sending an email from a webform

I need to send a large list of emails from a webform by clicking a single
button. Microsoft's documentation for coding this seems straight forward
and I'm about to begin experimenting with their sample code (VB.NET). I
would like to know if it is possible to use HTML to format
the emails as opposed to just text, i.e. use a picture for the header,
specify fonts, bold text, center text etc. all from information stored in a
database.
Any examples or suggestions appreciated!
Thanks
Steven.

Steven,

There are a lot of samples for mail. To sent with a webform you can.

Use SMTP, that is using a mailserver (and not registrate the mails at client
side)

Use the default mail client, that is a very simple approach, however has
too very few possibilities what you can do and one of those which you cannot
is adding attachments.

I hope this gives an idea
