Guide Review - SMTP Diagnostics 1.5 - Email Delivery Troubleshooting Tool
SMTP Diagnostics does everything your email program does when it sends an email, but it records every move and prints out what is done behind the scenes in an easy to follow format. You can even print the complete suada for diagnostic purposes.
Yet, while SMTP Diagnostics does indeed make looking at the SMTP messages, codes and errors a snap, it does offer much help with interpretation and troubleshooting. You could, for the most part, use telnet and enter the details manually just as well. Testing large messages with attachments is cumbersome that way, however, and SMTP Diagnostics does it flawlessly (as it does SMTP authentication).
