       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	 soft‐
       ware.  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  immedi‐
       ately and exits.

       The following options are supported:

		 Specify  the  port  number  instead  of the default SMTP port
		 (number 25) as the next argument.

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

       The following operand is supported:

		   The name of a given host.

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