MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();

mail.To.Add("to@gmail.com");

mail.From = new MailAddress("from@gmail.com");

mail.Subject = "Test Email";

string Body = "Welcome to Mukund's Blog";

mail.Body = Body;

mail.IsBodyHtml = true;

SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();

smtp.Host = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["SMTP"];
