mconnect


NAME
     mconnect - connect to SMTP mail server socket

SYNOPSIS
     mconnect [-p port] [-r] [hostname]


DESCRIPTION
     The mconnect utility 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 Sim-
     ple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) on this  connection.  Exit
     by  typing the quit command. Typing EOF sends an end of file
     to the server. An interrupt closes  the  connection  immedi-
     ately and exits.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -pport    Specify the port number  instead  of  the  default
               SMTP port (number 25) as the next argument.


     -r        Raw mode: disable the default line  buffering  and
               input handling. This produces an effect similar to
               telnet(1) to port number 25.


OPERANDS
     The following operand is supported:

     hostname    The name of a given host.


USAGE
     The mconnect command is IPv6-enabled. See ip6(7P).

FILES
     /etc/mail/sendmail.hf    Help file for SMTP commands
