This will not work. ( mail.To.Add = textEmailAdd.Text;)

What am I doing wrong?
MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
                mail.From = new MailAddress("do-not-reply@test.com");
                mail.To.Add = textEmailAdd.Text;
                mail.Subject = "Test E-Mail";
                mail.Body = html;
                mail.IsBodyHtml = true;
                SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("test.smtp.com");
                smtp.Send(mail);

sorry wp and Jaime... but for future if anyone asks this, the Add option of the MailMessage object is a function... so you have to call it as such, and it takes a MailAddress var ...

cheers!
