I'm performing a Mailman.VerifySMTPConnection call, using Visual Basic 6 and the ChilKat ActiveX control for Visual Basic 6.0. The call fails but in the Mailmain last error string I can see failReason2: 7.
Can anybody tell me what this means and also where a generic list of error codes can be found for the Visual Basic 6.0 Active X component?
Here's the code snippet that fails. I've obviously removed my password.
Dim email As ChilkatEmail ' New email Dim mailman As New ChilkatMailMan ' Mail service Dim f As frmEmailErrorDetails ' For display of error logs Dim success As Long ' Return code
Here's the debug log illustrating the error:

The failReason = 7 indicates that the connection was rejected by the server for some reason known only to the server. One example might be if the server does not like the origin of the client connecting.
