C# Web Help with sending E-mail to multiple recipients

I am not able to get an e-mail sent to multiple recipients. I am using C# in VS 2003.

Here is the code:

MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
mail.To = "address1@somewhere.com;address2@somewhere.com ";
mail.From = "My Program";
mail.Subject = "Alert";
mail.Priority = MailPriority.High;
mail.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Text;
mail.Body = sMessage;
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "mymailserver.somewhere.com";

When using this the message gets sent to address1 and address3 but not address2. I have also tried using a comma in place of the semicolon with no luck. I am at a loss as I get no error message and everything I have looked up says that this is correct and should work. Any help would be apprectiated.

Well the MSDN on that isn't very good since they obsoleted it.
Their examples don't seem to lend it as a possibility that you can do multiple recipients though.
However using trickery I found this:
[quote=MSDN for System.Web.Mail.MailMessage.To]
Property Value
A semicolon-delimited list of e-mail addresses.

Are your addresses all valid?

This does work, I'd guess that Plater is right the problem is with the email address3. Try replacing it with your own - in fact you may want to ensure none of them are live or you may get accused of spamming :).
