Rob, How about using one of the anonymous email services out there? Any email sent to the "fake" email address would be routed back to your real email address (in Notes). I haven't used any anonymizers (is that a word!) so I don't know how quickly they pass the mail along. FYI - sneakemail.com is one example. Another option might be to write a program than opens a TCP/IP socket on port 25 to some SMTP server "out there" and see if you get the appropriate response. You could even send an email to yourself that way. Hope this helps!

Duh, we can now, of course. The problem is that they want some sort of program that every x minutes verifies that we still can, and if not, perform appropriate actions.
