Hi altaiir,

messages don't have bodies they have views. You can add for Instance an html view by using the following code.


var message = new Message();
message.Views.Add(new View {
    Text = "myText",
    MediaType = "text/html"


You can add as many views as you like, however most clients only support "text/plain" and "text/html".
The only documentation is under the Documentation tab, due to time shortages it is not yet fully completed and covers little to no basics.

thank you for explaining that, i'm a beginner coding with visual basic 2010 that's why i was searching for some "recognizable" words like "body" :)

now this is working as good as expected i was able to send a mail in html format and plain text, but i'm confused about views ; in intellisense this is marqued as ReadOnly !!! 

Another thing about "SecurityPolicies" :  (None - "TLS" Implicit - "SSL" Explicit) ; Now, in my working example , using "" on port 25 with SSL , The Implicit (TLS) one was the right !!!

I'm glad you figured it out. Views is marked as read only to avoid beeing able to do this.

message.Views = null;

This means the reference to the list can"t be changed, the list can.
