I am using ASP.NET 3.5 (VB) to put a link in an email so a user can confirm their subscription.

I want the test link in the email to redirect to:


My code is:

Dim strURL As String = "UserAccountStatus.aspx?action={0}&id={1}"

Dim strDynamicURL As String = String.Format(strURL, "confirm", txtBid_User_ID.Text.ToString.Trim())


' I want to pass this in the email body:
strEmailBody &= "<a href=""<%= strDynamicURL %>""> test</a><br>"

I can't get the above quoted string to resolve correctly in the received email.

Can I do it this way?  Please be very specific in your answer and provide VB code sample.  Thanks.
