Hello,

we are using limilabs mail components and now we recognized one problem.

If we send an mail to several adresses (to, cc, or bcc) and one of the adresses is a not existing mail adress, all mails will not be delivered.

E.x.:

We sent to an existing adress existingmail@ourdomain.de and as 2nd adress notexistingmail@ourdomain.de . The Email will be sent, but the mail will not be received by the mailaccount existingmail@ourdomain.de.

How can this problem be solved?

Thanks for an answer!

Regards

TK

First be sure to check the return value of the Smtp.SemdMessage method:

ISendMessageResult result = smtp.SendMessage(mail);
switch (result.Status)
{
    case SendMessageStatus.Success:
        break;
    case SendMessageStatus.PartialSucess:
        break;
    case SendMessageStatus.Failure:
        break;
}

By default, sending message fails if any of the recipient is rejected by the SMTP server, so only 2 statuses may be returned: SendMessageStatus.Success and SendMessageStatus.Failure.

You can set Smtp.Configuration.AllowPartialSending property to modify this behavior, messages will be sent even if the SMTP server rejects some recipients:

IMail mail = Fluent.Mail.Text("Sample email")
    .Subject("subject goes here")
    .From("user@example.com")
    .To("invalid@example.com")
    .To("valid@example.com")
    .Create();

using (Smtp smtp = new Smtp())
{
    smtp.Configuration.AllowPartialSending = true; // <-- ignore rejected recipients

    smtp.Connect("smtp.example.com"); // or ConnectSSL for SSL
    smtp.UseBestLogin("user@example.com", "password");

    ISendMessageResult result = smtp.SendMessage(mail);

    Assert.AreEqual(SendMessageStatus.PartialSucess, result.Status);

    switch (result.Status)
    {
        case SendMessageStatus.Success:
            break;
        case SendMessageStatus.PartialSucess:
            // error handling code goes here.
            break;
        case SendMessageStatus.Failure:
            // error handling code goes here.
            CollectionAssert.AreEqual(
                new[] { "invalid@example.com" }, 
                result.RejectedRecipients);
            break;
    }

    client.Close();
}
