I want to check for SMTP connectivity. How can I check it without sending any mail?

You can connect to SMTP server and disconnect from it without sending data as follows:

Code:
Dim Mailer
Set Mailer = CreateObject("MailBee.SMTP")
Mailer.LicenseKey = "put your license key here"
Mailer.ServerName = "mail.server.com"
Mailer.UserName = "MyName"
Mailer.Password = "MyPassword"
Mailer.AuthMethod = 1 ' PLAIN ESMTP authentication
If Mailer.Connect Then
  MsgBox "Connected successfully"
  Mailer.Disconnect
Else
  ' Server not available, PLAIN is not supported or username/password is incorrect
  MsgBox Mailer.ErrDesc
End If


Regards,
Igor

Thanks a lot. It worked fine. I am not using PLAIN. After commenting Mailer.AuthMethod = 1 line. I am getting "Connected successfully" in spite of providing wrong user name and password.

I got it. If we need to test username and password also. we should use Mailer.AuthMethod = 2
