I am using VB for my ASP.Net website. I need to include line breaks in my email. However they are not being created. They are literally displaying in the email as "<br/><br/><br/>".      

   Dim thisMessage As String = "Email Content" + <br/> + <br/> + <br/> + "More Email Content"

   Dim mailMessage As System.Net.Mail.MailMessage = New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage()

        mailMessage.Subject = "An email"

        mailMessage.Body = thisMessage
       
        smtpclient.Send(mailMessage)
