    I would use a library like MailKit

    Perfect, but let me know this could be integrated in a mobile app developed with Xamarin and works in both platform Android and IOS.

    Sorry bother you one more time... but I am very new in Xamarin can you help me with the struct how use this to create my app.. for example

    1. I create a multiplatform app
    2. Select Single View and Shared Library
    3. Then under MyClass.cs created a new class named TestClient

    From here what is the code I have to insert and then where I instance this class to use under Android and IOS platform?
