         to.ToString(), client.Host, client.Port);

    try
    {
        client.Send(message);
    }
    catch (Exception ex)

            ex.ToString());
  }

Remarks

The To property is used to designate the addresses on the To line of an email message. To add a recipient to an email message, create a MailAddress for the recipient's address, and then add that object to the collection returned by this property.
