Rethrowing exception from a thread

Hi,

I created a web service that invokes  a thread that sends e-mails.
When the connection to the internet is terminated, this thread throws an exception.
I want to rethrow that exception to the client.
I tried to use the following code :

                         try
                        {
                            SmtpMail.Send(mailMessage);
                        }
                        catch (HttpException exc)
                        {
                            throw new HttpException(exc.GetHttpCode(), exc.Message);
                        }
but since we are in a thread, and nobody can catch the rethrown exception.
Please tell me how to throw an exception from a thread, so that it will can rethrown to the client.

Thanks
Michael

Try to invoke an event instead. Declare an event and invoke it instead of throwing an exception
