Tes procedure to check whether you can send mails via SMTP

I am trying to do some emailing out of Axapta at the moment and I found an old post in the development-axapta mailing list that provides a way to check whether you can send mails via SMTP using telnet.
You can take a look at the post here:

Another tip: if you have installed McAfee VirusScan, it might block all connections on port 25 on your PC (to avoid mass-mailing viruses using this standard SMTP port). So check it and disable it if you want to use SMTP from your PC.

Why not just use the SysEmailBatch-class? It reads the SysEmailParameters by default.

Hi Martin!
Of course you will use the SysMailer or SysEmailBatch classes. My point was that if those classes return a COM error, the post describes a way to find out if the problem is in Axapta or somewhere else (like virus scanner, firewall).
