I have an C# console application that quieres a database to get the names of sales people in different departments to send them emails. However the emails are not being sent because the TO and CC field are not in the correct email format.
EX: Sales prerson name: John Smith -> from Query in stored proc
John Smith needs to be in this format so that he can get the email: jsmith@companyA.com.

What I am currently doing is get the name and then adding the @companyA.com which is not the correct format to send and email.
My Code is listed below --- Please help!

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Net.Mail;
using System.Net;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Data.Sql;
using System.Data.SqlTypes;

namespace EmailAEConsoleApp

        {
            SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection("Data Source=ServerName;Initial Catalog=DataBaseName;User ID=ID;Password=Password");
            SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("StoredProcName", conn);

            try
            {
                command.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

                //Add data to DataTable
                DataTable dtbItems = new DataTable();
                conn.Open();

                using (SqlDataAdapter sda = new SqlDataAdapter(command))
                    sda.Fill(dtbItems);
                {
                    //GATHER OPP DATA
                    {
                        //Loop thru all the properties
                        foreach (DataRow row in dtbItems.Select())
                        {
                            string oppSalesPersonTeamAName = Convert.ToString(row["salespersonATeamName"]);
                            string oppSalesPersonATeamManagerName = Convert.ToString(row["salespersonAManagerName"]);

                                mailAE.IsBodyHtml = true;
                                mailAE.BodyEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF32;

                                smtp.Send(mailAE);
                            }

so, you need to transform "John Smith" into "jsmith" ?

you could do this in the stored procedure or in the c# code, nothing too complex?
find the first space, and from that part:
* left to it, take only the first character, lowercase
* all right to it, lowercase
could be done with regular expression or with "brute force" code:
string short_name = oppSalesPersonTeamAName.Substring(0,1).ToLower() + oppSalesPersonTeamAName.Substring(oppSalesPersonTeamAName.IndexOf(" ")+1).ToLower();
