SmtpLowLevelDataReceived Event
Occurs when data is received from the connected socket.

Namespace: MailBee.SmtpMail
Assembly: MailBee.NET (in MailBee.NET.dll) Version: 12.4 build 677 for .NET 4.5
public event DataTransferEventHandler LowLevelDataReceived


Type: MailBeeDataTransferEventHandler

If the transmission channel is encrypted, this event will be raised when any encrypted chunk of data is received. Thus, this event can be used to record the data which is actually received from the network.

The typical use of this property is to calculate the network traffic produced during the SMTP session (including POP3/DNS data if any). SSL encryption increases the length of the transmitted data blocks, thus it's more accurate to calculate traffic by counting the length of data actually transmitted over the network.

If the transmission channel is not encrypted or otherwise scrambled, this property is equivalent to DataReceived.

This sample calculates all incoming traffic from the network during sending the message in direct send mode. DNS MX lookup traffic and SMTP traffic are calculated separately, and the results are printed into console.

            _totalBytesSmtp += e.Data.Length;
        else if (e.Protocol == TopLevelProtocolType.Dns)
            // Increment DNS traffic counter.
            _totalBytesDns += e.Data.Length;

        // Get DNS servers from config file/OS settings.

        // Subscribe to the LowLevelDataReceived event.
        mailer.LowLevelDataReceived += new DataTransferEventHandler(OnLowLevelDataReceived);

        // Produce some DNS and SMTP traffic by performing direct send of empty message.
        mailer.Send("", ",");

        // Print the total number of bytes received from the network.
        Console.WriteLine(_totalBytesSmtp + " bytes received in all SMTP sessions");
        Console.WriteLine(_totalBytesDns + " bytes received in all DNS responses");
