Servers that easily pass tests inside a network often fail when accessed from the outside. For mail servers and email gateways, that can be a problem.
Bettendorf, IA (PRWEB) March 4, 2004
Slow email? Open relay? DNS trouble? A free tool page helps network admins configure, test and troubleshoot email servers and gateways, courtesy of the builders of anti-spam appliance, trimMail Inbox. According to trimMail's Tech Support Manager, Aaron Gillette,"Servers that easily pass tests inside a network often fail when accessed from the outside. For mail servers and email gateways, that can be a problem."
The trimMail team has assembled an impressive array of email management tools from a variety of vendors:
- SMTP Tools test mail servers for open relay and ability to receive messages
- IP Tools include subnet mask and node calculators, outside trace, traffic reports
- DNS Tools help debug Domain Name Service problems and track down spam sources
- Regular Expression Test checks a regular expression for accuracy before going live
- FTC Spam Complaint Form helps admins help the government track spam rings
Combined with a trimMail Inbox or other spam and content filtering appliance, Online Spam Fighting Tools unclog mail servers, conserve bandwidth, streamline mail delivery and slash spam.
Gillette says releasing the tools is a win-win. "We use these tools to help customers every day. Now customers can help themselves, too. Everybody saves a lot of time. And email works again."
trimMail's Online Spam Fighting Tools (http://www.trimmail.com/tools/) concentrate all the troubleshooting tools email administrators need, from SMTP to IP to DNS management, on one page. And best of all, they're free.
