What is the difference between:


//uses   ex

genFuncs.SendMessage("tom@buyersfund.com","Error deleting EML file in WindowsServiceTrackRequest CLASS:  ClassGetStatus Method:  DelFile","PATH:  " + sUri + "\n\n\nERROR MESSAGE:  " + ex);

and


//uses   ex.ToString()

genFuncs.SendMessage("tom@buyersfund.com","Error deleting EML file in WindowsServiceTrackRequest CLASS:  ClassGetStatus Method:  DelFile","PATH:  " + sUri + "\n\n\nERROR MESSAGE:  " + ex.ToString());



Will both work and look the same?

NOTE:    the var ex      is a variable of type Exception....as in:

catch(Exception ex)
{
genFuncs.SendMessage("tom@buyersfund.com","Error deleting EML file in WindowsServiceTrackRequest CLASS:  ClassGetStatus Method:  DelFile","PATH:  " + sUri + "\n\n\nERROR MESSAGE:  " + ex);
}


or


catch(Exception ex)
{
genFuncs.SendMessage("tom@buyersfund.com","Error deleting EML file in WindowsServiceTrackRequest CLASS:  ClassGetStatus Method:  DelFile","PATH:  " + sUri + "\n\n\nERROR MESSAGE:  " + ex.ToString());
}

I think that the both will work, but whether they look the same depends on the message content.
