Mail Protection: SMTP smarthost test button

Troubleshooting SMTP Smarthost problems with authentication is hard to do. After changing config you need to send test mails to an outside domain and have to watch logging.

Please add a test-button that can report:
1. no connection (IP:Port not listening)
2. connected, but user unknown (550)
3. connected, but wrong password
4. success

        This would be fantastic. I can't tell now if the settings I'm using are correct. I have to try to manufacture an event that would cause a notification to make sure I have the right information. Having the different report levels would be great as well so I know where the error is rather than trying a thousand things trying to guess.
