I reckon it is a part of the eventhandler of the Postbutton_Click. You know who wrote the initial question, thus you have an e-mailaddress. You know what the answer is, because that should be entered in the database and you know who answered the question or posted a reply. Combine these three and you can easily send an e-mail using a SMTP-server of some kind.
