Manual page for MCONNECT(8)

mconnect - connect to SMTP mail server socket


/usr/etc/mconnect [ -p port ] [ -r ] [ hostname ]


mconnect opens a connection to the mail server on a given host, so that it can be tested independently of all other mail software. If no host is given, the connection is made to the local host. Servers expect to speak the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) on this connection. Exit by typing the quit command. Typing EOF will send an end of file to the server. An interrupt closes the connection immediately and exits.


-p port
Specify the port number instead of the default SMTP port (number 25) as the next argument.
``Raw'' mode: disable the default line buffering and input handling. This gives you a similar effect as telnet to port number 25, not very useful.
