IN THIS CHAPTER
In this chapter I discuss three topics related to transporting messages over a network. In the first section, you'll learn how to send email from an ASP.NET page. You'll learn how to create and send both text and HTML messages.
Next, you'll be provided with an overview of Microsoft Message Queuing. You'll learn how to use Message Queuing to reliably transfer messages from server to server over a network.
Finally, in the final section, you'll learn how to use the WebClient , HttpWebRequest , and HttpWebResponse classes to simulate both HTTP GET and POST requests . You can use these classes, for example, to retrieve the contents of a Web page from a remote Web site.
