Examples

The following code example resends an email message that was not delivered because a mailbox was busy or unavailable.

static void RetryIfBusy( String^ server )
{
   MailAddress^ from = gcnew MailAddress( L"ben@contoso.com" );
   MailAddress^ to = gcnew MailAddress( L"jane@contoso.com" );
   MailMessage^ message = gcnew MailMessage( from,to );
   
   // message.Subject = "Using the SmtpClient class.";
   message->Subject = L"Using the SmtpClient class.";
   message->Body = L"Using this feature, you can send an email message from an application very easily.";
   
   // Add a carbon copy recipient.
   MailAddress^ copy = gcnew MailAddress( L"Notifications@contoso.com" );
   message->CC->Add( copy );
   SmtpClient^ client = gcnew SmtpClient( server );
   
   // Include credentials if the server requires them.
   client->Credentials = dynamic_cast<ICredentialsByHost^>(CredentialCache::DefaultNetworkCredentials);
   Console::WriteLine( L"Sending an email message to {0} using the SMTP host {1}.", to->Address, client->Host );
   try
   {
      client->Send( message );
   }
   catch ( SmtpFailedRecipientsException^ ex ) 
   {
      for ( int i = 0; i < ex->InnerExceptions->Length; i++ )
      {
         SmtpStatusCode status = ex->InnerExceptions[ i ]->StatusCode;
         if ( status == SmtpStatusCode::MailboxBusy || status == SmtpStatusCode::MailboxUnavailable )
         {
            Console::WriteLine( L"Delivery failed - retrying in 5 seconds." );
            System::Threading::Thread::Sleep( 5000 );
