|Relaying - Test if your XWall is an open relay|
Please read KBXW044 before your run the tests
This site looks a little bit strange due the Japanese characters, but their test is simple and reliable
Checking it manually using Telnet
Abuse.net need authentication to limit the likelihood of abuse
|Virus - Test if XWall catches the EICAR test virus|
You can download the Eicar Test Virus from this site.
The test works by sending the EICAR test virus to your e-mail address.
If the message comes to your inbox, then XWall didn't catch the virus and this indicates that something is wrong.
Also you may check the logfile of XWall to make sure XWall handled the virus correctly.
|SLS/RBL - Test the Spam Lookup Service|
To find out if an IP address is listened on one of the Spam Lookup Service databases use either http://www.dnsstuff.com or the following batch file:
Crynwr Software operates a robot which can test DNS-based spam blocks.
The robot assume that you block the message at the SMTP level. So when you have a different action the XWall will accept the message and then perform the selected action. So even when the robot says Uh-oh, your SBL block is not working!, this does not means that XWall didn't trigger the selected action.
Note: Make sure you have disable the white list in XWall or else your outgoing message will add the e-mail address to the white list and then the test will fail.
