Sending .msg over SMTP


I see that this question was asked 2 years ago and I hope that you have made some development allowing a user to send MSG file using SMTP?
For example in Outlook I can configure my account to send files over SMTP, but I don’t see such functionality in the Aspose library.
Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Hi Lyubomir,

Thank you for writing to Aspose Support team.

Aspose.Email supports loading and send MSG files using SMTP. The MailMessage class is capable of loading MSG files which can then be sent using the SmtpClient object. Please have a look at the following code sample that:

  • Loads a MSG file from disc
  • Sets its From and To field (assuming that the subject and body has to remain the same)
  • Sends it using the SmtpClient

Please try it at your end and let us know if we can be of any additional help to you in this regard.

Sample Code:

<!–[if gte mso 9]>
<m:mathFont m:val=“Cambria Math”/>
<m:brkBin m:val=“before”/>
<m:brkBinSub m:val="–"/>
<m:smallFrac m:val=“off”/>
<m:lMargin m:val=“0”/>
<m:rMargin m:val=“0”/>
<m:defJc m:val=“centerGroup”/>
<m:wrapIndent m:val=“1440”/>
<m:intLim m:val=“subSup”/>
<m:naryLim m:val=“undOvr”/>
<![endif]–><!–[if gte mso 10]>

MailMessage msg = MailMessage.Load("storedMsg.msg", MailMessageLoadOptions.DefaultMsg);

msg.From = "";

msg.To = "";

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