Sending Email using your GMail Account in C#.NET



Use System.Net.Mail namespace, not the deprecated System.Web.Mail. Doing SSL with System.Web.Mail will get security problems

var client = new SmtpClient
//create a host
                Host = "",
               //gmail uses port number 587
                Port = 587,
               //Enable Secure Communication
                EnableSsl = true,
                //Set delivery method to Network
                DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network,
               //Give the Credentials
                Credentials = new NetworkCredential("", "yourPassword"),
                //Set some timeout
                Timeout = 20000

 //Create a MailMessage Object
            using (var mailMessage = new MailMessage("", toEmailId)
                //add subject and EmailBody(content) to Mail Message object
                Subject = “Subject of the Email”,
                Body = “Content of the Email”
                //Send the Message...
                client.Send(mailMessage );


Suggestions appreciated……….

Encrypting and Decrypting Query Strings in

Introduction We often pass values between pages in the form of a query string as key-value pairs. Query string is the easiest way and most widely practiced mechanism of transferring small pieces of data between web pages. The end-user may change the value in the query string to play around with the application, and at the same time, it leads to compromising the security and data integrity of the system. So the solution is encrypting the query strings. Following is the simple way of encryption and decryption mechanism in First I created two methods for encryption and decryption Encrypt the string private string Encrypt(string stringToEncrypt)          {              byte[] inputByteArray = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(stringToEncrypt);              byte[] rgbIV = { 0x21, 0x43, 0x56, 0x87, 0x10, 0xfd, 0xea, 0x1c };              byte[] key = { };              try              {                  key = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("A0D1nX0Q");

Installing nginx with passenger and RVM

In this post I am going to tell you how to install the nginx server with passenger to host rails applications. Following are my configurations: OS: Ubuntu 11.10 Ruby: 1.8.7 I am using RVM Don't install nginx with sudo apt-get install nginx command, I face lot of problems with it.. First install Ruby 1.8.7 with RVM Next install passenger which ever version you want, I prefer latest. gem install passenger The above command will install passenger for your system, now we can install either apache2 or nginx as HTTP servers. I am installing nginx here. After installing passenger you need to run the following command rvmsudo passenger-install-nginx-module This is important step while installing,  Don't run above command with sudo or without rvmsudo it won't work as expected. The script will ask you if you want a default installation or a custom/advanced on. I just did the default (option 1). The script downloads and compiles nginx. It will ask you where you w
