Hi Tulsi,

Take a look at page 660 for a concrete example. That code catches an SmtpException as well as a generic Exception. You could further divide this by catching SmtpFailedRecipientException and SmtpFailedRecipientsException:

To find out the Exceptions that can be thrown, consult the MSDN documentation. Here's an example of the Send method of the SmtpClient class:

In this case, I would probably just handle SmtpException as all you want to do is tell the user something went wrong while sending the message. The first three exceptions can typically be avoided by constructing a valid message object.

Hope this helps,
