You MUST use VB6 ?!
Private Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs)
   Dim mail As New MailMessage()
   mail.To = ""
   mail.From = ""
   mail.Subject = "this is a test email."
   mail.Body = "Some text goes here"
   mail.Fields.Add("", "1") 'basic authentication
   mail.Fields.Add("", "my_username_here") 'set your username here
   mail.Fields.Add("", "super_secret") 'set your password here
   SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "" 'your real server goes here
End Sub 'Page_Load

Dim a As String

Dim errorBool As Boolean

On eror GoTo Errorhandler

Set m_objCDO = CreateObject("CDO.Message")

Set m_objCDOcon = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")

Const cdoSendUsingMethod = ""

Const cdoSendUsingPort = 2

Const cdoSMTPServer = ""

Const cdoSMTPServerPort = ""

Const cdoSMTPConnectionTimeout = ""

Const cdoSMTPAuthenticate = ""

Const cdoBasic = 1

Const cdoSendUserName = ""

Const cdoSendPassword = ""

        'Sending email notification

Set Fields = m_objCDOcon.Fields

'Setting up Message parameters

      With Fields

      .Item(cdoSendUsingMethod) = cdoSendUsingPort

      'Replace with your SMTP server

      .Item(cdoSMTPServer) = txtEmailServer.Value

      .Item(cdoSMTPServerPort) = CInt(txtServerport)

      .Item(cdoSMTPConnectionTimeout) = 100

      'Only used if SMTP server requires Authentication

      If chkLogin = -1 Then

      .Item(cdoSMTPAuthenticate) = cdoBasic

      .Item(cdoSendUserName) = txtLogin

      .Item(cdoSendPassword) = txtPassword

      End If


       End With


       'Passing parameters to message object

       Set m_objCDO.Configuration = m_objCDOcon


    With m_objCDO

        'Replace with email you wish the message to be sent to

        .To = txtTo

        If Not (txtCC.Value = "") Then

        End If

        If Not (txtBCC.Value = "") Then

        .BCC = txtBCC

        End If

        'Replace with email you wish the message to be from

        .From = txtFrom


        ' Attachment using known static physical path

        '.AddAttachment "c:\Multiping.xls"

        '.AddAttachment Server.MapPath("images/asp101-100x30.gif")

        ' Attachment added directly from a URL

                'Replace with subject

        'Replace with information you want to be sent

        If Not (txtMessage.Value = "") Then

        .HTMLBody = txtMessage

        End If

If txtTo.Value = "" Or IsNull(txtTo) Then

    For i = 1 To CInt(txtNumber)



    a = MsgBox("Your Message has been sent", vbInformation, "Message Sent")

End If
