Is a good description Rob. What is it that you are attempting to
verify ???

        Carrier on the ISP to You Leg of a circuit ?
        Good MX records in a DNS server somewhere ?
        That the Frewall port is open and available ?
        That the network route tables are intact and active ?
        That the iSeries is powered up and operating ?
        That Domino is handling SMTP messages ?
        That the Network support people came to work on New Years Day ??

        The simple answer is maybe a RPG or C program that opens a
connection to your ISPs relay mail handler and verifies that it get's the
proper response.. "220  mail.x.y.net ESMTP ..................."
