Hello CodeCall, I will be showing you how to send emails with VB

You will need:
2 Buttons
and 1 Textbox (2 optional if you want to make a login, error reporter)

Place 1 first Textbox on the form.

Then after resizing the textbox, add a button, change it to "Send Email" and add:
Dim smtpServer As New SmtpClient()
        Dim mail As New MailMessage()
        smtpServer.Credentials = New Net.NetworkCredential("[COLOR="Lime"]fertyl5@gmail.com[/COLOR]", "[COLOR="Lime"]fertyl200[/COLOR]")
        'using gmail
        smtpServer.Port = 587
        smtpServer.Host = "smtp.gmail.com"
        smtpServer.EnableSsl = True
        mail = New MailMessage()
        mail.From = New MailAddress("[COLOR="Lime"]fertyl5@gmail.com[/COLOR]")
        mail.Subject = ComboBox1.SelectedItem.ToString
        mail.Body = TextBox1.Text
        MsgBox("Mail Sent Succesfull!")

Everything that ive marked with red, those you need to change! if marked with green you dont need, only optional.

Then take this:
imports system.net.Mail
and put it over "Public Class Form1"

and you are done!

Debug the program and test it out, and remember the mail goes to the mail entered "mail.To.Add("Youremailhere@gmail.com")"


and now you are done!

Dont forget to be nice to me when writing back , Bye Bye!!:)

do you call this much better than mine? You don't even check if the addresses exists, and what if the mail wasn't sent "Succesfull!"?
