SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. In a Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 based application, you try to send e-mail by using the System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient class. You use the DeliveryMethod.Network method from the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. In this scenario, you may receive the following System.Net.Mail.SmtpException error message:
Command not implemented. The server response was: Command not Supported.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the remote SMTP server does not support the SMTP extended Hello (EHLO) command. The exception occurs when the remote SMTP server returns the 502 reply code and the System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient class expects the 500 reply code.
