If SimpleMail returns an error, some checks can be done. Often it is not a SimpleMail issue rather an issue of the mail server.
First of all, please use LastStatus and LastStatusMessage properties in order to get the error code and message. This message is often really helpful for troubleshooting.
Further, please check the following:
Please check the following:
- If you have entered the right ip/name of the mail server?
- Does the mail server reply of a ping request (on command line "ping mailserverip")?
- Does the mail server accept smtp requests?
Please type in the following on command line:
"telnet mailserverip 25"
in order to contact the mail server on port 25. Does the connection work? Maybe your mail server uses another port instead of port 25 for mail.
- Make sure that no firewall (like Windows XP Firewall) is blocking SimpleMail.
