hum ... never had this problem
how do you send themessage ?
this is a part from one of my dlls :

function SendEmail(const Server: PChar; const Port: Integer = 25): Integer; stdcall;
var idSMTP: TidSMTP;
begin
     Result:=-1;
     if not Loaded then exit;
     try
        idSMTP:=TidSMTP.Create(nil);
        try
           idSMTP.Host:=string(Server);
           idSMTP.Port:=Port;
           idSMTP.Connect();
           if not idSMTP.Connected then exit;
           idSMTP.Send(idMSG); // idMSG is a global TidMessage
           Result:=1;
        finally
           if idSMTP.Connected then
              idSMTP.Disconnect;
           FreeAndNil(idSMTP);
        end;
     except
        Result:=-2;
     end;
end;

The host where you are trying to send the message to has not received, recognized, or accepted the RECV command which must be issued prior to sending data. The cause for this can be no recipient address, a bad recipient address, or no right to relay on that server.
