Verify Smtp Functionality

If you're running the SMTP MTA, and you need to know that it's working, write a
simple client-side agent to send an email message every hour or so. The trick

allows you to forward the mail to another address, which obviously is your
Notes address or - preferably - the address of a mail-in database.

SMTP port monitoring is nice, and events that count documents in - a
la Candle's IntelliWatch - help, too, but this is one way to know for SURE that
mail is passing through your SMTP MTA...
