Monitor SMTP Servers

SMTP monitoring connects to your server and attempts an SMTP handshake. If the remote server does not respond to a handshake, is unavailable, or responds with an error, an alert is sent. Full round-trip SMTP server monitoring provides instant alerts and diagnostics for common SMTP errors, such as: error 211, error 421, error 450, error 451, error 550, error 552 and others.

Whether your SMTP server is hosted in-house or via a 3rd party provider, Dotcom-Monitor’s SLA management reporting lets you keep an eye on critical deliverability metrics:
