How can I send emails without going through my personal SMTP server?

It is impossible to send email without some SMTP server - but you can bypass your own SMTP server and send the mail directly to the best SMTP server for the recipient of the message. In order to do this you will need to use the MX control. Simply supply the MX control with the recipients email address and it will return the best SMTP server to use when sending to that recipient. For example:

MX1.Resolve "tom@nsoftware.com"

The MX Resolved event will fire with the results, containing the IP address of the mail servers that specifically service the email address.
