Look at OverbyteIcsMailSnd1.pas, you set the properties UserName, Password and AuthType to smtpAuthAutoSelect, then call the Open method (which calls Connect, Helo/Ehlo then Auth)) and all the authenticiation is handled automatically. You can also look at Magenta Systems Mail Queue Component which simplifies email and does automatic retries against multiple SMTP servers, to ensure email does go. http://www.magsys.co.uk/delphi/magics.asp Angus -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
