Mostly I'm lazy today and don't want to think.

How do I trap exceptions from System.Web.MAIL.SmtpMail and put them in a string format.

Try
...
Catch ex as smtp
Catch ex as exception
   Console.Writeline(ex.mesage & " : " & ex.innerexception.tostring)
End Try

----------------- This can't be what you want; would be way too easy.

Try
   MyCode
Catch ex as System.Exception
      'ex.ToString   <---- this makes the exception to string then you can do whatever you want
      msgbox( ex.ToString )
End Try

Remove my "Catch ex as smtp" --> that was supposed to have been cut out by me.  Whoops.
