Quick tip : How to write emails to a local directory rather than sending them through a mail server.


Replace your existing mail configuration with the config below:

<system.net>

<mailSettings>

   <smtp deliveryMethod=”SpecifiedPickupDirectory“>

    <specifiedPickupDirectory pickupDirectoryLocation=”c:incoming” />

   </smtp>

</mailSettings>

</system.net>

When you send a mail using the built in .NET classes, a *.eml file will be created in the directory you specify. You can then view the email by simply opening the file.
