Creating newsletter in silverlight

For my silverlight project I'm creating a newsletter which can be send through a certain page.

For this I have a newsletter service which can be seen here:

       public bool SendMail(string emailTo, string emailFrom, string msgSubject, string msgBody)
        bool success = false;
            MailMessage msg = new MailMessage();
            msg.From = new MailAddress(emailFrom);
            msg.To.Add(new MailAddress(emailTo));
            msg.Subject = msgSubject;
            msg.Body = msgBody;
            msg.IsBodyHtml = true;
            SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
            smtp.Host = ""; // Replace with your servers IP address
            smtp.Port = 465;
            smtp.EnableSsl = false;
            success = true;

        catch(Exception e)
            success = false;

        return success;


And I ask the service to send the mail with the following code:

   public partial class Nieuwsbrief : UserControl
    IEnumerable<Inschrijvingen> ingeschrevenen = null;

    public Nieuwsbrief()
        InschrijvingenServiceClient personclient = new InschrijvingenServiceClient();

        personclient.getInschrijvingenCompleted += new EventHandler<getInschrijvingenCompletedEventArgs>(personclient_getInschrijvingenCompleted);


    private void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        NieuwsbriefServiceClient client = new NieuwsbriefServiceClient();

        //foreach (Inschrijvingen person in ingeschrevenen)
            client.SendMailAsync("", "", txtSubject.Text, txtContent.Text);

        client.SendMailCompleted += new EventHandler<SendMailCompletedEventArgs>(client_SendMailCompleted);

    void personclient_getInschrijvingenCompleted(object sender, getInschrijvingenCompletedEventArgs e)
        ingeschrevenen = e.Result;

    void client_SendMailCompleted(object sender, SendMailCompletedEventArgs e)
        if (e.Error != null)
            txtContent.Text = "Mail has NOT send!" + e.Error.ToString();

However when I press btnSubmit nothing happens, untill I shut down the server and then I get the following error:

Mail has NOT send!System.ServiceModel.CommunicationException: The remote server returned an error: NotFound. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: NotFound. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: NotFound.

I hope somebody can help me, Thanks :)


In your catch statement do this:

catch (Exception e)
{   //<---- Put the break point here.


You can then see 'e' and see why this is failing.

My guess is that it's smtp.Send that's failing, and it can throw a lot of exceptions, so I won't venture to guess which one!

EDIT: Also, where it says "// Replace with your servers IP address", did you replace it with your server's IP address? I first assumed you posted demo code, but I want to be sure.

Well, this is your problem! Gmail lets you use them as an smtp server. Use them: You have to change your smtp.Port to 465 and the smtp.Host to This requires authentication, so go create a gmail account.

How does Reactive Framework differ from F# Events?

f# reactive-programming

If I'm familiar with F# events already, and I don't plan to have too much C# interop, are there significant reasons to consider using the Reactive Framework?

VisitMethodCall not visiting every part

c# linq iqueryable

I have an expression visitor translating the expression to a url format. But it only converts the expression called at last. For example, if I call my collection like this:
