Dim address5 As Uri = New Uri("mailto:user@contoso.com?subject=uri")
If address5.Scheme = Uri.UriSchemeMailto Then
  outputBlock.Text &= "Uri is an email address"
  outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf
End If
Uri address5 = new Uri("mailto:user@contoso.com?subject=uri");
if (address5.Scheme == Uri.UriSchemeMailto) 
    outputBlock.Text += "Uri is an email address\n";
Uri address3 = new Uri("mailto:user@contoso.com?subject=uri");
if (address3.Scheme == Uri.UriSchemeMailto)
