Right, KM, might not be not near close to perfect. I made it more than 5 years ago, when I needed something to check email syntax AND server MX records in order to give me a clue in debuging SMTP errors on mail servers and could not find anything close to this functionality at that moment. It really worked for me since then (when I'm not sure, I get the old telnet 25 which is more suitable for this kind of checks).
Thanks for your tips, but I will have to make time to check the eregi syntax you gave (I'm not a programmer, i work in other fields of IT / networking, php was / is just a week-end and late-nights hobby for me! ;) ).
