Testing for Sendmail Through the Webadmin Interface

You can test your email server by:

1. browsing the FMS webadmin interface (see "Faximum Messaging Server, Administering a" on page 42)

2. clicking on Configure / Email Server (see "Email Server Configuration Options" on page 190)

3. clicking on Test Email Configuration
