SendMail component.  

property WaitTimeout: Integer;  

The WaitTimeout property specifies the time interval (limit), in milliseconds unit, which application able to wait while the mail will be sent.  
For example, if the maximum time which you can allow to send an email is 5 seconds, set this value to 5000 (milliseconds). If application can wait infinitely, set WaitTimeout to 0.  
iiinfo When the timeout is expired, the component automatically terminates the process of sending an email. To be notified when the WaitTimeout is expired — write OnWaitTimeoutExpired event handler.  

The WaitTimeout only works together with WaitThread property, only when it set to True.
