WP7 MSDN Resources you may have (Dis)missed

MSDN is an awesome resource, but often I forget how I got to a certain page with certain samples, or simply dismissed an interesting page. Therefore, I decided to compile a short list of pages you may have missed (even though they’re all accessible from the Main WP7 MSDN page), or ones that you should probably look at even if the title isn’t interesting ;). If you’d recommend a page here, feel free to comment and I’ll update the post.

    Hi Shree,
    I don’t believe SMTP is supported. However, you can use the EmailComposeTask method to send emails from your application.
