    How to setup with network credential

    Hi, I'm trying to set up Serilog to send email + file logging. I use mailjet as my email server and I'm not able to set it up correctly with networkcredentials. Here is my config (with personnal data removed).

    <add key="serverUrl" value="localhost"/>
    <add key="serilog:using:Email" value="Serilog.Sinks.Email" />
    <add key="serilog:write-to:Email.fromEmail" value="emailfrom"/>
    <add key="serilog:write-to:Email.toEmail" value="emailto" />
    <add key="serilog:write-to:Email.mailServer" value="" />
    <add key="serilog:enrich:with-property:environment" value="Localhost" />
    <add key="serilog:write-to:Email.port" value="587"/>
    <add key="serilog:write-to:Email.networkCredentials" value="'username':'username' 'password':'password'"/>
    <add key="serilog:write-to:Email.EnableSsl" value="true"/>
    <add key="serilog:write-to:Email.mailSubject" value="[{environment} - {MachineName}]" />
    <add key="serilog:write-to:Email.outputTemplate" value="{Timestamp:yyyy-MM-dd  HH:mm:ss}:: [{SourceContext} {NewLine}{Level:u3} - {Message:lj}{NewLine}{Exception}{SourceContext}]" />
    <add key="serilog:write-to:Email.restrictedToMinimumLevel" value="Error" />

    I don,t knw what I'm doing wrong with this. If i use another smtp (Email.mailServer) that doesn't need credentials, it works, but i can't use this one in production.

    For future reference:

    I've used the Nlog sink and setup the emails in there.

    We used the following config settings: Serilog.user.config:

      <add key="serilog:using:NLog" value="Serilog.Sinks.NLog" />
        <add key="serilog:write-to:NLog.restrictedToMinimumLevel" value="Error" />
        <add key="serilog:write-to:NLog.outputTemplate" value="{Message:lj}{NewLine}{Timestamp:yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss,fff} [P{ProcessId}/D{AppDomainId}/T{ThreadId}] {Log4NetLevel} {SourceContext}{NewLine}{Exception}" />

    Web.config: We use a appsetting to check on what environment the error is thrown <add key="Environment" value="Environment" />

      <target name="errormail" type="Mail" layout="${exception} on ${appsetting:Environment} - ${message} " subject="Error on Site name ${appsetting:Environment} environment" to="[email protected]" useSystemNetMailSettings="true" />
      <logger name="*" minlevel="Info" writeTo="errormail" />

    Register the nlog config in configsections:

        <section name="nlog" type="NLog.Config.ConfigSectionHandler, NLog" />

    Hope this will help anyone.
