So finished one half of the email server checker

I finished 1/2 the email checker, its extremely simple it just creates an email with a guid and sends through an external mail account, and then creates a file with the same guid. On the other side it pulls in messages from a different local mail account and compares the subject to the guid subject stored in the file. If it matches within the alloted time fram then it is assumed that the email server is recieving emails. Now I'm going to play with xmppy to send me an IM when the process fails.
