Sending Email in Windows Phone App

Sending Email in Windows Phone App

To send Email from your application use the following procedure

First import the following package in your application

   using Microsoft.Phone.Tasks;
  
Then we have EmailComposeTask class to compose the Email as below


            EmailComposeTask emailComposeTask = new EmailComposeTask();

            emailComposeTask.Subject = "Best Wishes";
            emailComposeTask.Body = "Thank you for reading my blog";
            emailComposeTask.To = "reader@gmail.com";
            emailComposeTask.Cc = "lectures@gmail.com";
            emailComposeTask.Bcc = "antony@gmail.com";
            emailComposeTask.Show();

I created a Sample application for your better understanding of how to send Email from your application.

Project Name: Email_Compose

        </Grid>
    </Grid>

            </shell:ApplicationBar.MenuItems>
        </shell:ApplicationBar>
    </phone:PhoneApplicationPage.ApplicationBar>-->

</phone:PhoneApplicationPage>

  

My C# code MainPage.xaml.cs

{
    public partial class MainPage : PhoneApplicationPage
    {
        // Constructor
        public MainPage()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            EmailComposeTask emailComposeTask = new EmailComposeTask();

            emailComposeTask.Subject = "Best Wishes";
            emailComposeTask.Body = "Thank you for reading my blog";

            emailComposeTask.Bcc = "antony@gmail.com";
            emailComposeTask.Show();
        }
    }
}
