SMTP Servcice pub.client:smtp issue

Hi Experts,

I haven’t used the pub.client:smtp service till date.
While I was trying to send an email to an invalid email address I am seeing the response from this built in service as
staus - “Mail was sent successfully”.
Could anyone please let me know if this is a limitation from SMTP or our webMethods suite tself.
Do we have any custom services that is used to deliver email with the real status.

Thanks in Advance!!

That response is from your SMTP server, seems it doesn’t check the email address format at all.
When it try to deliver it, it will fail and return an error message back to the From mail address.
So, you’d better do basic check of the email address before sending to the SMTP server.
