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:



   <smtp deliveryMethod=”SpecifiedPickupDirectory“>

    <specifiedPickupDirectory pickupDirectoryLocation=”c:incoming” />




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.
