Namespace: MailBee.SmtpMail
Assembly: MailBee.NET (in MailBee.NET.dll) Version: 11.2.0 build 590 for .NET 4.5
Syntax
[ObsoleteAttribute("This method is obsolete in .NET 4.5+. Use SendJobsAsync instead.")]
public IAsyncResult BeginSendJobs(
	AsyncCallback callback,
	Object state
)

Parameters

callback
Type: SystemAsyncCallback
The AsyncCallback delegate. You can leave it a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if you do not use callbacks.
state
Type: SystemObject
An object that contains state information for this request. You can leave it a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Return Value

Type: IAsyncResult
An IAsyncResult that references asynchronous sending e-mails accordingly the assigned pending jobs.
Remarks
Examples
This console sample performs mail merge asynchronously. The sample gets notified of mail merge completion by using a callback function.
