Thanks for your reply.  There seems to be a problem in the TrimNull function.  StrPtr is not declared anywhere in the code.  But TrimNull is call in the GetRegValue function.

I'm not getting a good feeling about this solution, at all. Looking into StrPtr, it's a VB6 function.

I did go into my registry to the mentioned registry entry and sure enough, found my "smtp" email address. If this is what you are looking for, just ignore all this VB6 crap about reading the registry and use the .net registry framework.
