I have a very basic SMTP send procedure that will interemittently throw a
Socket Error #11004.  (Perhaps 1 out of 100-200 times.)  The DNS server is
on a local network, and the hosts (there are only two addresses used at this
point) are valid.  How can the SMTP send procedure be coded to simply retry
the command if this particular error occurs?
