Hi all,

i got the below issue while sending mail from my VB 6.0 application.

The message could not be sent to the SMTP server. The transport error code was 0x80040217. The server response was available

I have tried to replicate but no luck.

can anybody tell me is this problem is from SMTP/exchange server side or code side?

Hello KK,

This could be due to Invalid SMTP credentials. Try using this program to see if you are able to communicate and send an email with your SMTP server.
