Hi Bob,

Use the statusProc parameter to record a trace, and look at the differences where you succeed vs where you fail.

  SMTPStatus method (in a code class)
     If #L1.$cols.$count<>1
       Do #L1.$define(#S1)
     End if
     Do #L1.$add(#S1)

or more simply just
   Calculate #S2 as con(#S2,chr(13),#S1)

and you'll see the negotiations in #L1 or #S2 after SMTPSend completes.  That could help you identify why the server is unhappy.
