Is use .net winform application to send an e-mail via thie code :  
            SmtpClient smtpCli = new SmtpClient();
            smtpCli.Host = SynEmailing.Properties.Settings.Default.SMTP_Host;
            smtpCli.Port = Convert.ToInt32(SynEmailing.Properties.Settings.Default.SMTP_Port);
            smtpCli.Send(htmldoc);

the mail is sent when I close the application  or when i wait for a long time.

how can I do to be sure that the mail is sent when the line smtpcli.send(...) is executed ?

Thanks

by using try catch block only you can do this. I mean put exception handling. Example given below.
  try
  {
            SmtpClient smtpCli = new SmtpClient();
            smtpCli.Host = SynEmailing.Properties.Settings.Default.SMTP_Host;
            smtpCli.Port = Convert.ToInt32(SynEmailing.Properties.Settings.Default.SMTP_Port);
            smtpCli.Send(htmldoc);
  }
  catch (Exception ex)
  {
    MessageBox.Show(ex.Message, "EMail", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation);
  }

Send is synchronous method. It means that the method blocks execution until the message is sent (or send failed). If you want to send the message asynchronously, call SendAsync.

check your AntiVirus solution. Try to close/stop it the time you make a test.
