The following code example demonstrates accessing the ServicePoint property.

static void CreateTestMessage1( String^ server, int port )
   String^ to = L"";
   String^ from = L"";
   String^ subject = L"Using the new SMTP client.";
   String^ body = L"Using this new feature, you can send an e-mail message from an application very easily.";
   MailMessage^ message = gcnew MailMessage( from,to,subject,body );
   SmtpClient^ client = gcnew SmtpClient( server,port );

   // Credentials are necessary if the server requires the client 
   // to authenticate before it will send e-mail on the client's behalf.
   client->Credentials = CredentialCache::DefaultNetworkCredentials;

   //Display the properties on the service point.
   ServicePoint^ p = client->ServicePoint;
   Console::WriteLine( L"Connection lease timeout: {0}", p->ConnectionLeaseTimeout );
   client->Send( message );
