Hey Indy team,

I have just been looking through the code for the TIdSMTP.Connect function
and I seem to be a little bit confused. There is an ATimeout parameter that
you can pass into this function, but after reading the code for this
function and the functions that are called, I can't seem to see where this
value is actually being used.

My questions are below:

Does the IdSMTP connect function actually use the ATimeout parameter that is
passed in?

If it doesn't use the parameter, then is there anyway to set the timeout
value for the IdSMTP connection?

Thanks in advance.
