    Post Unable to send email using SmtpClient

    I have written the following code for sending Email. I have used my Gmail username and password for Network credentials.

    string strEmailID ; //It is some valid Email ID.

    MailMessage mail = new MailMessage("Admin@Accounts.com", strEmailID);
    mail.Subject = "New Reimbursement added";
    mail.Body = "Test";

    SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient();
    client.Port = 587;
    client.Host = "smtp.gmail.com";
    client.EnableSsl = true;
    client.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(username, password);
    client.Send(mail);

    But this doesn't work for all systems. In some systems, it is successfully sending mail, but in some systems, it is throwing an exception.

    Can any one help me regarding this.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Data.OleDb;
    using System.Data;
    using System.IO;
    
    
    namespace mySendEmail
    {
        class Program
        {
            
            
            public static void Main(string[] args)
            {
                mySendEmail("\\\\somefile.txt");
            }
    
            // get numbers   
            static void mySendEmail(string filename)
            {
               
                try
                {              
                    StreamReader SR;
                    string fileContents;
                    
                    SR=File.OpenText(filename);
                    fileContents=SR.ReadLine();
                    string numbers="";
                    int i = 0;
                        while(fileContents!=null)
                        {
                            i++;
                            numbers += fileContents.Substring(6, 10);
                            numbers += "\n";
                            
                            fileContents=SR.ReadLine();
                        }
                    SR.Close();
    
    
                            
                    //send out email
                    System.Net.Mail.MailMessage message = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage();
                    message.To.Add("myEmailAddress@someplace.com");
                    message.To.Add("myEmailAddress@someplace.com");
                    message.Subject = "Your numbers";
                    message.From = new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("myEmailAddress@someplace.com");
                    message.Body = "Here's youre numbers"+ numbers;
                    System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient smtp = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("mysmtpclient.location.anotherlocation.net");
                    smtp.Send(message);
                    
                }       
    
                    
                
                catch (Exception e)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("The send email process failed: {0}", e.ToString());
                }
    
                
    
    
            }
        }
