How to send an email via Silk Test Workbench .net script

How to send an email via Silk Test Workbench .net script

Silk Test has no in-built functionality to send email in a test.  However you can manually script this using the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).

Please see example below that creates the mail message and sends the email to a recipient using a Silk Test Workbench .net script:-

Public Module Main
    Dim _desktop As Desktop = Agent.Desktop
Public Sub Main()
    'create the mail message
    Dim mail As New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage()

    'set the addresses
    mail.From = New System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("EmailFrom@test.com")

    'set the content
    mail.Subject = "This is a Test Email from SilkTest"
    mail.Body = "This is the body content of the email."

    'set the server
    Dim smtp As New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient
    smtp.Host = "smtp.live.com"
    smtp.Port = 587
    smtp.EnableSsl = True
    smtp.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential("EmailFrom@test.com", "Password")
    'send the message
        Workbench.ResultComment("Your Email has been sent successfully - Thank You")
    Catch exc As Exception
           Workbench.ResultComment("Send failure: " & exc.ToString())
    End Try

    End Sub

End Module
