Hello all,

First off, if there is a better place to post for an answer to this
question, please feel free to point me there.

I have some very strange behavior happening with my System.web.mail objects.

I was able to run my application fine for roughly 1500 email messages. The
next time I tried sending mail, it stopped working with the message:
"

was 0x80040217. The server response was not available

My question is this: What would cause this behaviour? I have since changed
several lines of code to try to fix the problem, but have not had any
success. This has happened to me in the past and it seemed like rebooting
the server may have fixed it, not this time however.

Here's my code snippit:

public void sendMailNow(string listID)

{

MailMessage myMail = new MailMessage(); myMail.To = ToMail;

if(mBCC != "")

myMail.Bcc = mBCC;

myMail.From = FromMail;

myMail.Subject = mSubject;

myMail.BodyFormat = mFormat;

myMail.Body = mBody;

myMail.Fields["http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthentica
te"] = 1;

myMail.Fields["http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername"]
= mUserName;

myMail.Fields["http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword"]
= mPassword;

SmtpMail.SmtpServer = mSMTPServer;

SmtpMail.Send(myMail);

logMailnow(ToMail,listID);

}

Sorry, I hit send prior to finishiing up the message:

All variables listed in my code at the bottom are set through properties...

It just seems strange to me that it works then stops. I'm using this for
emails to people who have signed up for newsletters (and there's only a
handful). Basically, I'm trying to let the other folks in my office manage
their own communciations with our clients through a web interface.

Thanks in advance for your help.

replies probably a bit late :-) - but for those other visitors to th
site with this error:

It's caused by a wrong username or password for the SMTP server an
usually means that the server has disabled your account for spamming i
you've sent 1500 mails
