I know this sounds strange, but I was having the same problem  and found
a blog on it. You need to be sure that there is an entry in the "from"
option. Also, it advised to set public variables in the class and
assign the public variable in the sendEmail property instead of setting
the to, from , body, etc through the code.

Our Exchange server  only accepts SMTP

configred, emails  flowed.
