It could be interesting if hyperspin test did include an email-roundtrip test.
We could set an target email address (a dedicated test email on the domain)
and a pop login tot that mailbox (server, user, password).
The test-server could send a mail to the target email, and then connect to the POP to see if the test-mail is arrived (in a reasonable delay)
if OK : delete the testmail
If not OK : alert
Using this the complete email route and MTA could be tested (MX DNS-settings, spamfiltering appliance, etc...), and not *only* the port respond.
