    MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();

    string to = txtMailTo.Text;
    string from = txtMailFrom.Text;
    string subject = txtMailSub.Text;
    string body = txtMailBody.Text;

    MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, to, subject, body);
    message.IsBodyHtml = true;

    SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient(Host, Port);
    client.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
    client.Send(message);
