You will need to subclass it in order to have access to the protected event procedures
It should look something like this:
unit Unit1;
 
interface
 
uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, IdBaseComponent, IdComponent, IdTCPConnection, IdTCPClient,
  IdExplicitTLSClientServerBase, IdMessageClient, IdSMTPBase, IdSMTP;
 
type TMySmtp = class(TIdSMTP);
 
type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
     MySMTP : TMySmtp;
    procedure MySMTPStatus(ASender: TObject; const AStatus: TIdStatus; const AStatusText: string);
    { Private declarations }
  public
 
    { Public declarations }
  end;
 
var
  Form1: TForm1;
 
implementation
 
{$R *.dfm}
 
procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
     MySMTP := TMySmtp.Create(Self);
     MySMTP.OnStatus := MySMTPStatus;
end;
 
procedure TForm1.MySMTPStatus(ASender: TObject; const AStatus: TIdStatus;  const AStatusText: string);
begin
     // do Status stuff
end;
 
end.
