bpc = new BindingParameterCollection();

factory = binding.BuildChannelFactory<IOutputChannel>(bpc);
listener = binding.BuildChannelListener<IInputChannel>(MailUriHelper.CreateUri(ChannelName, ""), bpc);

output = factory.CreateChannel(new EndpointAddress(MailUriHelper.Create(ChannelName, DestinationEmailAddress)));
