Pressing enter will then save the results to your clipboard. The  following  example means  that  you  try  to  connect remote  SMTP server via PORT 25.  You can try to use 26 port too. If  everything is  ok  you  should  receive something  like  this: 220-_ServerName_ ESMTP Exim 4.68 #1 Wed, 06 Feb 2008 02:27:51 +0000 220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited, 220 and/or bulk e-mail.
