[Nagiosplug-devel] Check_smtp plug-in suggestion

I am currently using version of the check_smtp plug-in, and I
would like to request that the plug-in have an option for sending the
SMTP command "STARTTLS" prior to sending the "MAIL FROM:" command to the
SMTP server.  With our Exchange 2003 SMTP server, it causes an Event Log
entry to occur every time the check is run against the Exchange SMTP

Event log entry from Windows 2003, Exchange 2003 SMTP Server:

Event Type:	Error
Event Source:	MSExchangeTransport
Event Category:	SMTP Protocol 
Event ID:	7010
Date:		6/20/2005
Time:		3:57:15 PM
User:		N/A
Computer:	EXCH2
This is an SMTP protocol log for virtual server ID 1, connection #980.
The client at "" sent a "mail" command, and the SMTP server
responded with "505 5.7.3 Must issue a STARTTLS command first  ". The
full command sent was "mail FROM:  ".  This will probably cause the
connection to fail.

If there are any questions, or if I can be of more assistance, please
feel free to contact me.

Thank you,
