Send Email From Azure Web Apps With SocketLabs 

When you use Microsoft Azure, you’ll quickly find that Microsoft does not offer native Azure email sending services to allow sending emails from your web app with SMTP or API. In the Azure app store, you will see a number of email service providers that you can use as an add-on SMTP Service — among them is the SocketLabs email solution.  With a SocketLabs account you can easily send email from an azure web app using SMTP or API for free.  

How To Send Email Through Azure 

With an SMTP server, you can use the System.Net.Mail class to send email from your Azure Web App using the simple code below which can be copied from here.

How To Send Email From an Azure Web App With API

Aside form sending with SMTP, you can also use the SocketLabs Injection API.  The SocketLabs Injection API allows you to transmit messages via HTTP POST events as opposed to transmitting them via SMTP. The Injection API allows you to send messages in what we like to refer to as either Basic or Bulk style. 

The Basic style will send messages in a manner similar to any mailbox application such as Outlook. But the real benefit of the Injection API comes from the Bulk sending version. This allows you to send customizable messages to a large number of recipients. You can also take advantage of our Marketing Tools to create content, and then send a campaign using that content through the Injection API. For information, check out our knowledge base article on injecting outbound messages over SMTP.
