I found this Email Sending Method on another EE post. It almost does the trick, except I would like to insert a string where 'content' currently is found.

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("mailto:me@mymail.com?subject=My Message Here&body=content");
'content' needs replaced with 'textBox1.Text.ToString()'

Do something like...

        private void button1_Click_1(object sender, EventArgs e)
            Email("me@mymail.com", "My Message Here", "content");          

        private void Email(String recipient, String subject, String body)
            System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("mailto:" + recipient + "?subject=" + subject + "&body=" + body);
