How the message is sent depends upon the current configuration. The configuration is defined in the associated Configuration object that is referenced by the Configuration property on this interface. Consult a specific Component Object Model (COM) class implementation for a list of configuration settings used when sending messages.

The message must have at least one recipient, whether in the To, CC, or BCC property, before it can be successfully sent.

The Send method does not invalidate this message after submitting it. If you want to invalidate it and release the memory, you should release all outstanding references to the implementing object in the standard way.
