// Create the request.
DeliverPromoteEmailRequest deliverEmailRequest = new DeliverPromoteEmailRequest
    Subject = "SDK Sample Email",
    To = emailContact.EMailAddress1,
    From = emailSender.InternalEMailAddress,
    Bcc = String.Empty,
    Cc = String.Empty,
    Importance = "high",
    Body = "This message will create an email activity.",
    MessageId = Guid.NewGuid().ToString(),
    SubmittedBy = "",
    ReceivedOn = DateTime.Now

// We won't attach a file to the email, but the Attachments property is required.
deliverEmailRequest.Attachments = new EntityCollection(new ActivityMimeAttachment[0]);
deliverEmailRequest.Attachments.EntityName = ActivityMimeAttachment.EntityLogicalName;                    

// Execute the request.
DeliverPromoteEmailResponse deliverEmailResponse = (DeliverPromoteEmailResponse)_serviceProxy.Execute(deliverEmailRequest);

// Verify the success.

// Define an anonymous type to define the possible values for
// email status
var EmailStatus = new
    Draft = 1,
    Completed = 2,
    Sent = 3,
    Received = 3,
    Canceled = 5,
    PendingSend = 6,
    Sending = 7,
    Failed = 8,

// Query for the delivered email, and verify the status code is "Sent".
ColumnSet deliveredMailColumns = new ColumnSet("statuscode");
Email deliveredEmail = (Email)_serviceProxy.Retrieve(Email.EntityLogicalName, deliverEmailResponse.EmailId, deliveredMailColumns);

_emailId = deliveredEmail.ActivityId.Value;

if (deliveredEmail.StatusCode.Value == EmailStatus.Sent)
    Console.WriteLine("Successfully created and delivered the e-mail message.");
