I have this code and not sure what is wrong with it: is the to: in WebMail.Send declared correctly?

          var message = "<p>Details of email</p>";
            message += "Title: " + Request["title"] + "<br />";
            message += "Description: " + Request["description"] + "<br />";
            message += "Duration: " + Request["duration"] + " days<br />";
            message += "Price: " + String.Format("{0:c}", Request["price"].AsFloat()) + "<br />";
            message += "Condition: " + Request["condition"];
                  [b]  to : "xxxx@comcast.net",[/b]
                    subject: "Advertisement confirmation",
                    body: message,
                    isBodyHtml: true
            result = "Your advertisement details have been sent to you by email";

you can use class System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient();

protected void SendMail()
    // Gmail Address from where you send the mail
    var fromAddress = "Gmail@gmail.com";
    // any address where the email will be sending
    var toAddress = YourEmail.Text.ToString();
    //Password of your gmail address
    const string fromPassword = "Password";
     // Passing the values and make a email formate to display
    string subject = YourSubject.Text.ToString();
    string body = "From: " + YourName.Text + "\n";
    body += "Email: " + YourEmail.Text + "\n";
    body += "Subject: " + YourSubject.Text + "\n";
    body += "Question: \n" + Comments.Text + "\n";
    // smtp settings
    var smtp = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient();
        smtp.Host = "smtp.gmail.com";
        smtp.Port = 587;
        smtp.EnableSsl = true;
        smtp.DeliveryMethod = System.Net.Mail.SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
        smtp.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(fromAddress, fromPassword);
        smtp.Timeout = 20000;
    // Passing values to smtp object
    smtp.Send(fromAddress, toAddress, subject, body);
