{
   MailAddress^ from = gcnew MailAddress( L"ben@contoso.com" );
   MailAddress^ to = gcnew MailAddress( L"Jane@contoso.com" );
   MailMessage^ message = gcnew MailMessage( from,to );
   message->Subject = L"Using the SmtpClient class.";
   message->Body = L"Using this feature, you can send an e-mail message from an application very easily.";
   SmtpClient^ client = gcnew SmtpClient( server );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Sending an e-mail message to {0} by using SMTP host {1} port {2}.", to, client->Host, client->Port );
   client->Send( message );
   client->~SmtpClient();
