In my website I am sending email from localhost.
If I specify the email address to whom(e.g.; I want to send email it succeeds, but I would like to retreive the (var toAddress) value from the text box control.
If i do this it gives the error:
"The specified string is not in the form required for an e-mail address."
The code to send a email looks like this:
var fromAddress = new MailAddress("", "sarwar");
var toAddress = new MailAddress("GetValueFrom The Textbox","name");// Here I would like to get value from the text box.

const string fromPassword = "password"; 
const string subject = "lokman";
const string body = "i have done it";
var smtp = new SmtpClient
               Host = "",
               Port = 587,
               EnableSsl = true,
               DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network,
               UseDefaultCredentials = false,
               Credentials = new NetworkCredential(fromAddress.Address, fromPassword)
using (var message = new MailMessage(fromAddress, toAddress)
                         Subject = subject,
                         Body = body

In what line? Anyway, this is not the proper question. You as a user supply wrong string. Write a right one :-)

Assuming your users can type, all you have to do is execute the line:
toAddress = new MailAddress(myTextbox.Text);
before you create the new MailMessage.
[edit]Typo - forgot to change fixed string to use textbox content.[/edit]

"can you please edit my code"
Just wrap your computer up securely, and send it DHL or UPS to me, and I'll do what I can...
I think it will probably be quicker if you edit it yourself...:laugh:
Remember I can't see you code from here, so you have to think as well here - where is your textbox? What is it called? Where is your method? And what is in the textbox?

var smtp = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient();
       smtp.Host = "";
       smtp.Port = 587;
       smtp.EnableSsl = true;
       smtp.DeliveryMethod = System.Net.Mail.SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
       smtp.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(fromAddress, fromPassword);
       smtp.Timeout = 20000;
   // Passing values to smtp object
   smtp.Send(fromAddress, toAddress, subject, body);
Try this code, If its not working, let me know...

 public void Messegesend(string email,string firstname,string lastname,string messege)
                string messegebody = "Dear Admin  " + "\n" + messege + "\n Thanks \n " + firstname + " " + lastname + " \n" + email;
                System.Net.Mail.MailMessage mail = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage();
                SmtpClient SmtpServer = new SmtpClient("");
                mail.From = new MailAddress("");
                mail.Subject = "Bizstall Bevarage & Food";
                mail.Body = messegebody;

                SmtpServer.Port = 587;
                SmtpServer.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("sender_email", "sender_password");
                SmtpServer.EnableSsl = true;
            catch (Exception ex)
                string error = ex.ToString();

this toAddress should come from the textbox.text
