that's fine. many of the developers are also not native english
speakers. often we find it's easier to post some code or a diagram
than prose.

(hopefully one of the SMTP experts will jump in sometime soon but i'll
do my best)

a couple of questions

1. what type of connection (eg SMTP, POP3, HTTP) do you want to open?
2. when does this connection need to be opened? (eg during the SMTP
processing transaction, during post-processing of the accepted
message, on a scheduled basis)

a diagram would be great :-)
