Investigate adding a 'mail server setup' check for installation and/or site configuration

Reported by dleffler | July 27th, 2011 @ 07:50 PM | in Release Candidate 1 (closed)

Many "e-mail" problems occuring in Exponent are due to an incorrect 'mail server' configuraton. If it's bad, it usually crashes the page (broken css syndrome).

Would be nice to at least have a 'check setup' button on the 'mail server' settings page to send a quick test e-mail and also report back some simple problems encountered.

FWIW, I manually go back & forth to a ocntact form page to send an e-mail when troubleshooting my setup. Would be nice if was all on one page or something.
