Hi.

My company is using Mailbee SMTP component for sending emails.
They asked me to investigate how to know when the email has gone out from SMTP's server queue.

As i know, regular smtp process is following:

-Mailbee connects with SMTP server
-Mailbee sends to the SMTP the recipient and body of email
-The SMTP server puts the email to the sending queue
-When its time to send the email, the SMTP server takes it from the queue and connects with target SMTP server
-The SMTP server sends the email to the target smtp
-the SMTP server removes the email from the sending queue.

I want to know the moment when the email has gone from the sending queue.
I need it to set a flag in my internal database. The flag means that the message has gone from my SMTP server.

What's the best way how to check it ?

Once mail message is accepted by SMTP server for delivery, this is where MailBee's responsibility area ends, it cannot detect or affect message delivery status - unless of course we're speaking of handling further bounce messages.

The only reliable way to check if mail has left the queue is to use queue monitoring software for your particular mail server. Numerous apps are available for that purpose, e.g. this one for XMail.

I believe this can be done with Exchange System Manager, see this page for details.
