I have been successfully using MailBee.NET.dll version 6.6.2.245, placed in the Bin folder of my web site. When I use the new version 6.7.2.268, several of my Visual Basic web pages that do not reference the MailBee library are no longer working. They return this error: [variable] is not accessible in this context because it is 'Friend'.

This happens where our code is not explicitly declaring a variable before using it. Without the existence of the MailBee DLL, or with the earlier version, these undeclared variables were being implicitly declared. Now, with the newer version of the MailBee DLL in place, the Visual Basic compiler seems to think I am trying to use a variable from a wider scope; if I change the name of the variable, the compiler accepts it as a unique local variable and implicitly declares it.

Granted, our code should be written with explicit declarations and we can fix that. But somehow the existence of the MailBee DLL seems to be changing the compile options for the entire web site. Also granted, this doesn't seem like a MailBee problem; IIS should not allow a DLL to override compile options for the entire web site in which it is placed. I am not particularly expecting a solution from MailBee, but I am wondering whether you or anyone else has any insight into what is going on here.

Looks like there was a problem with signing the DLL, try an updated one
and let us know if this resolves the issue. Thank you!

Works great, thank you. I still think there must be a bug in IIS for this to be allowed to happen, but I guess I don't need to worry about that for now.
