    SSK Source Update

    Use of deprecated classes in SSK.Server.SendMail class. It's using System.Web.Mail namespace classes for sending e-mail, while .NET Framework 2.0 has a new namespace for sending e-mails, namely System.Net.Mail.

    Below is an updated version of the "sendmail.cs" file inside the App_Code folder of the sharewareservice part of SSK.

    This update makes it possible to send e-mail from your localhost without IIS SMTP Service installed.

    using System;
    using System.Net.Mail;
    using System.Configuration;
    using System.Data.SqlClient;
    using Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.Data;

    namespace SSK.Server
    /// <summary>
    /// Summary description for SendMail.
    /// </summary>
    public class SendMail

    private MailMessage _message;

    public SendMail() { }

    /// <summary>
    /// Send an email to the user with their license information
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="invoice">The invoice for the transaction</param>
    /// <param name="authLicense">The product key generated by the system.</param>
    public void SendMailApprovedLicense(string invoice, string authLicense)
    SqlDataReader reader = SqlHelper.ExecuteReader(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["SQLConnectionString"], "SendMailApprovedLicense", invoice);

    if (reader.HasRows)
    string body;
    string to = (string)reader["Email"];
    string subject = "Your product has been activated.";
    body = "<table width=\"500\"><tr><td>";
    body += "Dear " + (string)reader["Firstname"] + ",<br><br><br>";
    body += "Thank you for activating your product. Please make a note of the following information ";
    body += "for future reference:<br><br>";
    body += "</td></tr>";
    body += "<tr><td width=\"500\">";
    body += "Product Key: " + invoice + " ";
    body += "<br><br>";
    body += "</td></tr>";
    body += "<tr><td>";
    body += "Thank you,<Br>";
    body += ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["FromName"] + "<br><br>";
    body += ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["FromEmail"];
    body += "</td></tr>";
    body += "</table>";

    Send(subject, body, to);
    //fail gracefully if the mail doesn't send

    public void Send(string subject, string body, string to)
    _message = new MailMessage();
    _message.IsBodyHtml = true;
    _message.From = new MailAddress(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["FromEmail"]);
    _message.Subject = subject;
    _message.Body = body;

    SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["SMTP"]);
