    Just trace it with ethereal using your regular client.
    Then make your program do the same things.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Never mind.

    I got some errors when starting the trace or sometimes when stoping it. Windows XP Professional SP2

    Got it. According to RFC 2821 the end of the email should be specified by "\r\n.\r\n"
