Testing connectivity to a particular port

By Triathlete1981 ·
Is there a way to test the connection to a specific port? I'm trying to remotely fix a sales guy's laptop email. He uses Outlook 2003 and can receive email from our mail server but not send. I've adjusted the timeout to 10 minutes, and still nothing. The sales guy can ping the mail server no problem and pretty quickly too. He's also in
Georgia right now; our mail server's in New Jersey, and he's connected via a wireless AP. And the settings in Outlook are exactly the way it should be. Performed a speed test. His download speed was around 3.5 Mbps but his upload speed was a dismal 300 Kbps. I would like to test the connection to the SMTP port 25 on the mail server from his laptop, and I can do this remotely. But don't know how to test connection to just one port. Any help?
