I am developing ASP.NET web application.

In that, i am sending mail to end user from my SQL Mail profile.

i have the below mail profile and account name and mail id.

SQL Mail Account Name : IND GROUP MAIL

E-mail ID : indteamsupport@jeevesteam.com

We are sending mail from "indteamsupport@jeevesteam.com", but, SQL Mail Account name "IND GROUP MAIL" not displaying in the from account.

It should come like below to end user.

From : IND TEAM MAIL indteamsupport@jeevesteam.com

To : xxxxxxx

End user getting mail without "IND GROUP MAIL" this. .....?

below is the ASP.NET (C#) code for sending mail to end user.

using System;

using MailKit.Net.Smtp;
using MailKit;
using MimeKit;

namespace TestClient {
  class Program
    public static void Main (string[] args)
      var email = new MimeMessage();

      email.From.Add(new MailboxAddress("Sender Name", "IND TEAM MAIL <indteamsupport@jeevesteam.com>"));
      email.To.Add(new MailboxAddress("Receiver Name", "xyz@email.com"));

      email.Subject = "Testing out email sending";
     email.Body = new TextPart(MimeKit.Text.TextFormat.Plain) { 
    Text = "Hello all the way from the land of C#"
      using (var smtp = new SmtpClient())
        smtp.Connect("smtp.server.address", 587, false);

        // Note: only needed if the SMTP server requires authentication
        smtp.Authenticate("smtp_username", "smtp_password");

    Hi @Gani_tpt,

    There is a problem with the following line of code.

    Correct way to write it:

    email.From.Add(new MailboxAddress("IND TEAM MAIL ", "indteamsupport@jeevesteam.com"));

    SQL Mail? You are not using SQL Mail. You are using the MimeKit and MailKit classes developed by Jeffrey Stedfast, with the documentation found here: https://mimekit.net/docs/html/Introduction.htm (And which I had never heard of prior to seeing your post.) There is zero relation to SQL Mail.

    Looking at his Getting Started examples, it seems that you are calling the MailboxAddress constructor in the wrong way. I think you should have:

       email.From.Add(new MailboxAddress("IND TEAM MAIL", "indteamsupport@jeevesteam.com"));
