Email and ASP.net

I am writing my first ASP.net web application with Web Developer Express 2010 and MS SQL 2008 Express. I have built a page in which a user can input details of software that is required to be deployed, I would like to create a button with the code behind it to send an email with the details of the task that has just been input, or at the least an email to state their is a task waiting.

How can I do this ?

This is probably the easiest:

using System.Net.Mail;

MailMessage message = new MailMessage();
            message.From = new MailAddress("sender@mydomain.com");

            message.To.Add(new MailAddress("recipient1@mydomain.com"));
            message.To.Add(new MailAddress("recipient2@mydomain.com"));
            message.To.Add(new MailAddress("recipient3@mydomain.com"));

            message.CC.Add(new MailAddress("carboncopy@mydomain.com"));
            message.Subject = "This is my subject";
            message.Body = "This is the content";
            //message.IsBodyHtml = true;

            SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("smtp.mydomain.com");

Depending on the host you might need authentication:

   SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient();
   smtp.Host = "smtp.gmail.com";
   smtp.Port = 587;
   smtp.EnableSsl = true;
   smtp.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
   smtp.UseDefaultCredentials = false;
   smtp.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(fromAddress.Address,fromPassword);

  Dim message1 As New MailMessage("kns@kockw.com", TL_Email, "Temporary Gate Pass Request needs Approval", commen)
                    message1.IsBodyHtml = True

                    Dim emailClient As New SmtpClient("put your smtp")

'some time u need to provide some credintial like this
   '  Dim basicAuthenticationInfo As _
                    'New System.Net.NetworkCredential("your email", "your password")

                    '  emailClient.UseDefaultCredentials = False
                    '  emailClient.Credentials = basicAuthenticationInfo
