An SMTP Monitor allows you to test the availability and response time of your SMTP server by connecting to a designated SMTP port (optional: through the secure SSL/TLS connection), via public and private agents.

Once you add an SMTP monitor for your SMTP server, Anturis Agent will start trying to connect to your server according to the time intervals you specified, to check if your SMTP server is accessible.
