Security and Reliability

The Ultimate SMTP component provides industry standard security using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols. Our components support strong, commercial grade encryption, and we do not rely on any third-party toolkits which have licensing restrictions or are encumbered by patents. By setting a single property or option, the component automatically handles all of the complex certificate management, protocol negotiation and encryption for you. Even advanced options, such as using client certificates, are handled easily with just a few lines of code.

Support for IPv6, the next generation Internet protocol

IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6), the next-generation protocol designed by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force), will gradually replace the current version of the Internet Protocol, IPv4.

With Ultimate SMTP Component, users have an integrated service assurance solution that will provide them with SMTP, and Proxy capabilities in mixed IPv4 and IPv6 environments. This helps organizations with the adoption of and the transition to IPv6 by making the management of such networks seamless.

Supports event-driven (Asynchronous) and blocking (Synchronous) Design

Most applications written with the SMTP component will be synchronous. Synchronous method gives you the ease-of-use, but it can only returns the control back to the caller after it has finished, meaning that it blocks the execution of the caller for a period of time. Using synchronous method is recommended when you only need to execute one SMTP operation at a time.

You might decide that your design requires an asynchronous sending when it is needed to send email messages simultaneously. Asynchronous methods provide a great deal of power. Asynchronous method is executed on a thread separate from the calling thread. Such operation is useful when an SMTP operation is time consuming and other codes need to execute without waiting for the initial operation to complete. In addition, the user interface will be most responsive when asynchronous methods are used.

Flexibility

The SMTP component has been designed with a great degree of flexibility and can be used with a wide variety of programming languages and different types of development environments. Available as a managed .NET class, it is fully supported by languages such as Visual Basic, Visual C#, J#, Managed C++, Borland C# Builder, and Delphi.

Fully Documented

As important as functionality, features and stability are, comprehensive documentation is equally as important to the application developer. This is why the ComponentPro SMTP for .NET product includes a Developer's Guide and a complete Technical Reference which documents every property, method and event supported by the component. A printable version of the documentation is included with the product, as well as context-sensitive online help which can be accessed directly from within the development environment.

Lots of complete SMTP client sample in C#, VB.NET, and ASP.NET

In addition to the fully documented Developer's Guide and a complete Technical Reference, Ultimate SMTP component also includes a number of samples with full source code which help you become familiar with the features of the component and provide code which you can re-use in your own applications. The setup package contains three complete SMTP client applications: SMTP Console Client, SMTP WinForms Client, and SMTP WebForms Client.

Royalty-free

ComponentPro understands today's software development requirements which often require support for multiple operating systems and different programming languages. As with all ComponentPro components, the product is licensed to a single developer, and applications built using the SMTP component can be redistributed to as many end-users as needed without additional royalties or runtime licensing fees. Developers are also permitted to install the product on different development systems as long as they are the only one using it and there is no chance that it can be used by more than one developer at the same time.
