create 4 textboxes for to, from,subject & message. Dot Net has provided us a class System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient. with the help of this class we can send the email.

If your company have an email server you require to change following:
Gmails SMTP port is 587.

Give your username and password("username@gmail.com", "pwd") to make following code workable.

            mailmessage.Body = txtBody.Text;
            mailmessage.From = new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress( txtFrom.Text);
            mailmessage.To.Add(txtTo.Text);
            mailmessage.Subject = txtSubject.Text;
            mailmessage.IsBodyHtml = true;
            System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient smt = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient();
            smt.UseDefaultCredentials = false;

            smt.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("username@gmail.com", "pwd");
