As anyone who has used the .Net System.Web.Mail namespace can attest, the default .Net mail classes are woefully lacking
in functionality. It's really a shame too, considering that
they're based off of the very powerful CDONTS/CDOSYS libraries, which
allow a lot more functionality.
In this first investigation into unleashing the full power .Net web
mail, we will create a simple web interface to send email messages with
a user uploaded attachment without saving the uploaded attachment to disk first.
Some of this functionality is likely built into many third party
mail packages, but why pay for it if you have time and you can build it
So if you're still interested, hop on over to the workshop article.
As always, please leave comments, questions and criticism in the post.
