SmtpServer.TimeoutConnect Property

Specifies the Connection timeout in milliseconds.

[Visual Basic]
Public Property TimeoutConnect As Integer
[C#]
public int TimeoutConnect {get; set;}

Property Value

An integer value between 1 and 999999 that represents the number of milliseconds that connection to the mail server should pass before timing out.

Remarks

The default value is 5000 (5 seconds). This timeout is used to set the amount of time before an operation times out when connecting to the mail server and passing commands to that server such as message addressing. It is not the timeout for sending the actual message data including attachments which require more time before timing out.

Example

[C#]
            public void Send()
            {
                 SmtpServer oSmtpDotNet = new SmtpServer();
             
                 // Set the remote server name.  If left blank, "localhost" is used.
                 oSmtpDotNet.ServerAddress = "mail.domain.com";
                  
                 // Set the connection timeout to 1 second (1000ms).
                 oSmtpDotNet.TimeoutConnect = 1000;
             
                 // Message Addressing
                 oSmtpDotNet.ToAddress = "to@domain.com";
                 oSmtpDotNet.FromAddress = "from@domain.com";
             
                 // Set the message subject and body
                 oSmtpDotNet.Body = "This is the message";
                 oSmtpDotNet.Subject = "Routine email";
                  
                 ReturnCodes nRC = oSmtpDotNet.Send();
                 if ( nRC != ReturnCodes.SUCCESS )
                 {
                      Console.WriteLine("Error #"+nRC+" occurred.");
                      Console.WriteLine(oSmtpDotNet.LastError);
                      Console.Write(oSmtpDotNet.LogFileToString(false));
                      return;
                 }
             
                 // Success!
                 Console.WriteLine("Success!");
            }
