I want to send emails from my web. For this I use mailSettings in web.config
<system.net>
    <mailSettings>
      <smtp deliveryMethod="Network" from="me@me.com">
        <network
           host="mail.me.com"
           port="25"
           userName="me@me.com"
           password="abcd" />
      </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
  </system.net>

In the button I use next code:

       Dim mymessage As MailMessage = New MailMessage()
        mymessage.Subject = "Hello"
        mymessage.Body = "Hola from me.com " 
         mymessage.From =   New MailAddress("me@me.com", "me.com")
        mymessage.To.Add(New MailAddress(TextBox1.Text))
        Dim mysmtpclient As SmtpClient = New SmtpClient()
        mysmtpclient.Send(mymessage)

everything works fine except I would like to change the font and font size of the text in my body email.

Is there any way to do this? Thanks

I would suggest the folowing :

If you send the Mail like this it's a automaticaly send as a  Textmail and then it's not possible
Or you make it a HTML-Mail using simple tags

mymessage.Body = "<span style=""color:red;font-weight:bold;"">pretty colors!!</span>"
This way you can use styles or inner CSS in your mail

If I change my code:
mymessage.Body = "Hello"

by

mymessage.Body = "<span style=""color:red;font-weight:bold;"">pretty colors!!</span>"  &  "Hello"

the mails I send looks like:

<span style="color:red;font-weight:bold;">pretty colors!!</span>Hello

is there anything else I have to add or change, thanks.

It might help to use

mymessage.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Html

ok, I found the solution is to use:
 mymessage.IsBodyHtml = True

but somebody can send me an example of the code I need to use in html (I don´t know html)

just to send the text in courier new font

My problem is very easy I think, I need to send mails (I have it and it works) but the font must be courier new instead the default font.

Short :

mymessage.IsBodyHtml = True
mymessage.Body = "<span style=""font-family:courier;"">pretty colors!!</span>"  &  "Hello";


using styles and setting the Font family:
