Description

Setups existing CURL session for an email transfer.
You can set your own settings like proxy after this function call.
If you like you can reuse the email and curl objects after you sent an email, change values and send another email.

Once you passed email content to CURL, you can configure more CURL options, e.g. use CURL.SetOptionPort. When you call CURL.Perform and you get back an "OK", the email was sent to the mail server. You may see in the CURL log a message like "250 2.0.0 Ok: queued" to tell you that the email was received and stored. The email server will later decide whether your email is spam and then discarded or valid and delivered.
