You can send mail in HTML format like this

MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
mail.To = "";
mail.From = "";
mail.Subject = "this is a test email.";
mail.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Html;
mail.Body = "this is my test email body.<br><b>this part is in bold</b>";
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "localhost";  //your real server goes here
SmtpMail.Send( mail );

The easiest way to send formatted email is to send it as HTML. There is an extended RichTextBox which accepts and generates HTML here: An extended RichTextBox to save and load "HTML lite" files[^]

if you have to send formatted mail then use HTML format. it will allow you to format your text like webPage formatting.
mail.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Html

This solution is for .NET core:
mail.IsBodyHtml = true;
