Default Building an Email Submission Form

The book so doesn't cover this and I can't find the articles online helpful at all when trying to build a simple form on an ASP.NET 2.0 that takes name, email, etc and then emails me the data when the button is clicked. Sheesh. I am a novice, but most of what I am seeing looks incomplete. I need help. Here is the current form code...

                    <div id="REQUESTFORM" class="formbox">
                        <img align="right" src="images/CandAPlumbing_03.jpg" /><br />
                        <center><asp:TextBox ID="ZipCode" runat="server">Type Your Zip Code</asp:TextBox><br />
                            <asp:DropDownList ID="PlumbingNeed" runat="server" Width="156px">
                            </asp:DropDownList><br />
                            <asp:TextBox ID="FirstName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><br />
                            <asp:TextBox ID="LastName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><br />
                            <asp:TextBox ID="Phone" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><br />
                            <asp:TextBox ID="Email" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><br />
                            <asp:Button ID="submission" runat="server" Text="Submit" OnClick="submission_Click" />

My issue is the code behind. I am using the code-behind page and that is where I get totally lost and all the results I find on web searches are not helpful. I am using C# and have GoDaddy as my host for dev, but that will change when I am done.

Can anyone help me on the getting this thing to email me? Once I learn the how to and why, I should be OK in the future, but what I have seen usually skips a step or slice of code hence losing me in the process.

Not sure what your search critera is but Google has a quarter of a million results on this topic:


And this article is pretty much to the point:

The aspalliance link is in VB, not C# and that is part of the problem. I find more VB than c# and the C# ones just aren't helpful. I guess I am looking for a full template of what the codebehind should look like, and what each part does. I'm still really green with some of this stuff that requires lots of C# coding.
