I'm not sure that GC would matter very much in such a simple app.

But, it's either a call to Dispose on your SmtpClient after you're done using it:


or use a using:

using (SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient
    Host = "",
    Port = 587,
    Credentials = new NetworkCredential("", "password"),
    EnableSsl = true

The using will take care of calling Dispose for you.

Also, don't forget that there's a convenience method on the SmtpClient, if you don't need anything fancy on the message like HTML formatting or attachments.

smtp.Send(from, to, subject, body);
