After this weekend's outage and reading about folks trying to send themselves email and not being sure if spamgourmet's forwarding was working or not I thought I should pass along the test I use.

This URL - - will lead you to a series of tests.
Choose "email dossier" from the Utilities menu on the left.
Enter an email address that you want to test - "doesthiswork.[your identifier]" is one example.
Click the GO button

Now, follow the results to see if you get an error message or a "[Connected]" message and then an "Accepted" message.

A successful session's results follows my signature
