Hi Clément,

if you experience a Gmail specific problem with the SMTP server
prematurely closing the connection after finishing the data
transmission my findings published in

about a year ago may apply.

Back then some Google Mail servers disconnected directly after
receiving the 'QUIT' command without sending a reply, which
undoubtedly is in violation of RFC 2821 and makes Indy regard the
transmission as being aborted. But I've no idea whether that unusual
behaviour continues.

Kind regards
