How would I write a function to delete from a sql table in the code behind?

Would this work?

protected void DeleteRecordByID(string EMail)
{
String objConnection = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MyConnection"].ToString();
String strSQL = "Delete from dbname.dbo.tblname where email ='" + EMail + "'";
SqlDataAdapter objAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, objConnection);
DataSet dataSet = new DataSet();
objAdapter.Fill(dataSet, "elist");
}

It would but its a bit overkill.

protected void DeleteRecordByID(string EMail)
{
    String objConnection = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MyConnection"].ToString();
    String strSQL = "Delete from dbname.dbo.tblname where email ='" + EMail + "'";

    SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(strSQL, objConnection);
    objConnection.Open();

    cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

    cn.Close();
}

i got errors on:

SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(strSQL, objConnection);
1. The best overloaded method match for 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand.SqlCommand(string, System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection)' has some invalid arguments
2. Argument '2': cannot convert from 'string' to 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection'

objConnection.Open();
'string' does not contain a definition for 'Open'

objConnection.Close();
'string' does not contain a definition for 'Close'

oops, didn't read your code properly. It was the "obj" prefix on your connection string that threw me:

protected void DeleteRecordByID(string EMail)
{
    String strConnection = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MyConnection"].ToString();
    String strSQL = "Delete from dbname.dbo.tblname where email ='" + EMail + "'";

    SqlConnection objConnection = new SqlConnection(strConnection);
    SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(strSQL, objConnection);
    objConnection.Open();

    cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

    objConnection.Close();
}
