We have had some problems sending mails with rather large attachments. I don't know the limit but we have tried with both 50 and 100 MB files and had the problem.

We downloaded a trial version of the newest version to see if this had helped because then we would of course just bought that version. Unfortunately this haven't helped.

The scenario is as follows:

We create the mail with attachment and send the mail. After a while we get an error and our log shows the following

Hello,

with the newest version of Rebex SMTP, please try to disable the Chunking and Pipelining extensions before sending the message as in my example below:

Smtp smtp = new Smtp();
smtp.EnabledExtensions &= ~(SmtpExtensions.Pipelining | SmtpExtensions.Chunking);

smtp.Connect("server");
// send mail

If it does not help, send us the new log from the SMTP session.

...
