Release Notes

  • The SmtpProxy Windows service was crashing after a variable amount of time. We have isolated the section of code that was causing the problem and refactored it so that there is only one thread instead of two. Previously, thread 1 monitored traffic from the client and thread 2 monitored traffic from the SMTP server. By combining this functionality into a single thread, we have eliminated the random crashes that were occurring on some production servers.
  • The log file would quickly get filled with a number of SocketExceptions because we were not very graceful about ending the threads that processed the work. This has been completely refactored, so that the only time an exception should appear in the logs is during an unexpected crash.

Fixed in next release
  • When the installer runs, it automatically uninstalls the previous version, including the "SmtpProxy.exe.config" file. We changed the installer in this release so that it writes a "Sample SmtpProxy.exe.config" file rather than a "SmtpProxy.exe.config" file. Unfortunately, we can't change the v1.1 installer that will be called, so when installing v1.2, you will want to make a copy of your config file before installing v1.2.

Reviews for this release

Works great and solved a problem with some legacy software we weren't able to use with modern email hosts. Thanks for putting it together and making it available!

Easy to setup and works exactly like advertised. A little life-saver :-)

Nice Service. It helped me to get our old Kyocera Printer send Emails again.

This is a great little utility! Very simple and easy to configure. As we move clients to hosted exchange we can set this up to handle all the older software/devices which do not support SSL/TLS. Before finding this utility we were going to try using hmail server to handle smtp and could not get to do what we wanted; plus it was much more than we needed which made it more complicated.
