    Quick example using System.Net.Mail.MailMessage :-
    Using mm As New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage
                mm.Priority = MailPriority.High
                mm.To.Add(New MailAddress("destination@domain"))
                mm.From = New MailAddress("noreply@senderdomain")
                mm.Subject = "This is an example email subject"
                mm.Body = "This is an example email body"
                mm.IsBodyHtml = False
                Dim oSmtp As New SmtpClient
                oSmtp.Credentials = New Net.NetworkCredential("username", "password")
            End Using

    Also the following in your config file :-

    1    <system.net>
    2    		<mailSettings>
    3    			<smtp>
    4    				<network host="" port="25"/>
    5    			</smtp>
    6    		</mailSettings>
    7    	</system.net>
     Where network host represents the smtp server you want to use. This can also be set through code.
    I think if you leave this out it will try and send via the local smtp service on the box your code is running on.

    Your question doesn't make very much sense. Emails are sent from a mail server to an email address. Does this local folder on your machine have an email address? Why not just send the email to yourself (your own email address)?

    I want to test sending email in my application so, instead of sending the email to my own email address I want the email to be sent to a folder in my machine. I want the emails to be saved in this folder.

    Is there a way to do this?

    After you have composed your message, before you send it, change the smtp setting as follows: 

    smtpClient.PickupDirectoryLocation = "C:\\temp\\";
    smtpClient.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.SpecifiedPickupDirectory;
