Known Issues with Send Mail via SMTP


I'm using Filemaker Pro Advanced and sending email to a group of people from a data table.   The various email addresses are just fields from the table.   I check the LastError after the Send Mail statement and am finding an error on about 75% of attempts.   The send mail statement is in a loop so that if an error occurs it retries 5 times before moving on the the next person.  Nevertheless there are still more than 50% failures.   If I change the Send Mail statement to use my email client it works perfectly, every time without fail.    The SMTP setup details are correct, and it does work sometimes.   Any ideas or known issues would be appreciated.
