Not able to send values in the Body of email

Hello, i have the following code
$SiteName = ""
$SiteIP = ""
$ResolveDNS = Resolve-DnsName -DnsOnly
if (($ResolveDNS.Name -eq $SiteName) -And ($ResolveDNS.IPAddress -eq $SiteIP)) 	
        #Write-host "All is good"
Else {
	$enablemail = @()
	$enablemail = "yes"
	$smtpServer = "SMTPServer.corp.lcl"
	$mailfrom = "ResolveDNS@domain.lcl"
	$mailto = ""
	$replyto = ""
	#$mailTo = ""
	if ($enablemail -match "yes")
			$msg = New-Object Net.Mail.MailMessage
			$smtp = New-Object Net.Mail.smtpClient($smtpServer)
			$msg.From = $mailfrom
            $msg.ReplyTo = $replyto
			$msg.Subject = "Site: $SiteName Not Resolvable"
			$msg.Body = "Site: $SiteName Not Resolvable`nName: ($ResolveDNS).Name, TTL: ($ResolveDNS).TTL, IP Address: ($ResolveDNS).IPAddress"

Open in new window

But when i get the email, the body looks like the following:
Site: Not Resolvable
Name: (Microsoft.DnsClient.Commands.DnsRecord_A).Name, TTL: (Microsoft.DnsClient.Commands.DnsRecord_A).TTL, IP Address: (Microsoft.DnsClient.Commands.DnsRecord_A).IPAddress

Open in new window

It should bring the values from $ResolveDNS in the body of the email. Thoughts...?

Thanks for your help,

You need subexpression "$()" to access a variable's properties inside a string:
$msg.Body = "Site: $SiteName Not Resolvable`nName: $($ResolveDNS.Name), TTL: $($ResolveDNS.TTL), IP Address: $($ResolveDNS.IPAddress)"
