ASP.net password recovery - sending email

This can't be that hard. I've been looking at examples and still can't get password recovery working. I get

"Your attempt to retrieve your password was not successful. Please try again. "

This is what I have

<asp:PasswordRecovery ID="PasswordRecovery1" runat="server" onsendingmail="PasswordRecovery1_SendingMail"  >
  <UserNameTemplate>
       ....
          <asp:TextBox ID="UserName" CssClass="textbox" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
       .....
       <asp:Button ID="SubmitButton" runat="server" OnClick="test" CommandName="Submit" CssClass="signin_submit" Text="Submit" ValidationGroup="PasswordRecovery1" />

  </UserNameTemplate>
</asp:PasswordRecovery>


  protected void test(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string userid = string.Empty;
        try
        {
            var membershipUser = Membership.GetUser(PasswordRecovery1.UserName);
            if (membershipUser != null)
                userid = membershipUser.Email;
            PasswordRecovery1.MailDefinition.From = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["BDFrom"];
            PasswordRecovery1.MailDefinition.Subject = "Password Recovery email";

            
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {

        }
    }

////********and in webconfig

<system.net>
		<mailSettings>
			<smtp from="">
				<network host="myhost" password="pwd" userName="uname"/>
			</smtp>
		</mailSettings>
	</system.net>
