Formerly, I used my server as mail host and was sending emails via my own host. Now, I use Yandex as my mail server. I'm trying to send emails via Yandex SMTP. However, I could not achieve it. I get "the operation has timed out" message every time. I'm able to send & receive email with the same settings when I use Thunderbird. Hence, there is no issue with the account. I appreciate your guidance. You can see my code below:

EmailCredentials credentials = new EmailCredentials();
credentials.Domain = "domain.com";
credentials.SMTPUser = "email@domain.com";
credentials.SMTPPassword = "password";
int SmtpPort = 465;
string SmtpServer = "smtp.yandex.com";

System.Net.Mail.MailAddress sender = new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress(senderMail, senderName, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8);

System.Net.Mail.MailAddress recipient = new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress(recipientEmail, recipientName, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8);

System.Net.Mail.MailMessage email = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage(sender, recipient);

email.BodyEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
email.SubjectEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;

System.Net.Mail.AlternateView plainView = System.Net.Mail.AlternateView.CreateAlternateViewFromString(System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(mailBody, @"<(.|\n)*?>", string.Empty), null, MediaTypeNames.Text.Plain);

System.Net.Mail.AlternateView htmlView =  System.Net.Mail.AlternateView.CreateAlternateViewFromString(mailBody, null, MediaTypeNames.Text.Html);

email.AlternateViews.Clear();
email.AlternateViews.Add(plainView);
email.AlternateViews.Add(htmlView);
email.Subject = mailTitle;

System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient SMTP = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient();
SMTP.Host = SmtpServer;
SMTP.Port = SmtpPort;
SMTP.EnableSsl = true;
SMTP.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(credentials.SMTPUser, credentials.SMTPPassword);

SMTP.Send(email);
