   aMessage.To = ToTextBox.Text;
   aMessage.Cc = CCTextBox.Text;
   aMessage.Bcc = BCCTextBox.Text;
   aMessage.Subject = SubjectTextBox.Text;
   aMessage.Body = MessageTextBox.Text;
// if an attachment file is indicated, create it and add it to the message
   if (AttachmentTextBox.Text.Length > 0)
      aMessage.Attachments.Add(new MailAttachment(AttachmentTextBox.Text, MailEncoding.Base64));

// Now send the message
    SmtpMail.Send(aMessage);

Hi,

If you check the below link, you can see that the To, Cc and Bcc properties are from type MaillAddressCollection.

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.mail.mailmessage.to(vs.80).aspx

This means that you first need to create an instance of the MailAddressCollection, add the recipients to it and then assign it to the MailMessage.

Greetz,

Geert
