Examples
This console sample connects to the SMTP server asynchronously and handles Connected event. No callback function is used.
using System;
using MailBee;
using MailBee.SmtpMail;

class Sample
{
    // "Connected" event handler.
    private static void OnConnected(object sender, ConnectedEventArgs e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Successfully connected to the server.");
    }

    // The actual code.
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        Smtp mailer = new Smtp();

        mailer.SmtpServers.Add("smtp.somehost.com");

        // Subscribe to the Connected event.
        mailer.Connected += new ConnectedEventHandler(OnConnected);

        // Initiate an asynchronous connection.
        mailer.BeginConnect(null, null);

        // Simulate some lengthy work here. At the same time, 
        // the connection with the server is established on another thread.
        System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(3000);

        // End the connection request.
        mailer.EndConnect();

        mailer.Disconnect();
    }
