        MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
        //mail.To.Add("Another Email ID where you wanna send same email");
        mail.From = new MailAddress("");
        mail.Subject = txtSubject.Text;

        mail.IsBodyHtml = true;
        SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
        smtp.Host = ""; //Or Your SMTP Server Address
        smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("", "abcd123");
        smtp.EnableSsl = true;

<td>Password </td>

But i got this error "
A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (txtBody="<html>
Description: Request Validation has detected a potentially dangerous client input value, and processing of the request has been aborted. This value may indicate an attempt to compromise the security of your application, such as a cross-site scripting attack. You can disable request validation by setting validateRequest=false in the Page directive or in the configuration section. However, it is strongly recommended that your application explicitly check all inputs in this case.

you got to send a test email? Without taking the html, just the same text
