Send bulk Email in asp.net using excel file

When you want to send the mail to multiple person email id and your data exists in the excel file like email address and his name. you can accomplish this task using asp.net and c#. In C# under System.Net.Mail and System.Net namespace you can use classes which can help us to send mail effortlessly.

I am giving some sample code to understand the concept

Following is aspx design Page Sample

            writer.WriteEndElement(); 
            writer.Close(); 
        } 
    } 
} 

The above code reads the excel file and iterates each email id. This code also stores the logs of each mail sent into xml file for the reference. this code is ideal for the sending bulk emails using code. above code can be used as class library in project to reuse in different modules of project.

I Hope that you will benefited by the above code.

Hoppy Coding:)

  2. If you need to build up a distribution lists you can get third parties to send on your behalf (the recipients of these e-mails have either signed up for this service or are content to see appropriate adverts within their mail).

  3. Awesome. I always make sure I'm building high quality lists by removing the invalid addresses as soon as I can. Luckily, thanks to my favourite mass email checker, correct.email, it's really just a piece of cake.
