No difference with ASP.NET asynchronous email

Hi, I was making some upgrades to my code for emails to be sent asynchronously however I notice there is no difference in the delay after the user click s the send button.

This is the normal code

  Dim mail As New MailMessage()
        mail.From = New MailAddress(Label9.Text)
        mail.To.Add(Label9.Text)

        'set the content
        mail.Subject = "Normal"

        mail.IsBodyHtml = True

        'send the message
        Dim smtp As New SmtpClient("smtpserver") '
        smtp.Send(mail)

Open in new window


This is the new asynchronous method;

 Dim mailMessage As New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage

        mailMessage.From = New MailAddress(Label9.Text)
        mailMessage.To.Add("itsupport@seabrookcrisps.com")

        mailMessage.Subject = "Async Email"

        mailMessage.IsBodyHtml = True
        mailMessage.Body = "Test"

        Dim smtpClient As New SmtpClient()
        Dim userState As Object = mailMessage

        'Attach event handler for async callback
        AddHandler smtpClient.SendCompleted, AddressOf SmtpClient_OnCompleted

        Try
            'Send the email asynchronously
            smtpClient.SendAsync(mailMessage, userState)
        Catch smtpEx As SmtpException
            'Error handling here
        Catch ex As Exception
            'Error handling here
        End Try

Open in new window


Any ideas?

send a test email asynchronously, following the steps in the debug mode, and view the actual email received from the process
