Mail Form Drop down

I have a drop down selection for the person to select the country and the recipient to receive it but not sure how to put in the mailMessage.Body = and I tried "<b>Country : </b>" + txtddlCountries.Text + "<br/>" but that does send it. Not sure what to use.

Protected Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
            Dim mailMessage As New MailMessage()
            mailMessage.From = New MailAddress("")
            mailMessage.Subject = txtSubject.Text

            mailMessage.Body = "<b>Sender Name : </b>" + txtname.Text + "<br/>" + "<b>Sender Email : </b>" + txtEmail.Text + "<br/>" + "<b>Phone : </b>" + txtPhone.Text + "<br/>" + "<b>Subject : </b>" + txtSubject.Text + "<br/>" + "<b>Company : </b>" + txtCompany.Text + "<br/>" + "<b>Items Being Shipped : </b>" + txtItembeingshipped.Text + "<br/>" + "<b>How fragile is the shipment? : </b>" + txtHowfragileistheshipment.Text + "<br/>" + "<b>What are the dimensions of the shipment? : </b>" + txtWhatarethedimensionsoftheshipment.Text + "<br/>" + "<b>How much does shipment weigh? : </b>" + txtHowmuchdoesshipmentweigh.Text + "<br/>" + "<b>Comments : </b>" + txtComments.Text
            mailMessage.IsBodyHtml = True

            Dim smtpClient As New SmtpClient("", 25)

            Label1.Text = "Thanks for contacting us"
            Label1.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Blue

            txtname.Enabled = False
            txtEmail.Enabled = False
            txtComments.Enabled = False
            txtSubject.Enabled = False
            Button1.Enabled = False
        Catch generatedExceptionName As Exception
            ' Log - Event Viewer or table 
            Label1.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Blue
            Label1.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red
            Label1.Text = "There is an unknown problem. Please try later"
        End Try
    End Sub

.SelectedValue instead of .Text

I still get this…Compiler Error Message: BC30451: Name 'txtddlCountries' is not declared.

Without seeing the HTML markup, I’d guess that it should be ddlCountries instead of txtddlCountries

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCountries" runat="server" Height="23px" OnSelectedIndexChanged="ddlCountries_SelectedIndexChanged"

That confirms it. You have txtddlCountries in your code but your HTML clearly indicates it is ddlCountries.
