Send asynchronous email in website

Hi!

I have some tasks in my website that sends emails.

The problem is that the email sending may be slow, forcing the user to be waiting, sometimes, too much.

How can I do something that do all the stuff and sends the email in background, without disturbing the normal system process.

Maybe using Asynchronous method to send email... I don't know.
I've tried this tutorial <http://www.asp.net/general/videos/how-do-i-send-email-asynchronously-with-aspnet> but it didn't worked. Actually, I'm not sure if it's what I need.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for reply!

I can't make this code work in C#, even changing the AddressOf to new EventHandler...

Why are you sending Parameters? for that use this

public void SendEmailInSeparateThread()
{
System.Threading.Thread t;
      try {
            t = new Thread(new ParameterizedThreadStart(SendEmail));
            t.Start(Param1,Param2);
      } catch (Exception ex) {
      }
}

Still not working... Method sendEMailContactForm has 4 arguments, all String
 
                 Thread t;
Error 5      t = new Thread(new ParameterizedThreadStart(this.sendEmailContactForm));
Error 6      t.Start("ok","ok","ok","ok");

Error      5      No overload for 'sendEmailContactForm' matches delegate 'System.Threading.ParameterizedThreadStart'

Error      6      No overload for method 'Start' takes 4 arguments

My mistake
Start cannot take multiple params, so you need to put your Params in ONE array, or ONE class and pass it

so instead of

                 Thread t;
Error 5      t = new Thread(new ParameterizedThreadStart(this.sendEmailContactForm));
Error 6      t.Start("ok","ok","ok","ok");


use
class MyParams
   public P1 as string
public P2 as string
public P3 as string
public P4 as string
end class
                 Thread t;
Error 5      t = new Thread(new ParameterizedThreadStart(this.sendEmailContactForm));
dim MP as MyParams
MP.P1 = "ok"
MP.P2 = "ok"
MP.P3 = "ok"
MP.P4 = "ok"
Error 6      t.Start(MP);

function sendEmailContactForm(MyPar as MyParams)
