Sometimes customer's SMTP host has an issue and therefore F1-EmailService causes an error exception.

 The F1-EmailService assumes that smtp sever is always avaialble but sometimes it's not, due to all the connections being used up.

 Clients suggestion was to add the following:
 1. ability to handle retrying itself
 2. ability to resend any failed messages
 3. give an error message if retrying is not possible


 Issue in log file:
  "javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host:, port:<PORT>;" "Caused by: Connection timed out"

 This issue happened occasionally, and if customer send Email manually, it always be succeed.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Sometimes customer's SMTP host has an issue
2. F1-EmailService causes an error exception.
