Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

A new check has been added which can be used to monitor your whole email delivery process. This check sends mails out to a SMTP server of your choice and tries to receive these sent mails by querying a POP3 or IMAP mailbox of your choice.

You can either send the mail directly to this mailbox or use some echo services available on the internet, like for example echo@tu-berlin.de. Just set this as destination mail address and they will send you a response to your SMTP mail shortly.
