Define what you mean by "not working."  Check SMTP logs.  Test SMTP with Outlook or another client.  And tell us why you chose to use the Pickup directory instead of a more normal system.net.mail method.

Jeff is right.  Unless there is a specific reason that you can't use system.mail.net you should use the following:



<smtp from=from@myDomain.com>

<network host="mail.myDomain.com" password=p@ssw0rd userName="userName" />




If everything happens for a reason what is the reason for this error?
