Hi Ashley,

Indeed, the purpose for having the IModel hanging off the IConnection is to
allow a single connection to be shared. Sharing the connection reduces the
number of active connections to your server. It also eliminates a potential
cause of problems when connections are created and torn down in rapid

If you consider the amount of time taken to establish a connection, then
sharing the connection will certainly help increase your message sending
