Default email- from web form

I am trying to add email functionality to my web form..first is SMTP a good option..what are the disadvantes,advantages.

Also I have the following piece of code that sends email to one person ,cc,bcc.
How can I modify it to send it to a distribution list.

// Construct a new mail message and fill it with information from the form
   MailMessage aMessage = new MailMessage();
   aMessage.From = FromTextBox.Text;
   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


catch(Exception ex)

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


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.
