This template includes a single component monitor, the IMAP 4 User Experience Monitor, to test an email round trip from your SMTP mail server to your IMAP4 server and measures the time it takes to complete the trip. The response time is measured in milliseconds.

This component monitor uses the following default ports to access Microsoft Exchange mail servers:
