(C++) SMTP SSH Tunneling (Port Forwarding)

Demonstrates how to setup an SSH tunnel for SMTP. This example connects to an SMTP sever via an SSH tunnel and sends an email.

    {
    //  The mailman object is used for sending (SMTP) and receiving (POP3) email.
    CkMailMan mailman;

    //  Any string argument automatically begins the 30-day trial.
    bool success = mailman.UnlockComponent("30-day trial.");
    if (success != true) {
        std::cout << mailman.lastErrorText() << "\r\n";
        return;
    }

    //  Connect to an SSH server and establish the SSH tunnel:

    //  The SSH hostname may be a hostname or an
    //  IP address, such as "192.168.1.108".
    //  The port is typically 22 (the standard port for SSH).

        return;
    }

    //  Authenticate with the SSH server via a login/password
    //  or with a public key.
    //  This example demonstrates SSH password authentication.
    //  Note: This is not authenticating with the SMTP server, it is
    //  for authenticating with the SSH server, which is separate.
    success = mailman.SshAuthenticatePw("sshLogin","sshPassword");
    if (success != true) {
        std::cout << mailman.lastErrorText() << "\r\n";
        return;
    }

    //  OK, the SSH tunnel is setup.  The mailman may
    //  be used exactly the same as usual, except all communications
    //  are now sent through the SSH tunnel.

    //  Set the SMTP server.
    mailman.put_SmtpHost("smtp.my-smtp-server.com");

    //  Set the SMTP login/password (if required)
    mailman.put_SmtpUsername("smtpLogin");
    mailman.put_SmtpPassword("smtpPassword");

    //  Create a new email object
    CkEmail email;

    email.put_Subject("This is a test");
    email.put_Body("This is a test");
    email.put_From("Chilkat Support <support@chilkatsoft.com>");
    success = email.AddTo("Chilkat Admin","admin@chilkatsoft.com");

    //  The call to SendEmail automatically connects to the SMTP
    //  server via the SSH tunnel (if not already connected).
    //  Because the SSH tunnel has been previously setup,
    //  this does not establish a direct connection with the SMTP
    //  server.  It directs the SSH server to establish the connection.

    //  After SendEmail completes, the connection (i.e. session) remains
    //  open so that subsequent SendEmail calls may use the
    //  same SSH tunnel.
    success = mailman.SendEmail(email);
    if (success != true) {
        std::cout << mailman.lastErrorText() << "\r\n";
        return;
    }

    //  If you're curious, have a look at LastErrorText after
    //  a successful send.  You'll see detailed information that
    //  confirms the SSH tunneling.
    std::cout << mailman.lastErrorText() << "\r\n";

    //  Note: Some SMTP servers do not actually send the email until
    //  the connection is closed.  In these cases, it is necessary to
    //  call CloseSmtpConnection for the mail to be  sent.
    //  Most SMTP servers send the email immediately, and it is
    //  not required to close the connection.

    std::cout << "Mail Sent!" << "\r\n";
