SendEmail succeeds, but email never goes out?

Oct 22 '12 at 19:33

We use your Chilkat Mailman2 and Email2 Activex to send out emails from our application. One of our user gets the status " Email sent successfully" But it never go out. Please advise...


The SendEmail method returned true after the email was successfully handed over to the SMTP server. When the SMTP server decides to actually forward the email onward to its destination is another matter. Some SMTP servers wait until the SMTP client’s connection is terminated. Calling mailman.CloseSmtpConnection will do it.
