i received this error when populating the dropdownlist. any suggestion pls?


the scenario is, a user is sending information from a c# page and will send it to the email provided.

heres the code:

protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        MailMessage Msg = new MailMessage();
        Msg.From = txtEmail.Text;
        Msg.To = txtTo.Text;
        Msg.Subject = txtSubject.Text;
        Msg.Body = "Name:" + txtFrom.Text + "Department:" + drpDep.Text;

        SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "";
        Msg = null;
        //Page.RegisterStartupScript("UserMsg", "<script>alert('Mail sent thank you...');if(alert){ window.location='/ETC/';}</script>");
    catch (Exception ex)
        Console.WriteLine("{0} Exception caught.", ex);

System.Web.UI.WebControls.DropDownList is not a exception message. The given code also looks completely unrelated. It would make sense populating the DropDownList goes wrong in the coce actually populating it, this code seems completely unrelated.
