How to set an text description to the 'From' object in the SMTP class?

Hi, I´m re-writing an application that used .NET mail class to send emails. I used to be able to be able to set a description for the sender besides the sender e-mail. See below the string "This is how I describe myself" Mail.From = New MailAddress("","This is how I describe myself") So in the email header in the from field I would then see ' - This is how I describe myself' So this is a snippet in VB.Net using componentpro mail API: ' Create a new instance of the Smtp class. Dim SMTPClient As New Smtp ' Connect to the server. SMTPClient.Connect(My.Settings.EmailServerAddress, My.Settings.EmailServerPort) ' Login to the server using NTLM authentication method. SMTPClient.Authenticate(My.Settings.EmailSenderAccount, My.Settings.EmailSenderAccountPassword, SmtpAuthenticationMethod.Auto) ' Create a new mail message. Dim msg As New MailMessage() msg.Subject = strSubject ' msg.BodyText = strMessage msg.From = "" Notice in the from member, (msg.from) I can define an email, but how can I define the sender description using componentpro mail API? Tks Daniel

To add a full name to the sender or recipient, you can use the following format "`First Last`". Please let us know if it's what you are looking for.

Not sure if I missed this but I don´t think that´s clear in the documentation of the 'From' member... Thanks for the solution!
