Exchange questions

Two questions:
1) How can I use telnet to test a NAT to a new e-mail server, behind a firewall, before changing the MX record to point to that new Exchange server?  All the exampes I find describe using the domain name in the test and when I try the IP address instead it does not work.

2) Where can I find a screen / log where I can see both incoming and outgoing e-mail traffic on an Exchange 2003 server?  I want a place I can do a quick check to see if e-mail is flowing in and out when someone says "e-mail is not working".  The queue screen in Exchange 2003 server management seems to only show outbound e-mail.

Thanks

You need to use a machine outside of the network - as simple as that. I have remote control of machines elsewhere that I use to test, or if I am on client site I will remote control my home workstation and telnet back.
You could also use something like http://whatsmyip.org/ports/ to see if the port is open. There are various other tools that do the same thing on the internet.

For checking message flow, enable message tracking.

Once it is enabled, simply search for messages in the last hour or so, and all messages will be shown.
