I've seen lots of different topics regarding this but haven't found anything that answers my issue.
I've created a custom page within mojoPortal which will be a contact form. I am aware that there is a ContactForm module built into mojoPortal, but I'd like to use my own.
However, when I created my custom contact page, I also created a code-behind page in a separate file (just a habit) - this is where my contact form logic is placed - below is the logic that I am using for the submit enquiry button:
//create the mail message
MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
mail.From = new MailAddress("firstname.lastname@example.org");
mail.Subject = "This is an enquiry from the website : " + Subject.Text;
mail.IsBodyHtml = true;
System.Text.StringBuilder emailBodyString = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
emailBodyString.Append("<b>Name : </b>" + Name.Text);
emailBodyString.Append("<br><b>E-mail : </b>" + Email.Text);
emailBodyString.Append("<br><b>Telephone number : </b>" + Telephone.Text);
emailBodyString.Append("<br><b>Subject : </b>" + Subject.Text);
emailBodyString.Append("<br><b>Message : </b>" + message.Text);
mail.Body = emailBodyString.ToString();
//send the message
SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("localhost");
successLabel.Text = "There has been an error sending your email";
Whenever the enquiry is submitted (and I remove the try / catch block) I get an error "5.7.1 Unable to relay for ..."
This is strange as it works for other websites that I have built (not mojoPortal websites) as the code is the same.
Am I missing something glaringly obvious?
sounds like your smtp server running at localhost is not configured correctly, I recommend do some googling on this error, there is lots of information available.
