Round Trip Exchange



Hello there,

i want to monitor my Exchange Server, if it receive mails. I used this Manual: https://www.paessler.com/de/manuals/prtg/smtp_imap_round_trip_sensor

But the manual is for imap not for exchange, so i got the Error "Connecting to IMAP Server: Socket Error # 10060 Connection timed out."

How can i make it work ?


exchange roundtrip smtp
