Hi. I ran the following code while debugging and then took it out but this event seems to be firing everytime I debug. Do I need to run code to stop this happening

Imports System.Web.SessionState
Imports System.Timers

Public Class Global_asax
    Inherits System.Web.HttpApplication

    Sub Application_Start(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        ' Fires when the application is started
        ' Code that runs on application startup
        Dim myTimer As New System.Timers.Timer()
        ' Set the Interval to 5 seconds (5000 milliseconds).
        myTimer.Interval = 5000
        myTimer.AutoReset = True
        AddHandler myTimer.Elapsed, New ElapsedEventHandler(AddressOf myTimer_Elapsed)
        myTimer.Enabled = True
    End Sub
    Public Sub myTimer_Elapsed(source As Object, e As System.Timers.ElapsedEventArgs)
        ' use your mailer code
        Dim sBody As String = "From Great Site"
        Dim objScheduleMail As New clsScheduleMail()
        objScheduleMail.SendScheduleMail("info@online-excel.com", "info@online-excel.com", "murbro9@yahoo.com", "", "Excel-Online enquiry", sBody)
    End Sub

No the Application_Start event will run every time you debug as essentially the application is starting for the first time when you debug. When deployed it will only run once when the application is started the first time a user requests a page.
