Remarks

In the most cases, the developer does not need to directly create an EmailAddress object to specify e-mail addresses because the most methods and properties which deal with e-mail addresses also accept string inputs as e-mail address values.

EmailAddress class offers AsString property for this. For instance, to specify MailMessage.From as a string, set msg.From.AsString value (assuming msg is MailMessage instance).

Multiple e-mail addresses (such as the list of To, CC or BCC recipients) can be stored in EmailAddressCollection of EmailAddress objects.

If you need to deal with international e-mail addresses (IDN domains), use FromIdnAddress and ToIdnAddress methods to convert e-mail addresses between human-readable and SMTP-safe formats.

Examples
This sample loads a message from .EML file and displays e-mail address details for each recipient.
// To use the code below, import MailBee namespaces at the top of your code.
using MailBee;
using MailBee.Mime;

// The actual code (put it into a method of your class)

// Load the message from file.
MailMessage msg = new MailMessage();
msg.LoadMessage(@"C:\Docs\TestMail.eml");

// For every recipient...
foreach (EmailAddress adr in msg.To)
{
    // Show full information about the recipient's e-mail address.
    Console.WriteLine("Recipient name: " + adr.DisplayName);
    Console.WriteLine("Recipient address: " + adr.Email);
    Console.WriteLine("Recipient info: " + adr.Remarks);
    Console.WriteLine("Account name: " + adr.GetAccountName());
    Console.WriteLine("Domain name: " + adr.GetDomain());
}
