Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public MailMessage Message { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Net.Mail.MailMessage
A MailMessage containing the message contents.

The Message property returns the MailMessage object that contains the e-mail message data. The Message property is read-only; however, you can use the MailMessage object that it returns to modify the properties of the e-mail message.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Message property in an e-mail message event handler to change the contents of the message before it is sent.
