
            {
                string Email = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Email"].ToString();
                string Emailto = EmailID;
                MailMessage mail = new MailMessage(Email, Emailto);
                mail.Subject = Subject;
                string mailmessage = "Name :"+ Name +"<br>"+ message;
                mail.Body = mailmessage;
                mail.IsBodyHtml = true;
                SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
                smtp.Send(mail);
                ViewBag.Message = "Email sent successfully";
            }
            return View();
        }
    }

}
