it is quiet easy, you can do it with pure HTML by setting the target of a form to an email. Have a look to this example:

All you have to do is to use System.Net.Mail namespace.
Default.aspx.cs:
using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Net.Mail;
 
public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page 
{
        protected void btSend_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
	{
		// Instantiate a new instance of MailMessage
		MailMessage mailMessage = new MailMessage();
		// Set the sender address of the mail message (it should be some of your mailboxes)
		mailMessage.From = new MailAddress("FromMailbox@mailbox.com");
		// Set the recepient address of the mail message
		mailMessage.To.Add(new MailAddress("ToMailbox.jura@mailbox.com"));
		mailMessage.Subject = "E-mail from: " + tbUserName.Text;
		// Set the body of the mail message
		mailMessage.Body = tbBody.Text;
		// Instantiate a new instance of SmtpClient
		SmtpClient smptClient = new SmtpClient("SmtpClientNameOrIP");
		// Send the mail message
		smptClient.Send(mailMessage);
	}
}
 
Defualt.aspx:
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"  CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
		<asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text="Username:"></asp:Label>
		<br />
		<asp:TextBox ID="tbUserName" runat="server" Width="200px"></asp:TextBox>
		<br />
		<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Message:"></asp:Label>&nbsp;<br />
		<asp:TextBox ID="tbBody" runat="server" Height="151px" Width="200px"></asp:TextBox>&nbsp;
		<br />
		<asp:Button ID="btSend" runat="server" OnClick="btSend_Click" Text="Send" /></div>
    </form>
</body>

The solution I presented is using your smtp server, so it is sent from your account. I used this with MS Exchange Server account, but you can use it as well to configure it with hotmail, yahoo, gmail as well.
In code snippet you can find solution with gmail example.
You can see extra three properties: Credentials, EnableSsl and Port which you have to configure.
	protected void btSend_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
	{
		// Instantiate a new instance of MailMessage
		MailMessage mailMessage = new MailMessage();
		// Set the sender address of the mail message
		mailMessage.From = new MailAddress("username@gmail.com");
		// Set the recepient address of the mail message
		mailMessage.To.Add(new MailAddress("ToMailbox.jura@mailbox.com")); //ToMailbox.jura@mailbox.com
		mailMessage.Subject = "E-mail from: " + tbUserName.Text;
		// Set the body of the mail message
		mailMessage.Body = tbBody.Text;
		// Instantiate a new instance of SmtpClient
		SmtpClient smptClient = new SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com");
		smptClient.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("username", "password");
		smptClient.EnableSsl = true;
		smptClient.Port = 587;
		// Send the mail message
		smptClient.Send(mailMessage);
	}

This is only an example. In order to use it, you have to add a button. Then create Onclick command for your button, and copy the code from my btSend_Click method into the method that will be created. In examples code there are usually bindings to different methods. So you have to use examples in a smart way. I can't write all for you. But after some time of coding you will become familiar with all of these.
