SMTP 550 No such user here

This was just discovered with one SMTP server: the error message:


550 <> No such user here

Was caused by forgetting to authenticate with the SMTP server.  The SMTP server requires authentication in order to relay email to another domain (in other words, it’s protected against being an open-relay).  The error message from this particular SMTP server is misleading — it should really indicate that relaying has been denied, but instead it reports “no such user”.  The solution is to authentication by setting the Chilkat MailMan’s SmtpUsername and SmtpPassword properties before sending email.
