Yes. As you point out, it is an SMTP client component, and as such connects to a specified SMTP server. Performing direct connections to recipients' servers is the job of an SMTP server. > In other words if I want to send mail using MX records I'd have to do a > DNS lookup on the recipients email address then connect to that server > using the SMTP client component, send the email, disconnect and then > repeat for any other TO, CC or BCC addresses ? Yes. But be aware that many ISPs do not allow direct connections from unknown SMTP clients/servers. In particular, you must make sure that your IP address is not dynamic, and that your domain's DNS has a correct PTR record for enabling reverse-DNS lookups, otherwise they will assume you are a spammer and deny connections from you. dZ. -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
