It's been a while since last update of MailBee.NET Objects but it was worth waiting for. This release adds a ton of improvements including a new component for bulk e-mail validation, better support of the latest Windows versions like 8.1, 64-bit systems, and .NET 4.0/4.5/4.5.1 Framework, OAuth 2.0, Visual Studio 2013 compatibility, and much more.
First of all, meet MailBee.NET Address Validator
, a high-performance, massively multi-threaded, database-aware .NET component which can enable your applications to verify e-mail addresses for valid syntax, for domain name existence, DNS MX accuracy, and SMTP availibility. It can be purchased separately or as part of the full MailBee.NET Objects bundle.
A big brother of Address Validator, SMTP component, can now run mail merge over SQL Server database
enabling efficient and memory-conservative processing of very big datasets.
With IMAP component, you can now explicitly tell the server not to set IMAP Seen flag
when downloading full messages.
A number of other enhancements have been applied to the particular components (especially Outlook .PST reader and .MSG converter), but the most important updates cover the entire library. Just to name a few:
- This release introduces support of SASL XOAUTH2 authentication for all e-mail protocols. You can now check or send e-mail at Gmail and other OAuth 2.0 enabled services without ever knowing the user's password.
- Registry licensing no longer causes issues when MailBee is being used within 32-bit process on 64-bit Windows. Generally, the licensing mechanism now requires much less attention and just lets you focus on the task you're doing.
- Countless improvements to the MIME parser and builder, especially related to S/MIME, international e-mails, and special characters processing (like quoted strings in e-mail headers).
- Network related changes, including better IPv6 support, ability to set .Connect timeout, more accurate validation of certificates during SSL connections.
In addition to the codebase changes, this release delivers new samples, better installer which supports Windows 8.1 (and any other systems without .NET 2.0/3.5), revised documentation. Visual Studio Integrated Documentation is now offered for 2010 and 2012 versions.
A companion of SMTP component, MailBee.NET Queue
bulk mail delivery agent has been updated as well and now supports Windows 8.1, Visual Studio 2013, .NET 4.0/4.5/4.5.1, UAC, and 64-bit systems.
And there is better logging, exception handling, bounce e-mail processing, and so on. To read more on the new features and improvements of this release, you can check Version History
