hello friends


Hello evry one,
my name is mahen.
I have setup a linux box with internet connection.
without knowledge of any of iptables i copied some lists from net (which could match my need i.e single PC to internet) and setup internet.
Now I have a query for you......
As we have a good tool "TRACEROUTE" (sorry for being case in-sensitive)
to trace the route for a desired HOST or IP............



DO WE HAVE ANY TOOL WHICH WHEN EXECUTED WOULD SHOW THE PATH OF THE MAIL THAT TRAVERSES FROM MY SYSTEM TOOUTSIDE WORLD IN A CYCLE????


hope i am clear.............
if not please donot mind in asking again to be clear ..........



Mahen

You want to see how your mail is being delivered right? Well, when you are sending mail you can do a 'tail -f <path to your mail log> and see the transaction. However, once it reaches your recipient's MX server, you're done as you can't see what's happening. That's my understanding...
