Happened to me today:

My mailserver connects to a SMTP server on port 25.
The server accepts the connection, but stays mute.
tidsmtp.Send()  hangs, infinitely, and I have to kill the task.

(In order to reply per e-mail, please just remove the ".net"
  from my e-mail address. Leave the rest of the address intact
  including the "antispam" part. I had to take this measure to
  counteract unsollicited mail.)
