Use the OutboundMailServiceInstance property of the SPWebApplication class to return the outbound mail service instance that is used in a Web application.

Use the inherited Instances property of the SPOutboundMailService class to return an SPServiceInstanceDependencyCollection object that represents all instances of the outbound mail service. Use the SPOutboundMailServiceInstanceCollection constructor to return the collection of outbound mail service instances that are running on a specific server.

Use an indexer to return a single outbound mail service instance from the collection. For example, if the collection is assigned to a variable named myOutboundMailServiceInstances, use myOutboundMailServiceInstances[index] in C#, or myOutboundMailServiceInstances(index) in Visual Basic, where index is either the name or the GUID that identifies the service instance in the collection.
