       mconnect - connect to SMTP mail server socket

       mconnect [-p port] [-r] [hostname]

       The mconnect utility opens a connection to the mail server on a given host, so that it can
       be tested independently of all other mail software. If no host is given, the connection is
       made  to  the local host. Servers expect to speak the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)
       on this connection. Exit by typing the quit command. Typing EOF sends an end  of  file  to
       the server. An interrupt closes the connection immediately and exits.

       The following options are supported:

       -pport	 Specify the port number instead of the default SMTP port (number 25) as the next

       -r	 Raw mode: disable the default line buffering and input handling.  This  produces
		 an effect similar to  telnet(1) to port number 25.

       The following operand is supported:

       hostname    The name of a given host.

       The mconnect command is IPv6-enabled. See ip6(7P).

       /etc/mail/sendmail.hf	Help file for SMTP commands
