If you build a large site then you will be required to provide a facility for the users to contact the relevant department or web master through online form. This is the best way to prevent spam messages as users will not know the real e-mail id. The whole process of sending emails from an ASP.NET form has been simplified with the release of .NET Framework 4.5.

Look at the below figure where I added few Textbox controls.


You need to substitute FROM EMAIL ID, MAIL SERVER NAME, EMAIL ID and PASSWORD on the below code with relevant correct values.

Copy the code given below after providing correct values as mentioned above using Notepad, save it as an .aspx file and upload to your web server. The below code requires access to a shared Windows hosting server with ASP.NET 4.5:

<%@ Page Language="VB" %>
<%@ Import Namespace = "System.Net" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Net.Mail" %>
<script runat="server">  
    Protected Sub btnSubmit_Click1(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        Dim mail As New MailMessage()
        mail.From = New MailAddress("FROM EMAIL ID")
        mail.Subject = "Contact Form"
        mail.Body = txtName.Text & vbCrLf & txtComments.Text
        Dim smtp As New SmtpClient("MAIL SERVER NAME")
        smtp.Credentials = New NetworkCredential("EMAIL ID", "PASSWORD")
        lblStatus.Text = "Your data has been submitted successfully"
        txtName.Text = ""
    txtEmail.Text = ""
    txtComments.Text = ""
    End Sub
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>Contct Form Demo</title>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        Name -
        <asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <br />
        <br />
        Email -
        <asp:TextBox ID="txtEmail" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
         <asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularExpressionValidator1" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtEmail"
ErrorMessage="Please Enter Valid Email ID" ValidationExpression="\w+([-+.']\w+)*@\w+([-.]\w+)*\.\w+([-.]\w+)
        <br />
        <br />
        Comments -
        <asp:TextBox ID="txtComments" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine" Height="71px" Width="301px"></asp:TextBox>
        <br />
        <br />
        <asp:Label ID="lblStatus" runat="server"></asp:Label>
        <br />
        <br />
        <br />
        <asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" runat="server" Text="Submit" OnClick="btnSubmit_Click1" />
        <br />
        <br />


In the above code, I have enabled validation for E-mail ID field. This means that if you forgot to enter e-mail id in correct format you will not be able to submit the form.
