[Mono-list] Testing SmtpSend

There are two problems with calling SmtpMail.Send.

First of all, you need to tell `mcs' in what DLL the class exists.  You
don't need to do this with `csc' because it provides several default
DLLs that it looks in.  Thus, your compile command should be:

	mcs -r System.Web.dll send_mail.cs

This will allow your program to compile.

The second problem has been alluded to already: SmtpMail.Send is a work
in progress.  Looking at the code, if you attempt to call SmtpMail.Send,
you'll get a `System.NotImplementedException'.

    I'm a new mono user. I'm doing some tests with mono. In particular I'm
    trying to use SmtpSend.
    When I try to compile this code:
    using System;
    using System.Web.Mail.SmtpMail;
    public class AG_SendMail
    	public static void Main()
    		string from = "andy80@ptlug.org";
    		string to = "andy80@ptlug.org";
    		string subject = "E-mail inviata da C#";
    		string body = "<html><body>E-mail inviata da C# - con
    		SmtpMail.Send(from, to, subject, body);
    I get this error:
    [shady@piccoli cs]$ mcs send_mail.cs 
    send_mail.cs(12) error CS0246: Cannot find type `SmtpMail'
    Error: Compilation failed
    RESULT: 1
    How can I solve this?
    Thank you,
