Don’t start banging me for this, but I had to test something on Windows and thus found out this. I f you need to debug or test something on IE8 on Windows, then you can simply press “F12” and this will bring up the developer tools… could be useful to you, sometime if you are stuck with testing something on IE on windows 🙂
If you are having issues with the SMTP Server, then sometimes you just wish you had a swiss army knife to test the same and then you would not have to spend your precious time on some silly mistake that you may have made. Your wish is now fulfilled.
To begin with, if you want to test the localhost then simply enter swaks, you will be asked for \”to\” address. And then there will be a attempt to send the mail. And you can see the messages on the console. Here\’s an example:
=== Trying localhost:25…
=== Connected to ===============.
<- 220 amit.themafia.info ESMTPExim 4.69 Sun, 07 Mar 2010 10:24:25 +0530
-> EHLO amit.themafia.info
<- 250-amit.themafia.info Hello ====================== <- 250-SIZE 52428800
<- 250 HELP
-> MAIL FROM:=========================== <- 250 OK
-> RCPT TO:================ <- 250 Accepted
<- 354 Enter message, ending with \”.\” on a line by itself
-> Date: Sun, 07 Mar 2010 10:24:25 +0550
-> From: ===================================
-> Subject: test Sun, 07 Mar 2010 10:24:25 +0550
-> X-Mailer: swaks v20061116.0 jetmore.org/john/code/#swaks
-> This is a test mailing
<- 250 OK id=1No8VV-0003bT-EC
<- 221 amit.themafia.info closing connection
=== Connection closed with remote host.
For my own security, I have removed my email address and other things. Now, coming to other things.
Here are few of the options that you may find useful
