DESCRIPTION

smtp-verify could be used to test if mail can be delivered to recipients.

It uses MAIL FROM and RCPT TO commands to test if recipients exist.

Additional checks available are:

check message size and mailbox quotas

If a message size is give and the server supports the SIZE extension it will check if the server will accept the size of the message.

check for STARTTLS

It will check if the STARTTLS extension is available.

check for TLSA record of MX

It will check a TLSA for the MX has been published.

This also requires that your resolver sets the 'ad' flag.

check for OPENPGPKEY record of recipients

It will check a OPENPGPKEY for the recipient address has been published.

This also requires that your resolver sets the 'ad' flag.

If the server provides the PIPELINING extension smtp-verify will send RCPT commands in bulks.
