If you want an examination of the code then watch my YouTube video in the article. Else fell free to copy and paste the code that sends an email.

Remember to change the smtpClient to match your own mailserver settings and edit the message.To() and the message.From().

The SendMail method takes three parameters which is name, email and message. You can always add more parameters to the method to fit your needs.

There are two using statements you need to implement for make the code run properly.

using System.Net;
using System.Net.Mail;

public bool SendMail(string name, string email, string message1)
    MailMessage message = new MailMessage();
    SmtpClient smtpClient = new SmtpClient();
    message.From = new MailAddress("");
    message.Subject = "Test email";
    message.IsBodyHtml = true;
    message.Body = "<p>Name: " + name + "</p>" + "<p>Email: " + email + "</p>" + "<p>Message: " + message1 + "</p>";

    smtpClient.Port = 587;
    smtpClient.Host = "";
    smtpClient.EnableSsl = true;
    smtpClient.UseDefaultCredentials = false;
    smtpClient.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("Username", "Password");
    smtpClient.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
    return true;
