Remarks

By default, DNS MX caching is enabled which may greatly increase performance of "direct send" operations which involve sending large amounts of e-mails directly to end recipients mail servers (without using SMTP relay server).

MailBee also maintains TXT and PTR records cache. TXT records are used for DomainKeys sender verification (a sort of antispam technology). Checking PTR records (reverse DNS) of the IP address from which the e-mail came (extracted from MailMessage.TimeStamps[0].From) is another method of sender verification.

Note Note
DNS cache maintained by DnsCache class is shared by all instances of Smtp objects within the application domain.
