When we write code that creates an instance of the MailService class, we are therefore forced to provide the ISystemSettings interface at the time of construction. This is a compile-time dependency. In other words, changing the instance of ISystemSettings requires changes to the source code, and then recompilation. It would be far better, however, if we set these options at runtime.
