How do I add 'e-mail this article to a friend' functionality to my Web site?

I'm working on developing a Web site. I need to add "e-mail this article to a friend" functionality using ASP.NET. How do I go about doing that?
You have to use the System.Web.Mail namespace, which contains the MailMessage and SmtpMail classes to do the work.
MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();

mail.To = "dcazzulino@users.sf.net";
mail.From = "satisfiedreader@happycompany.net";
mail.Subject = "Thanks for your answers!";
mail.Body = "[Flattering  phrases to get faster answers next time...]";
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "smtp.happycompany.net";
SmtpMail.Send(mail);
