Hi all

The above error arising while using email sending code my code is
string fromAddress = "mymail";
string fromPassword = "mypassword";

var smtp = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient();
smtp.Host = "smtp.gmail.com";
smtp.Port = 587;
smtp.EnableSsl = true;
smtp.DeliveryMethod = System.Net.Mail.SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
smtp.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(fromAddress, fromPassword);
smtp.Timeout = 20000;
// Passing values to smtp object
smtp.Send(fromAddress, toAddress, MailSubject, Body);
I googled many times but didnt get proper solution.Port 587 is enbled and firewall blocking also not there.

hi all
I got solution as
if you are using any antivirus software check it's log to see whether it is because of the antivirus. I faced same problem when McAffee was blocking my mails (there is a security policy - Prevent mass mailing worms from sending mails). Edit this policy and add your application to the exception list. In my case this sorted the problem. Please check if it works for you.
