How to call asp.net GridView's column into vb.net code?

Hello experts,

I have an asp.net database, with email field. And, now I want to get that field, gridview's email column, into vb.net code. I have a code for sending mail, and want to replace Send To(test@yahoo.com) with that field.

Dim Email As New MailMessage("test@gmail.com", "test@yahoo.com", "TEST", body)

Open in new window

Thank you in advance for help to anyone.

If there are multiple records then something like this:
For Each row As GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
            Dim Email As New MailMessage("test@yahoo.com", row.Cells("YourEmailColumnName").ToString, "TEST", body)

Open in new window

If there is only one record in grid then:
Dim Email As New MailMessage("test@yahoo.com", GridView1.Rows(0).Cells("YourEmailColumnName").ToString, "TEST", body)

Open in new window

Thank you for reply. I have add your solution, but now get this code error:

Value of type 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.TableCellCollection' cannot be converted to 'String'.

For info my code is beggins with:
Imports System.Net.Mail
Partial Class details
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

Any idea?

Oh, ignore abow message. I didnt ad ToString.

But, still my email form does not send message os I would like to give a picture how my database is design, and work.
1. - From Search.aspx page I have gridview which is filtering by a few Dropdownlists.
    - When select a record from gridview it jump to another page Details.aspx.
2. - Details.aspx contain more informations about this select record.
    - in the end of page I have mail form. First field of this form is EmailGridview2 for which I have send this help (see printscreen).
3. This is my Send mail code:
Protected Sub sendmail(ByVal from As String, ByRef body As String)
        Dim Email As New MailMessage("test@gmail.com", EmailGridView2.Rows(0).Cells("email").ToString, "Subject Testi", body)

        Dim smtpclient As New SmtpClient
        smtpclient.Host = "smtp.gmail.com"
        smtpclient.EnableSsl = True

        Dim credentials As New System.Net.NetworkCredential("SmtpUserID", "SmtpPassword")
        smtpclient.Credentials = credentials

        lblValidation.Text = "Success"
        lblValidation.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.DarkGreen
        txtCaptcha.Text = ""
    End Sub

Open in new window

4. I'm still learning asp.net vb.net programming, and maybe do not understand some things. And I hope that I have used right solution, as Detail.aspx display only 1 record. So, I have used your second solution.
