Hi there,

I am trying to get the sending mail working. In the webconfig there are 2 places where mailservers and logon names/pwd are defined. On top in the appsettings and below in de system.net mailcofig settings.
Is there anybody who can explain the difference between the two and what I can do to prevent my (currently) relaying problems?

The app settings in the web.config are for our use. They are pulled out when you send mail to members or someone makes a post onto a forum. The bottom one is for the ASP.NET membership provider to say "hey... this is your forgot password request. heres your new password".
