NetworkCredential basicCredential = new NetworkCredential(username, password);

MailMessage message = new MailMessage();

MailAddress fromAddress = new MailAddress(from@yourdomain-name.com);

smtpClient.Host = your domain-name;

smtp.Port = 25;

smtp.EnableSsl = false;

smtpClient.UseDefaultCredentials = false;

smtpClient.Credentials = basicCredential;

message.From = fromAddress;
message.Subject = your subject;
//Set IsBodyHtml to true means you can send HTML email.
message.IsBodyHtml = true;
message.Body = your message body;
message.To.Add(to@anydomain.com);

try
{
smtpClient.Send(message);
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
//Error, could not send the message
Response.Write(ex.Message);

NetworkCredential basicCredential = new NetworkCredential(yourmail@gmail.com, password);

MailMessage message = new MailMessage();

MailAddress fromAddress = new MailAddress(from@gmail.com);

smtpClient.Host = smtp.gmail.com;

smtp.Port = 587;

smtp.EnableSsl = true;
