Hi

I am using the following code to send an email

But I am getting runtime error

Can you please tell me the reason
MailMessage message = new MailMessage();
        message.From = new MailAddress("sender@domain.com");
        message.To.Add(new MailAddress(MailTo));
        message.Subject = Subject;
        message.Body = Body.ToString();
        
        SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("localhost");                       
        client.EnableSsl = true;
        client.Send(message);
