Sending internally? Chek if your Firewall letting to use the smtp.

Also there doesn't appear to be any login info there.

        Dim mail As New MailMessage()
        Dim SmtpServer As New SmtpClient
        SmtpServer.Credentials = New Net.NetworkCredential("senders_mail_address@gmail.com", "senders_mail_address_password")
        SmtpServer.Port = 587
        SmtpServer.Host = "smtp.gmail.com"
        SmtpServer.EnableSsl = True
        SmtpServer.EnableSsl = True
        mail.From = New MailAddress("senders_mail_address@gmail.com")
        mail.Subject = "Mail_Subject_Here"
        mail.Body = TextBox1.Text ' or text what you want to write or get from

Imports System.Net.Mail
Public Class Form1

Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    Dim EmailMessage As New MailMessage()
        EmailMessage.From = New MailAddress("Your Gmail account")
        EmailMessage.To.Add("Your email account")
        EmailMessage.Subject = "The Subject"
        EmailMessage.Body = "Put the message here"
        Dim SMTP As New SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com")
        SMTP.Port = 587
        SMTP.EnableSsl = True
        SMTP.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential("Gmail account", "Gmail password")
    Catch ex As Exception
    End Try
End Sub

End Class
